• Jim Cornette Is Against Vince McMahon Returning To WWE (Reason)
On the newest episode of his weekly ‘The Jim Cornette Experience’ podcast, the legendary Old School WWF Manager talked about the recent rumors that Vince McMahon might attempt to return to WWE in some capacity.
Cornette said Vince shouldn’t return to WWE as that would be bad for Public Relations and the creative product.
Below is what he said:
“Well, one would think the advice was coming from inside the house. But I don’t think that was the only place that advice was coming from. He probably, some people that would give him the same advice, he wouldn’t blame them as much as people close to him.
That’s who he would blame for the advice because they should have known better, but that’s the Vince that I knew and worked with. Deny, deny, deny, do what you want to do, it’s all gonna blow over, move on or whatever the f**k however you want to describe that.
I think it’s probably coming from what have we said? Vince wasn’t gonna not work, Vince has been working on something, he’s probably been working on figuring out how to get back to work. But he’s been working on something, he has been occupying his time with something. And or whether it’s dwelling on what happened, because Jesus Christ, sh*t does blow over.
At various points, a lot of people have been the, you know, the worst person in the world and cancelled and nobody wants to hear from them again. And then suddenly they’re back doing commercials or whatever.
But you know, in this case, Vince is probably, he didn’t think that, as we saw from the first couple of appearances he did on television, he thought it was gonna blow over, he wasn’t gonna put it over.
Then someone got to him with how serious it was, and it is going to be bad if something doesn’t happen, and he acquiesced to it. And in probably whatever point in time after that, however quickly it was that he started getting bored, and or ruminating about it. And now he wants something to f**king do. And you cannot stop Vince McMahon, like I said, from either working or working on a way to start working again.
Well, the questions to or the answers to both those questions have come when as soon as that article was released, and that statement from Vince was in there, the stock price went down a couple dollars. And secondly, well, all we’ve been talking about for the past couple of months now or more. Guys want to go back and work for Triple H.
So no, I think it’s bad creatively because RAW is not setting, or all programs are not setting the world on fire with the ratings either. But at least they’re trying to do something to get out of that goofy funk that they were in the last little while with Vince. And so yeah, I don’t see a lot of the guys wanting [a Vince return].
The old guys that made a ton of money with Vince and worked with him when he, you know, before he lost his mind apparently, they love him, and they take up for him. But I think the guys that were there and having to buck up under all that stuff.
I think no, I think Vince for PR, for creative and potentially just for hiring, he needs to, he needs to be separated from that situation. But it’s his, how can you separate him if you don’t want to be separated?
I said a couple months ago, maybe it was by now, that he is the kind of guy that he said to Triple H, it’s yours now. You’re picking the flavour of ice cream, so I’m not going to interfere. Well, that’s best for business, and that’s an opinion that Vince will have until he changes his mind and thinks that well, maybe God dammit, it might be better if I did something else, and came back or whatever. And then that might be tough talking about.”
On July 22nd 2022, long-time WWF/WWE promoter Vince McMahon officially retired from all his positions within WWE as a result of the ongoing hush money & $exual misconduct scandals.
