Jim Cornette Responds To Kenny Omega’s Accusations

Kenny Omega Jim Cornette

Wrestling icon Jim Cornette has fired back as only he can at accusations from Kenny Omega that he makes his living using “hateful speech.”

Former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega recently hit out at Jim Cornette during a Twitch stream with CEO Gaming. Among other things, Omega took issue with Cornette making his living by talking about him:

“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 yours truly.”

Not one to take accusations like that lying down, speaking on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the lynchpin of Camp Cornette fired back at Omega and the idea that he has to talk about the Canadian star to remain relevant:

“I think these insufferable douchebags are so in love with the smell of their own farts, so head so far up their own asses, that they genuinely believe that they’re big stars in some capacity. And that if anybody talks about them, they do it because those people that are talking about them want their attention or want attention. I got news for you, first of all, as far as the pathetic people, Twinkle Toes, here’s the facts. Sit down, Mr. Peabody, and let me give you the deal here.”

“I’m not alone in my opinion of you. I will explain in minute granular detail momentarily why I dislike almost everything about you, the only things that I don’t dislike are the things I haven’t discovered yet. But to think that I’m alone in thinking that you are a joke jackoff is ridiculous.”

“[…] You ruined a pastime, a hobby, an interest and entertainment that a lot of us had and some of us [had] professionally, for years and years and decades and decades, because it’s just so silly and phoney and stupid and illogical. And you’ve made wrestling something to be laughed at and you admit that it should be fun, we should all laugh and have fun at the silliness.”

“Well, guess who’s laughing now Twinkle Toes? Because I’ve got 75 to 80% of the wrestling fans that loved wrestling and don’t watch it anymore because people like you on my side. And you’ve got the remaining people that will eat that Elmers glue and thank you for the ice cream – the kind of people who like that kind of thing. So I think the roles are reversed here. Because when you talk about me I trend you don’t trend.”

Jim Cornette then went after Omega’s recognition on American television and says it pales into comparison to his own:

“[…] So Kenny, you’ve been on TV in this country for three years. Pffttt! So if we want to compare relevance and star power and mainstream recognition, I’ve been on TV in this country most of the time for the past 40 years, you’ve been on TV in this country for three years, I’ve spent more time in a f*cking wrestling locker room than you’ve been alive.”

“I think if we actually did the math, we can probably verify that I’ve been in more locker rooms than at least time that he spent either awake or asleep. So I hate to break it to you Harpo, but I ain’t trying to be a star off of you. You’re trying to do some damage control with me and discredit me, because I just have the platform to bring up what everybody can already see about you.”

“You’re an insufferable tw*t, a douchebag and a sh*tty wrestler is what you are. So embrace it, embrace it! And because that’s what your friends are, too, they should embrace that as well. The problem is, they act like insufferable douchebags on television as heels, but they act like phoney insufferable douchebags on TV. If they just act naturally and be the real insufferable douchebags they might get some f*cking heat.”
