AEW commentator Jim Ross thinks one missing superstar is still the best worker in WWE.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross worked for the company for years before transitioning to AEW. The legendary commentator has called some of the brightest and deplorable moments in the company’s history. While JR exclusively works for AEW, he still keeps up with the WWE product and believes one current injured superstar is their best worker.
Speaking on the latest Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross stated that ‘The Viper’ Randy Orton is the best worker in WWE right now:
“Randy’s amazing. Yeah, he’s amazing, he still is amazing. He may be the best worker on the WWE roster. Pure worker. You wouldn’t get too many of the talents to disagree that, everybody wants to work with Randy. This guy you gotta hope he gets healthy and it gets back in business. But yeah, he was just such a young kid sucking up all that information and knowledge and experiences. I was always proud of Randy’s in-ring he was just a natural as we know and he showed that.”
Orton became the latest wrestler to be put on the shelf after sustaining a back injury. There were reports of him potentially challenging Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, but it appears Orton won’t be back until early next year. WWE already found a replacement in the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar.
