Jim Ross calls Kevin Owens versus Steve Austin a 'masterpiece'
Legendary announcer Jim Ross has given huge credit to both Steve Austin and Kevin Owens for their efforts at WrestleMania 38 (Night One), labelling the match between the pair 'a masterpiece'.
As well as being the lead announcer for pretty much all of Stone Cold's WWE career, Good ol' JR was also head honcho in the Talent Relations department during Austin's tenure and the two are noted close friends.
Speaking on the latest episode of the Grilling JR podcast, Ross said the following regarding Austin versus Owens:
"You know, he and I talked going into that thing and we communicated on Saturday after the show. He seemed to be real happy and really almost relieved that they pulled it off. He and Kevin Owens deserve a hell of a lot of credit for what they did, and it shows you what kind of ballplayer Austin is. He hadn't been on the field, what was it? 19 years, something like that. He didn't look like he missed a step and they kept the match in their lane. I thought that was really smart. How they strategised and laid out that match, it was just absolutely a masterpiece, in my view. Kevin Owens deserves a lot of credit, as well. You gotta have a dancing partner to make these things work, and Steve had a great dancing partner".
Ross also revealed that he didn't know The Texas Rattlesnake would be appearing on night two and that he preferred it that way, while also praising the event's production values.
