AEW commentator Jim Ross has pinpointed the “most exciting night” of his WWE Hall Of Fame career that is now in its 47th year.
Ross has been ringside for a plethora of huge moments in the history of professional wrestling. From Mankind crashing from the top of Hell In A Cell to Steve Austin winning his first WWF Championship to Roman Reigns taking over The Undertaker’s yard at WrestleMania, Jim Ross has provided the lyrics to some of wrestling’s sweetest songs on its biggest nights over the years.
Jim Ross took to social media to respond to fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray who posted a line-up for a show WWE held in Madison Square Garden in September 2000. At that event, the good people of New York were treated to a card featuring no less than sixteen future WWE Hall Of Famers.
The action kicked off with Mideon facing William Regal who was still billed as Steven William Regal at the time. Too Cool faced off against Lo’Down and the WWE Hardcore Title was on the line as Steve Blackman defended his crown against Gangrel.
Jerry Lawler teamed with his then-wife The Kat to face Tazz and Ivory before The Acolytes faced Bull Buchanan and The Goodfather. The Hardy Boyz teamed with Lita to face T&A along with Trish Stratus. Al Snow defended the WWF European Championship against Perry Saturn and the WWF Tag Team Title was on the line as champions Edge and Christian defended against The Dudley Boyz.
Rikishi teamed with Chris Jericho to face Eddie Guerrero and X-Pac and in the main event of the night The Rock, The Undertaker, and Triple H teamed up to face Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, and Kane.
Jim Ross mentioned how loaded the card was but another night in NYC takes the top spot as the most exciting of Ross’ career – AEW Grand Slam:
“Who booked this card for goodness sakes? #AEWDynamiteGrandSlam? Like @AEW #AEWGrandSlam, this MSG card was loaded. But IMO, Wednesday night was the most exciting night of my pro wrestling career which started in 1974. #Blessed [cowboy hat face emoji]”
