Jim Ross Details "Calmer" Atmosphere Of AEW Collision
Jim Ross believes the atmospheres of AEW Dynamite and AEW Collision are very different, describing the latter as “a lot calmer.”
Good Ol’ JR made his surprise return to AEW last week for Collision’s main event between CM Punk and Ricky Starks for Punk’s so-called ‘Real World Championship’. Ross was originally expected to return towards the end of this month, in time for All In.
On the latest edition of his Grilling JR podcast, Ross discussed his return to the promotion and went on to describe the contrast between AEW Dynamite and AEW Collision – claiming Collision is calmer due to a smaller, more focused roster working those shows.
“The atmosphere at Collision, in my opinion, is entirely different than the mindset and the atmosphere at Dynamite. There’s less people, less crew, less talents, so it’s a lot calmer. I think the talents have more time to work their matches out. It’s just a different atmosphere, and it’s a good atmosphere.
Always fun. Good seeing the talents. We got a good crew going. I think Punk and Tony Khan pretty much put that roster together, and I like it. That’s good talents. They’re motivated. They like the ownership of that show and the fact that they can make a difference, and I think that’s cool. All good, man. I’m looking to it. I enjoy being around the talent.”
