• Jim Cornette Rips AEW’s Current Women’s Division
While speaking on his Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette said that AEW should sign former IMPACT World Champion, Tessa Blanchard, to legitimize their Women’s Division.
Below are the highlights:
On how he thinks AEW should sign Tessa Blanchard:
“Since her father is over on the other channel, and she’s one of the best female workers in the world, Charlotte Flair level, the last time that I saw her, maybe even better with some of the facials and sh*t, AEW wouldn’t want an actual legitimate women’s division?”
On how if he was in charge of AEW, he’d put the women’s title on Tessa despite her controversial reputation:
“Tully was not the most popular, gregarious mtherf*cker in the locker room for Crockett either, but he was so f*cking good, and he drew money, and people put up with it. I don’t give a f*ck what they do with their women’s division because I don’t give a f*ck what they do, but if they are serious about actually having a women’s division, and a professional wrestling company, and they want to get away from the Japanese schoolgirls or the parade of indie-rific, poorly booked, green, inexperienced talent that they have paraded through under the guise of female wrestlers, if I was Tony Khan, I would f*cking talk to Tessa Blanchard, and as long as she was willing to do business, and didn’t seem to be causing any issues or trying to cause any issues with coming to a deal, I would then basically bring her in, put the belt on her, and have all these other girls do a job on the way out and just f*cking hide them somewhere and get me some women that can work with Tessa and start all over again, or else, I just wouldn’t bring her in and keep having the same green girls having the same sh*tty matches.”
On how Tony Khan should tell Tessa that if she doesn’t do what’s best for business, he will fire her and her father:
“Tully Blanchard is working in AEW, obviously has had a relationship with Tony Khan for some period of time, months, whatever. I think they could all sit down, and if Tony Khan was Bill Watts, and commanded some respect, OK, I know I’ve already jumped the shark, he could sit down, he could say, ‘You know what, I am willing, because of your great talent and the Blanchard name in the business, to do business with both of you guys, but this sh*t needs to work out. If you have any other idea of coming in here and doing anything else besides being the women’s champion and leading the division and doing what’s best for business, as we all agree that that’s what it is, then great, that’s what I want to do, if not, I’ll fire you, I’ll fire your father, I’ll hire somebody else from your family just so I can fire them too.’”
On what AEW should do to build a women’s division around Tessa:
“Then bring in any girl in the business, that is not under contract to the WWE, that can have a legitimate, athletic contest with Tessa Blanchard, whoever that may be. Don’t do any of this intergender bullsh*t so everybody tunes out and goes what the f*ck and you’re left with the same kind of goddamn play wrestling fans you started with. Focus this girl that works like a f*cking guy and has that game face and believable sh*t and out-f*cking Charlotte and Rhea Ripley the other f*cking channel.
If you wanted to establish a women’s division, you could do that. Or you could keep letting a bunch of goddamn pampered, inexperienced indie-rific outlaw guys recommend their f*cking girlfriends and goddamn significant others and trainees and people that saw on a f*cking rec center show and it popped them in front of a 100 people. And that’s the kind of girls matches you’ve got right now.”
