(He’s) big, pleasant, polite, intelligent, never had any issues with any of those guys in the locker room,” said Jim Ross.
The former WWE commentator praised several of AEW’s young stars, including Darby Allin, MJF, Sammy Guevara, Jungle Boy, and Ricky Starks, to name a few. He also praised the tag team of Santana and Ortiz and said that he is a “mark” for another former WWE star, Jake Hager.
