• Jim Cornette Says More People Have Bought Tickets To Watch Him Take A Sh*t Than See An IMPACT Star
IMPACT Wrestling star Kylie Rae isn’t afraid to start a Twitter beef with Jim Cornette. She recently took a shot at Cornette for what he was accused of forcing wrestlers to do in OVW.
Below is what she wrote:
“Me seeing all the wrestlers Jim Cornette used to sh?t on, rise above and constantly succeed time and time again. ? ?? “
Cornette, as usual, got mad pretty quickly and responded the following to Rae:
“Rise above what to succeed as what? Sketch comedy? Skateboarding? High school theatre? Also, who dafuk are YOU again? More people have bought tickets to watch me take a sh*t. Mind your manners chickadee.”
Rise above what to succeed as what? Sketch comedy? Skateboarding? High school theatre? Also, who dafuk are YOU again? More people have bought tickets to watch me take a shit. Mind your manners chickadee.
