• Jim Cornette Thinks WWE Should Fire Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville For Staying Together
While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Experience, Jim Cornette discussed the upcoming No Disqualification, Loser Leaves WWE match, which was previously a Hair vs. Hair match, between Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.
Cornette was mad at the fact that Rose and Deville broke kayfabe by staying together (as that information came out during the Sonya Deville – stalker incident).
“It’s okay if they were in their homes together and then nobody found out, but if it becomes public they must be fined.”
Cornette then changed his mind and said that they should be fired for it.
“Hair vs. Hair match… Oh for f*ck’s sake! Well, they’re both attractive looking young ladies, so who’s gonna bite that bullet. One of them is just going to shave their f*cking head.
Well, once again if I mean I’m all in favor. That’s a match you can’t call. The finish to it, and I think it would be a big draw, if they could actually sell tickets. They can’t even sell pay-per-view because there’s no such thing anymore. It’s on the network, right? So why the f*ck would either one of them want to get their head shaved?
Are they just paying a bonus for the hell of it? But nevertheless, okay they’re wrestling on the big show. They’re just in the world wide news in each other’s home.
I say f*cking fire them! I’d fire them. Fire them in six months like they did with Gallows and Anderson. When they fired then it was convenient, but fun. Got to be consistent f*cking sh*tting on their f*cking match right in their home.”
He then ended by saying that if they escaped the house, Deville should’ve dropped Rose somewhere.
