“But, man I got everything on that thing from people wanting me to die. Here’s what’s sad about that deal, it’s not about my mispronouncing, this is a much bigger issue in my opinion.”
“That’s all this is folks, my opinion. It’s the flavor of the country right now, it’s just where we are and it’s sad, I don’t even know what you call it, the cancel culture.”
“It was a little rugged. The thing about it is people misquote information, without any thought, there’s no conscious involved.”
“It’s not the fact that I might get this right if I say JR has onset dementia, but then what if you’re wrong? How do you pull that back in? Well, it’s out there so you don’t pull it back in.”
Ross has called plenty of big moments in pro wrestling. Therefore, everyone makes mistakes and he cannot be belittled for a small error on live TV.
In short, wishing death upon someone is absurd and should be criminal. So, a great show by AEW despite some fans focusing on one mistake.
