Jim Cornette has been critical of the six-man tag team match on AEW Dynamite and singled out former AEW Champion Jon Moxley for blame.
On the 29th of September edition of AEW Dynamite Jon Moxley teamed with Eddie Kingston and Darby Allin to face the team of former NXT Superstar Anthony Greene and Bear Country. In a reasonably one-sided match, Moxley and co. made short work of their opponents, even giving Greene to Sting after the match so the WWE Hall Of Famer could nail him with the Scorpion Death Drop.
While the fans in Rochester, NY seemed entertained by the goings-on, Jim Cornette was less than impressed as he explained on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast:
“Moxley, he’s the one to blame here. He can’t even have a match with job guys. They jump-started a match with job guys on the floor, and while Darby Allin and Anthony Greene were in the ring trying to do wrestling spots, everybody else was fighting on the floor with the referee paying no attention to what was going on on the floor. The cameras weren’t even shooting it. Just every once in a while, the shooting was going on in the ring, you see somebody throwing punches on the other side. So, the babyfaces won this obviously, and then they throw Anthony Greene to Sting, and he gives the Scorpion Death Drop.”
“It was an excuse to put the babyface on the show, but why do you have to have six-way chaos in a match with job guys? It looks like every other f*cking match. He’s incapable, Moxley, of having any other kind of match whatsoever. So, you know, it wasn’t horrible because there was names, but it wasn’t a good match.”
On the upcoming edition on the 6th of October in Philadelphia, PA, Jon Moxley will be part of the Casino Ladder Match with the winner earning a future AEW World Championship shot against Kenny Omega.
