Jim Ross Looks Back On The WWE Career Of Sid Vicious, Recalls Vicious Winning The World Title
WWE Hall of Famer and current AEW commentator Jim Ross spoke about the career of Sid Vicious on the latest edition of his Grillin JR podcast. Ross recalls Vicious being an attraction for the company, and comments on his world title win over Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series 1996 pay per view. Highlights are below.
Thoughts on Sid Vicious:
Not all sizzle, but I think he was an attraction. Attractions are to be seen seldomly and to be kept in their lane. He was never gonna be a Funk or a Brisco. He was an attraction. Hes like I tried to explain to the writers, hes like Vader. Hes like Vinces dad booked Andre. The less you see them, the better off you are.
Recalls Vicious winning the world title from Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series:
When he won the title, I think that to me was a crescendo for Sid of matches I can recall off the top of my head. And lets also be honest, he was in there with one of the best ever and it was a long-term storyline that was gonna culminate in the Alamo Dome in Shawns hometown. So, all the pieces were already set in place. I think that was probably Sids best night. Of course, it was at the Garden, so that always adds a little. The arena always added some value.
