AEW announcer Jim Ross names a WWE star that he thinks is “very underrated”

While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross discussed the upcoming Bloodline vs. Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton, and Kevin Owens match at the 2024 WWE Money in the Bank PLE. JR gave praise to both Owens and Orton…

“I think Kevin Owens is very underrated. He’s got some Stone Cold (Steve Austin) qualities I think are important. Tough kid. Good dude. He’s not overwhelmed with chrome. He’s a smart guy. And I like Kevin Owens a lot.”

“And Randy is a staple. Randy has been around long enough now to where it’s hard for him to do things or not. That’s not surprising. He’s just consistent as hell, you know. I had to really talk long and hard to get Vince to sign him because he was dishonorably discharged from the Marines back in the day. So he’s had a wonderful career. And he’s made a lot of money, which I’m very happy for. [He’s] done a great job. So we’ll see. He’s a lifer there. WWE is lucky to have him because he can still go out and have that great match when he wants to. And I love his game. He’s over. And when you get somebody over, all you want to do is build on that. And I think they’re doing a nice job of not overexposing Randy. I expect Randy to be a heel sooner than later and work with Cody (Rhodes). That’s just a guess. But to me, they would have great chemistry. And I would love to see that hot, personal issue because the matches themselves would be outstanding.” (quotes courtesy of
