The Cult of Cornette did not have to wait long for their leader’s thoughts on CM Punk’s firing from AEW.
Jim Cornette, alongside co-host Brian Last, shared his thoughts on the controversial decision made by Tony Khan in a ‘Special Edition‘ of the “Drive-Thru” podcast.
As expected, Corny, in an hour-long verbal evisceration, went to town on Tony Khan, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, ‘Hangman’ Adam Page, Jack Perry, Dave Meltzer, Bryan Alvarez, and others. Here are some of the hits:
On Jack Perry’s ‘real glass, cry me a river’ comment aimed at Punk at All In: “So again, if Perry hadn’t f**king mouthed off and just gone and done his garbage pre-show match, then nothing would have happened. And if nothing would have happened, then Punk would be on the pay-per-view in the United Center in Chicago, and people wouldn’t be f**king all over Twitter and all over Chicago and all over the wrestling world going Tony Khan is a f**king d**kless p*ssy.”
On the upsides and downsides to CM Punk’s firing: “He’s (Tony Khan) brought this on himself, and I said at the top of the thing, sometimes the bad guys win. It’s actually it’s a win for everybody except the fans and Tony. Punk doesn’t have to put up with these f**king children anymore. He’s old, he’s tired, he’s hurting. He works with children. Well, you don’t have to work with children. You don’t have to get hurt anymore from working with the children. He’ll still be old. And maybe you’ll get better sleep. So he’s going to improve his situation.”
On how this ordeal affects AEW’s image and scope: “Now the Buckaroos and the camp Cucamonga and all of the friends and relatives know that they can do anything they want, they can wipe their feet, they can wipe their a** with Tony Khan. And it doesn’t matter what’s best for business. It’s just what they want. As a result, the talent that AEW will be signing here will be one of two categories. Either the Chris Jericho category, I’m going on the downhill side of my career, I’m gonna milk this billionaire for a ton of f**king money, or the guys who have no experience, want to be on TV, and they want to play with their friends, and they have no choice. But the guys who are in the prime of their career, the Cody’s have already left. Any young talent from the WWE that’s been used in any fashion that has any kind of name that has any kind of future in wrestling that could be potentially a draw for AEW, they don’t want to go there.
On the Young Bucks & Adam Page’s lack of professionalism: “Because the Buckaroos and I don’t know if Kenny is even in on this, I think he’s too much of a wishy-washy d**chebag even to be mean to people. But the Buckaroos and that Hangnail and all of their ilk, if you’re a bigger star than they are, if you’re a better talent than they are, well, there’s a lot of those. If you’re a more serious wrestler than they are, they don’t want you around because they don’t want anybody bringing any level of professionalism into that g*dd**n daycare center.”
