Throughout a latest episode of Grilling JR, Jim Ross spoke on the problems with the deliberate ring explosion on the finish of AEW Revolution. Right here’s what he needed to say:
It bombed. It was a malfunction of the pyro. The irony of that was, due to all the hearth marshals and security precautions and so forth, that they had run by that a number of instances. They labored nice. Simply what we wanted. However then when it got here to showtime, you by no means know once you’re doing reside tv. [Vince] McMahon at all times stated nothing may go unsuitable once you’re doing reside TV – properly, there’s an exception or two. However nonetheless, I actually beloved the pay-per-view itself. In the event you can exclude out of your thoughts and get off the hill of simply speaking about one situation, I believe most are gonna say it was a reasonably rattling good present. I believed the present was sturdy apart from that miss on the pyro on the finish.
If the 30 seconds on the finish is gonna be your solely standards of whether or not you appreciated a present or not, whether or not it was shot or not, you is perhaps overanalyzing just a bit bit. All of the stuff main as much as that, I believed was sturdy. I’m positive the abilities, they had been very pissed off as a result of they labored their asses off and acquired pricked with barbed wire from head to toe. So, now, all we’re speaking about shouldn’t be their work or effort, however the malfunctioning pyro turns into the story. To me, that pay-per-view was far more than the pyro. It was a pyro failure, however I don’t imagine it was a wrestling failure by any means. Aside from the pyro scenario, I believed it was the very best pay-per-view we’ve had.
