Jim Ross Talks Seth Rollins as a Baby Face, AJ Styles and Kevin Owens’ Championship Runs

WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross was recently interviewed by TSN to promote his upcoming Ringside show in Toronto on November 20th. You can check out some highlights here:

On Seth Rollins as a babyface:

“I think once [Rollins] gets engaged in an issue with an established villain, once the hero is wronged illegally, once he’s faced with seemingly challenging odds, all that babyface stuff will start filtering his way. He has always wrestled – with his athleticism and high-flying stuff – as a fan favourite, so he doesn’t have to change that. I think the subtle things – maybe his promo work will be tweaked a little bit, but he’s got to have a cause. Once his cause is established with an established villain, it will take care of itself.”

On AJ Styles of Kevin Owens’ title reigns:

“The WWE has done really well. They gave a hungry Kevin Owens – a Canadian that’s loved wrestling since he’s been alive – and A.J., an overachiever, an amazing athlete and those are their two champions. So I think if that’s an illustration of where they’re headed, I kind of like their athletic direction.”

    The difference is that texans don’t consider themselves as a nation. Ok some of them want to separate but culturally, they still share the same language and mostly the same culture than the rest of the USA. The problem is that most people don’t differentiate between citizenship and nationality. Owens is a Canadian citizen but his national identity is Quebecer.

    Only uneducated and closed minded people like you.

    LOL. No one cares. He’s still a Canadian.

  • Daniel Stockwell

    Your original point is that JR was incorrect in calling him Canadian. He is a Quebecer but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to call him Canadian. People from Texas may want to be referred to as Texan but that doesn’t mean they are not American. An Englishman, Scotsman, Northern Irishman or Welshman identify as being from another country but they are still British.

    And Btw, Quebec is a somewhat someveign state within Canada (but so are the other provinces in that aspect though) since Canada is a federation and not a unitarian state. In a federation, sovereignty is shared between the central state and the member states.

  • Max

    so? it is still considered as a nation by a majority of Quebecers, even by many federalists. Quebec’s status as a province of Canada has nothing to do with its nationhood. Since the Quiet Revolution of the 1960s, the correct term to be used is Quebecer.

  • Daniel Stockwell

    Quebec is a province of Canada, not a sovereign state within Canada.

  • Max

    “A Canadian”…
    Somebody should educate Jim Ross about the fact that the correct terminology is “Quebecer”, and that Quebec forms a distinct nation inside Canada.
