“He Should Have Fired Him Before” – Jim Cornette On Andrade El Idolo

Andrade El Idolo

AEW President Tony Khan should have fired Andrade El Idolo before his current controversy occurred according to Jim Cornette.

Ahead of the October 5th episode of AEW Dynamite, there was a confrontation backstage between Andrade El Idolo and Sammy Guevara.

The tension stemmed from Andrade claiming in an interview that Guevara complained that he had been hit too hard during a match between the pair. In the hours after the interview dropped the pair exchanged messages on social media which only served to highlight the very real issues between them.

It has now emerged that both men were spoken to on Tuesday (October 4th) about the problems, and both confirmed that there would be no issues moving forward. However, a fight broke out which saw Andrade throw punches at his rival, who didn’t fight back. As a result of the incident, Andrade was sent home.

Speaking on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the legendary wrestling manager says that he thinks Tony Khan needs to clear decks in AEW more often and that Andrade El Idolo should have been booted from the company before now:

“He [Tony Khan] should have fired him [Andrade] before. I can’t believe that once a year, at least, Tony has not sat down and looked at his talent roster and looked at the contributions or lack thereof that some were making, and look at the bloated nature of the nobodies that he just has everywhere and look at the people that, [they] couldn’t sell pussy on a troop train much less goddamn have a great wrestling match.”

“And it’s just an indie darling that was of the moment and somebody got you know, f*cking hysterical and signed him up and clear everybody out once a year. Go up and down your entire roster contracts coming up. People on per nights, who do we f*cking need? Who do we not need? Who’s worked out? Who’s just f*cking hanging around and who’s not worth a sh*t?”

“Okay, these contracts they’re going to be due in six months, but I shouldn’t have signed them to begin with. So these guys are the ones that are going to be putting everybody over trying to get some other people f*cking over whatever. But he hasn’t done housecleaning in three years. A couple of the people that really f*cked up bad like that f*cking Jimmy Havoc and [Joey Janela] and whatever they were allowed to matriculate out.”
