Matt Hardy got involved in a Twitter war with Jim Cornette.
On last week’s episode of AEW Rampage, Dark Order defeated The Elite (“Hangman” Adam Page & Young Bucks) in a Trios Match, after interference from Konosuke Takeshita & ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli.
Matt Hardy tweeted the following after this match:
“Dark Order vs. The Elite was a fantastic match. It’s nice to see Dark Order earn such a well deserved spotlight.
The Young Bucks & Adam Page are extraordinary talents that will unfortunately get their flowers way later than they should.”
A fan replied:
“Matt’s right though. I know it’s cool to hate on The Bucks and Hangman if you’re a CM Punk/Collision fan but not from me. Give those guys their flowers.”
Matt saw this and responded with the following tweet:
“Between this & the toxic Cornette cult, these guys don’t get the adoration that they truly deserve.
The diehard Elite fans are phenomenal & get why they’re special, but there’s a huge chunk of fans that fail to give them the credit they deserve.
Give these guys their flowers.”
Cornette saw this and replied:
“Jeez, Matt, I could understand selling your soul for Rock & Roll, but selling it for Adderall? Even if you have to abandon your principles and verbally fellate these childish cretins for your check, leave my fans alone, it’s not their fault Tony’s not paying THEM enough to lie.”
Matt then tweeted:
“Jeez, Jim, haven’t sold my soul, I’m sticking to my principles & telling truths. I feel morally obligated to do right by my friends, although that’s probably foreign to you. I earn a check because I’m great at what I do & still employable. Keep on seeding dissension amongst fans with your schtick, it’s too sweet!”
After this, Cornette’s podcast co-host Brian Last attacked Matt and they had a back & forth. You can read their exchange below:
Brian: He thinks he is great at what he does! We’ve all been watching: His promos suck, his in-ring work is sh*t, and the only thing anyone has ever been interested in him doing is tagging in his brother. Jim telling the truth is “seeding dissension”? How many concussions is too many?
Matt: I am great at what I do, Brian Least. I am great at pro wrestling. I am great at giving back & helping young talent. You’re just some a$$hole with an opinion & that opinion doesn’t mean sh*t in reality. But most importantly, just an a$$hole.
Brian: You’ve been a great enabler, but you know your crap has sucked for years. And that’s Mr. A$$hole, to you! Toxic!
Matt: Another sh*tty joke, must be your forte, Least! My sh*t’s good, your sh*t is sh*t, you toxic, b*tcha$$ a$$hole.
Brian: Are you trying to convince yourself? Your work is sh*t. Stay home, no one will care. You seem much more toxic than I am, with a track record to back it up. I’m better at what I do than you are at whatever it is you are still trying to do. – Mr. A$$hole, to you.
Matt: Don’t have to convince myself, my live reactions, paycheck & appearance fees solidify I’m good. I don’t know sh*t about you, nor care to. So keep doing what you’re good at, you goofy, b*tcha$$ a$$hole. I’ll do the same & you can continue to whine & cry about it like a baby.
Cornette: I’d like to thank Brian Last for staying up into the night toying with this concussed ex-great while he was protesting too much about how successful he is. I go to sleep too early on Saturday nights to have time to play with kids. Golly, Matt, don’t you have signings to do?
Matt: Last night was Sunday, Jimmy, maybe you’re the concussed one. You’re definitely an ex-great. I used to have massive respect for you, but that’s been long gone. That’s the case with many people now & it’s sad. This is my final tweet to you.
You & Least keep doing your Shock Jock routines & fanning those toxic flames of hate & negativity for your zombies to slurp up. Make those bucks however you can though, right? Enjoy your life, Jim, I’ll certainly enjoy mine.
Brian: How dare you! You’re way goofier than me. You understand that you are the one whining & crying, right? Can you still comprehend that much? Once again, you seem quite TOXIC! Is everything ok?
Matt: Me stating that you 2 constantly fuel a toxic culture isn’t whining, it’s just hard truths. You constantly moaning & b*tching about me wrestling is whining & crying – Can you discern that or are you a mooncalf?
I’m great, btw. Just did a huge Con in TN, have 4 beautiful kids, financially set for life, still get to live my dream, have major respect within my industry, am considered a living legend, been a huge contributor to pro wrestling & no rando from the internet’s opinion is gonna change ANY of this. Especially not an egotistical a$$hole like Brian Least.
Congrats on the podcast, it’ll be a great way to be remembered in history. Enough of this silly a$$ cyber convo, it’s time to go crawl up on top of my hot a$$ wife.
