“Who Convinced That Guy That He Is That Good” – Jim Cornette Slams Top AEW Star

Jim Cornette

Jim Cornette hasn’t sugar-coated a wrestling opinion since he broke into the industry when he was just 14 years old, and he shows no sign of changing that approach.

On the May 10th episode of AEW Dynamite, the rivalry between Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega hit another flash point as they met in a Steel Cage Match in the main event. The two men have been battling on and off since Moxley arrived in the company back in 2019.

The rivalry has been reignited in recent months as The Elite has found themselves at odds with the Blackpool Combat Club. Ahed of the match on Dynamite, Moxley took part in an interview where he described the rivalry as the “apex of professional wrestling” and discussed his role with Omega at the top of the company.

Speaking on the latest episode of the Jim Cornette Experience, the legendary manager let the world know that he doesn’t agree with Moxley’s assessment of his work. Cornette said that even if Moxley is as good as he says he is, as a heel he shouldn’t be making comments such as those in the interview.

“Who has convinced this guy that he is that good? I mean, I could see some people with lower standards going, ‘Ah, he’s alright,’ but how could anybody have convinced him that he is this big megastar, and this great wrestler, and this incredible box office attraction? Who has told him that, and how can we get them a phone call with BetterHelp?

Even if you think that you are that good, who talks like that unless you’re a heel in gimmick? Who actually comes out, ‘Oh real I’m the greatest thing?’ I mean, he went to rehab. At some point, don’t they sit you down and make you look at yourself realistically and what your strengths, weaknesses, good points, faults, whatever, are? How can he legitimately believe? How can he look in the mirror? How can he watch himself on video tape?

Does he not see that ridiculously underdeveloped body? The pale flesh, the lack of f*cking hair on the top of his head, the f*cking lack of quality work, the lack of psychology, the f*cking lack of bladesmanship?

I’m glad that he didn’t decide to become the next sleight of hand artist. F*cking Criss Angel has nothing to worry about, but what is it that he thinks that he does well? ‘Cause we can’t find it.”

Jim Cornette Claimed AEW Should Fire Jon Moxley

This is far from the first time that Moxley has come under fire from Jim Cornette. In the aftermath of Moxley’s Texas Death Match with Adam Page at AEW Revolution, Cornette said that Moxley needs a “mental evaluation,” before suggesting that he should be fired.
