>As AEW presents their third show this weekend, Fight for the Fallen, good Ol' J.R. spoke with Busted Open Radio about the company and Jon Moxley joining the roster. Two-events in and AEW has certainly generated headlines. While many of the reviews of the events have been complimentary, there was some criticism of the Fyter Fest pre-show. Ross is a part of that crowd."Honestly, I wasn't crazy about it, I do not think it sold enough of what we were doing on the main show," Ross said. "I didn't think it was what we needed to be doing. Now, I like comedies, when I'm drinking those are my go-to. I think we have to be selling a good sampling of what we do in the main show. If you have a pregame show for a pay-per-view, those matches shouldn't just be filler, they should be something."
>Ross is adjusting to many new aspects within his role with AEW. One of those adjustments is working in a three-man booth. Ross is adamantly not a fan of those but feels with work, the AEW announce team could be quite good."We have to continue to work hard to get better, we are not nearly as good as we need to be," Ross mused. "But, that's not a surprise, we are brand new. We did a show in Vegas with no net. We are new, we are green in that regard. Excalibur is an excellent talent, I like his voice, he has great knowledge and he has passion in his heart. Alex Marvez, I would love to see him in an insider role. I work with two guys that are a lot smarter than me. We got to have reps and we have got to get better. We have got to clarify what the roles are in that three-man unit. I have every confidence in the world that when we go on television in October, we will be prepared to do a good job for the fans."
>Last weekend, NJPW hosted the first night of the G1 Climax in Dallas. Even though his block was not competing in tournament matches, some fans were surprised that he wasn't on the card, especially since Moxley is the U.S. Champion. There were reports that AEW had blocked him from competing on the show, however Moxley claims that he had a prior engagement."I wasn't booked on that to begin with," Moxley stated. "That is nothing. I was previously engaged when this happened. So, I will start on July 13th."
