• Jim Cornette Bashes AEW For Underutilizing Wrestlers
During a recent edition of his weekly ‘Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru’ podcast, the legendary Old School NWA/WWF Manager addressed Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling not utilizing their wrestlers properly.
Here’s what Jim Cornette said:
“You really cannot develop PowerHouse Hobbs if you are not even able to see Hobbs. They start these projects where any number of people have potential and ‘okay let’s get it going!’ and then they just go away.
Whether it is Brian Pillman Jr. or Hobbs or any of the other people we have talked about. Yeah, that was good for a couple of weeks only. And you do not just let people drop in every so often if you are genuinely trying to get wrestlers over.”
Jim Cornette is widely considered AEW’s biggest critic worldwide, but has yet to receive an offer from Tony Khan to actually appear on TV for them (although Tony has noted in the past that he cares about Jim’s opinion).
It’s safe to say that him being involved in a storyline on TV would be interesting and controversial at the same time.
