AEW’s Jim Ross: ‘Logical things’ to address with Punk vs. Moxley rematch

JR also said he feels five-hour pay-per-views are "just too long."

Jim Ross feels there are logistical concerns to address regarding the build to Jon Moxley vs. CM Punk at AEW All Out. 

JR appeared on a fundraiser for Steve "Mongo" McMichael on Saturday along with Conrad Thompson, Ric Flair, Jeff Jarrett, and Tony Schiavone. During the panel discussion, JR was asked about Sunday's pay-per-view. 

"Well, I think it's going to be very unpredictable because I don't know how you book this card. I don't know how you have a match on Wednesday and your champion gets his ass whipped like a government mule and then you expect to return it Sunday. Why do I need a return? You just got your ass whipped. So there's logical things we have to address, quite frankly. I think it's going to be a very challenging show for Tony Khan to book but it's loaded."

JR then shared his concerns about the length of the show. 

"My biggest concern is the fact that I will definitely be wearing darks because a brother's got to piss," JR said. 

"This is going to be a 5-hour show. I'm not in favor of any 5-hour show. It's just too long. Our attention spans are not going to maintain what it needs to be. It's a chance for a lot talents to clear the deck and make a name for themselves. I say that at every pay-per-view."
