Jim Cornette Says Tony Khan Is His Booker Of The Year

Jim Cornette

Jim Cornette has named his wrestling booker of the year picking AEW President Tony Khan despite what he sees as the company’s shortcomings.

The outspoken Cornette is seen by some as overly critical of the AEW product however in recent weeks the legendary manager has been complimentary about segments including the likes of former WWE Champions Bryan Danielson and CM Punk.

Speaking on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, The Louisville Lip named his booker of the year, a name that might come as a surprise to some but says he has to give it to Tony Khan because he’s not feeding stars scripts and micromanaging to the degree that people perceive to be the norm in WWE:

“Tony Khan is the booker of the year. Let’s face it, he is writing sh*t down that he would get a tickle out of seeing, then he is giving it to the talent and they are doing what they can to make it palatable.”

“That’s why the talented guys’ segments are great and the outlaw goofs are sh*t because they don’t know any better. But they are not having someone explain to them how to say things, why, etc. That’s what you have with the segment by segment thing. Some stand on their own merits and some fall on their own merits.”

Jim Cornette has also recently discussed NXT 2.0 star Bron Breakker and how long he thinks it will be before the second-generation star is WWE Champion.
