• Jim Cornette Says Released WWE Wrestler Is A ‘F*cking Mental Case’
It looks like Mark Henry isn’t the only one who has problems with Lio Rush.
Jim Cornette also spoke against the former NXT Cruiserweight Champion on Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru:
“Lio Rush is a f*cking mental case. I’ve been saying that since [WWE] signed him first, right? Remember he’s the one that took the f*cking powerbomb off the roof or something in some garbage wrestling show in New Jersey. That was his farewell [before going to WWE] and he no sold it so he could pop up and take a bow. So he’s always been a f*cking idiot.
A million dollar talent if they’d have made him an a**hole manager that you wanted to f*cking see…you would pay to see him get the sh*t kicked out of him. But, he wants to be a f*cking wrestling superstar at 5-foot-2 and 140 pounds.
Obviously a f*cking screw loose because he’s always f*cking torpedoing his own self. Because nobody gives a sh*t whether he’s around or not when he’s running his mouth.
I can run my mouth because I’m here at home and I don’t give a sh*t whether I go anywhere, but him? He still wants a f*cking job allegedly.”
