Jim Ross and Taz are brutally honest when it comes to WWE and the ongoing Wednesday Night War between AEW Dynamite and NXT.
Speaking on the post-show for the July 22 episode of Dynamite, Ross gave his own pitch as to why people should watch Dynamite and not NXT, even going as far as questioning why there's even a choice viewers have to make in regards to their Wednesday wrestling viewing.
"This is going to sound real ass kissing, but why is there even a choice on Wednesday nights? DVR NXT. Watch it later. Our shit's better and I'm proud of being able to say that and it's not in defiance. It's the reality," Ross said.
Taz then added his comments by saying that he hasn't seen NXT in some time and addressed AEW taking shots and acknowledging WWE in the past. Taz said AEW does it because it respects the audience's intelligence unlike WWE as he claims.
"I don't really remember the last time I watched that show. I'm not bullshitting. I really don't remember and I don't give a rat's ass about it. I respect the men and women there bumping and working. I'm not trying to be a homer and I don't give a shit if someone thinks that. I'm so locked into this, I don't really give a rat's ass about it... What we're doing is that we're not insulting your intelligence and we're acknowledging WWE. They're the ones insulting your intelligence," Taz said.
"Well here's the thing. Do you think any of those TV shows or streaming shows that WWE does would ever mention us? Shit no. They're arrogant and omnipotent. They're the kings of the mountain," Ross said.
