• “What is the appeal of this clown?” – Jim Cornette Rips WWE Wrestler

Former WWF Manager Jim Cornette is well known for being an ambassador of OLD SCHOOL Wrestling, including the 80s & 90s values of how professional wrestling should be portrayed.

In recent months, it certainly feels like Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling was signing quite a few of the non-heavyweight types of former WWE Superstars in addition to several cruiserweight wrestlers they already had on their roster.

On a recent episode of his weekly podcast, Cornette suggested that WWE NXT Wrestler Johnny Gargano would be a way better fit for the other promotion, because of his size.

Here’s what Cornette said:

“Get rid of Johnny Gargano. Can you imagine, he’s even worse than the cosplayers they have because he has no personality so can you imagine him trying to get on in old AEW. He certainly doesn’t have any friends over there, does he?

They got CM Punk, they got Adam Cole, they got Bryan Danielson, they wouldn’t take Gargano. What is the appeal of this clown? He’s 5-foot-6, 140 pounds, he’s got one facial expression, he and his wife do nothing but phony tongue-in-cheek promos where you can tell there’s nothing genuine about them, his matches are boring, he’s rotten.

He’s even small for AEW, isn’t he boring for AEW? I will cheer for Johnny Gargano going to AEW if the first thing he does is have a single match with Marko Stunt just to show everybody what Johnny Gargano’s real spot in wrestling really is.”
