Jim Ross Names AEW's Biggest Future Stars

JR is full of hope for AEW's future

Jim Ross believes Jungle Boy has all the credentials to be a leader and star for AEW in the long-term future, while also hailing Adam Cole, MJF and Darby Allin.

Ross has seen close up how good AEW's youngsters are and believes the future looks bright for All Elite Wrestling. 

Speaking during a recent episode of the Grilling JR Podcast, Ross said: "Based on aptitude and not eliminating anyone from the process, I can see Adam Cole certainly being one of those guys. Smart kid, got a great mind for the business, he’s young, he’s healthy.

"MJF without a doubt. He’s got a terrific wrestling mind, he knows how to be annoying. He’s very easy to dislike, which is the greatest trait a wrestling villain can have. So, I have great confidence that he’s going to be a star for years to come, and a big one.

"I think Jungle Boy Jack Perry is going to be one of our leaders and stars of the future, long term future. Darby Allin is over, some how some way. He’s a strange enigma just like Jeff Hardy was. Scorpio and Ethan Page got leadership written all over them.

"The good news is we’ve got several guys that can assume that role because of their aptitude for pro-wrestling."
