AEW commentator and veteran announcer Jim Ross has named two AEW stars he believes could be foundation pieces of AEW.
Speaking on his Grillin’ JR podcast, JR praised Wardlow and ‘Powerhouse’ Will Hobbs for their recent work together.
Noting that they’re at the top of his list of stars who could carry the company one day, Jim Ross said:
“Wardlow comes to my mind, quite frankly, and quickly. I think Wardlow is good. I think that Willie Hobbs has got a great upside in the future.
“He’s got a great look. Wonderful attitude. Those are two guys we just saw wrestle here a while back a week or so ago, with Wardlow winning the TNT Title back.
“I think both those guys have a chance to be the two of the big foundation pieces in AEW, if TK as he’s known, decides to go that way.
“They’re both very good. They’re both young. They’re big, strong, athletic. I really enjoy working with both of those guys. There’s rarely a television that goes by, Conrad, that I don’t spend some time talking to both those guys.
“Not necessarily together, but where we have a little conversation about how things are going. They’ll ask me questions about the last match they had that they thought I might have seen, and I’ve pretty much seen them all.
“So I think those two guys are the likely candidates. Are they the only candidates? Probably not, but they’re at the top of the list.”
Wardlow and Hobbs were recently feuding over the TNT Championship, with Hobbs defeating Wardlow for the gold on the March 8 edition of Dynamite, and Wardlow winning the gold back on the April 19 show.
Wardlow recently pitched a match against a notable WWE Hall of Famer, which you can read more about right here.
