Wrestling legend Jim Cornette has given his opinions on WWE firing stars and employees after a short amount of time after they upend their lives and relocate.
Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette gave his forthright views on recent short-term employment offered by WWE to the likes of Eric Bischoff, Paul Heyman, and Jeff Jarrett and thinks that when those taking jobs agree to move – sometimes across the country – they should have more protection. Cornette also mentioned Taya Valkyrie who wrestled a handful of times in NXT during her nine-month stint in the company:
“So they’re getting places to live, they’re moving their possessions up, at least what you would need to live there part-time. They’re rearranging their other lives and schedules and three months later, see ya! Are these the same thing they were doing to the developmental talent when they flew f*cking, or moved poor Taya Valkyrie down there to Florida and then ‘We changed our mind, f*ck you.’”
“There should be, there ought to be by God, there better be some type of minimum agreement in these job offers where if you have to engage in any f*cking aggravation and upheaval in your life, we guarantee you, because we’ve asked you to do this, then unless you f*ck up in some kind of way and end up naked and drunk out on East Main Street in Stamford against the light. You get a year or whatever. It’s ridiculous.”
Jim Cornette also recently gave his thoughts on Johnny Gargano’s surprise return to WWE on Monday Night Raw.
