• Top AEW Wrestler Calls Jim Cornette & His Group ‘Pathetic Human Beings’
It’s no secret that Jim Cornette is by far the biggest critic of Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling promotion and their product, and the legendary WCW/SMW/WWF Manager has hardly ever anything positive to say about that company.
Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega was recently interviewed on the ‘CEOGaming’ Twitch account, where he completely bashed Cornette and did not hold back at all.
Here’s what Omega had to say:
“I think Jim Cornette has backed himself up into a corner where, now, he’s found this group of extremely pathetic human beings who have no other thing to aspire to become, or no one to base their life off of, no one to listen to, no one to adhere to their commands.
And so, when it became a character that he could play as though he was still traveling up and down the strip in the indies, like back in the old days, now he’s got this group of people hanging off his every word. And all he has to do is sit and talk on a podcast with some other guy.
When he realized he could make money by delivering hateful speech, he backed himself into a corner, and now, if he wants to make rent, if he wants to buy his fancy McDonald’s double cheeseburger meal, he has to talk about the things that are going to get attention and a lot of the time, that’s going to be your’s truly.”
While there are some fans that side with Omega, a majority of the Old School Wrestling fans actually agree with Cornette’s harsh words regarding AEW.
Modern day professional wrestling (more strong style & high spot based, but less storytelling & selling) isn’t for everyone, but the same can be said about pretty much everything else, so there’s really no right or wrong, just a matter of what each person prefers to watch.
Kenny Omega has yet to return to AEW television after being out of action with multiple injuries since November 2021.
