Jim Cornette has commented on claims that staying up all night partying with Tony Khan will help the stars of the company into a prime role.
Colten Gunn recently took issue with Jungle Boy Jack Perry’s back and forth with his brother Austin on social media as he suggested Perry’s success came down to who he spent time with as he wrote:
“i guess if we changed with the bucks and stayed up until 6 am with the boss we could get a spot too”
Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette aired his thoughts on the subject and thinks there must be some truth to it and alludes back to previous comments made by Big Swole following her own AEW exit:
“So now what’s happening over there is that since the floodgates have been opened, and everybody has just decided they can air their dirty laundry in public as far as who gets along in the locker room and who doesn’t. And it’s now pretty much an established fact from reports from first-person accounts from talent both there and that have departed.”
“Apparently, it’s easier to get booked on the big shows if you stay up all night with Tony Khan and do some of his drugs. These are the comments that have been made by people. Remember Big Swole said Tony Khan fired me after he smoke my weed, I thought we were friends. And now here is the [thing], and I love The Gunn Boys, you know I do, but here’s the preliminary guys at this point coming out and said ‘well, yeah, you know, if you stay up all night with the boss and dress in [The Young Bucks’] locker room, you’ll get booked on a pay-per-view. That’s why we’re sitting home. That’s why FTR is in Mexico or somewhere.”
