• Jim Cornette Responds To Seth Rollins Being Upset Over The Comments He Made About Becky Lynch

Seth Rollins said that Jim Cornette’s comments against Becky Lynch were very hurtful for him, while speaking on WWE’s After The Bell podcast (tap here to read Cornette’s comments).

Cornette responded to him on his Drive-Thru podcast:

“When he said that it hurt his feelings he felt bad because I did not believe that I said anything that should have hurt Seth Rollins’ feelings and the bone of contention where I hurt his feelings is that I said bad things about [Becky Lynch] obviously that would hurt someone’s feelings, but let’s go back and see did I say anything bad about Becky Lynch as a talent or a person?

I said she was the biggest female wrestling star and maybe the biggest wrestling star in the world because there ain’t a lot of male stars these days. That’s not bad.

I said she was a ‘Female Stone Cold’ that f*cking was a huge box office draw and was the most important member of the women’s division. I never said anything about her. Her looks? I think she’s a very attractive young lady.”

Cornette went on to say that WWE is losing a lot of money due to Lynch’s pregnancy. He also admitted that he did ‘paint a less than attractive picture of the physical effects of pregnancy’.
