Jim Ross Calls MJF & William Regal's Dynamite Promo One Of The Best He's Ever Heard

High praise from the legendary announcer

Legendary announcer Jim Ross has heaped high praise on the promo between MJF and William Regal from the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite. 

Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer outlined outlined why he believes the promo was one of the best he's ever seen. 

"He and MJF's promo was as good as I've heard in years. That’s going through the Attitude Era and the whole nine yards," said Ross. "I was really, really proud of both guys. Regal's facial expressions are priceless. Sometimes he doesn't have to say one single word, and you know exactly what he's thinking in the lay of this land. He's been a valuable asset and addition to the AEW team, and I thought he helped make MJF, which is the goal. I mean, MJF has the rocket ship tied to him, and one would think it'll just be a matter of time until he's the kingpin. The match is booked now with Moxley and MJF, and I'm kind of glad they did it this way because we now have a main event for the next pay-per-view and the right guy is being chauffeured to the top. You've gotta do that.

"I thought that promo was absolute money, especially when you consider they did it without a writer. They didn't have a script, they didn't memorise their lines, 'You say this, you pause, I'll say that, then I'll pause. Then we'll look at each other, and you'll blink, then I'll blink'. F*ck, is that it? Really? That's your instincts? I just thought those guys did as good of an in-ring promo I can remember hearing. I'm sure I've heard others that impacted me as much, but that was a piece of art. That was a historic promo that we'll look back on someday and say this was the launching pad because I don't know if MJF is really a babyface or a heel right now. They couldn't have done any better, and I'm proud of both of those guys".

Ross also spoke highly of Regal in general, noting that he's been a huge asset to AEW behind-the-scenes since joining the company earlier this year.
