Jim Cornette Blasts AEW Full Gear Match As “Unwatchable”

Jim Cornette

Jim Cornette has torn into a match from AEW Full Gear that he was far from a fan of, claiming it was full of “middle school cheerleading routines.”

The Elite trio of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks made their hotly anticipated return to AEW at Full Gear where they challenged Death Triangle for the AEW Trios Championship. The Elite originally won the title at All Out but were stripped of the gold as a result of their part in the alleged backstage fight that took place after the show involving CM Punk.

To the surprise of many, Death Triangle held onto their gold when Rey Fenix finally succumbed to Pac’s wishes and used a hammer to the head of Omega to pick up the win. The two teams will now take part in a best-of-seven series with the Trios Titles on the line.

Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette outlined all of the many, many issues he had with The Elite’s return at Full Gear and their match with Death Triangle:

“But nevertheless, speaking of insufferable douchebags, let’s move on to this match. They had the dramatic milk of the EVP’s music and then a video on the screen of sh*t they had written about themselves, and they’re wayward sons, and they will carry on. In their minds and in the universe of their small little clique of stooges and sycophants, [Brandon Cutler, Michael Nakazawa, and Don Callis], these three think that they’re the sh*t, they think that they are f*cking superstars.”

“And then Tony has dipped in his pocket again, here comes the opening strings of Carry On My Wayward Son by Kansas, and they say that I’m behind the times on my musical taste. Tony had to pony up to f*cking Kansas, and or their record company, to indulge these f*cking tw*ts, their Goddamn wayward son entrance, and their big return. And so here they come, the guys who built the company and the ones whose pettiness and self-indulgent masturbatory fantasies of themselves are going to tear it down. And the corpse referee was in charge of the action, it had all the ingredients of an indie-rific spectacle.”

“The fans that were there love those f*cking dorks, and then the bell rang. And we already knew what it was going to be. And all six of these guys only ever have one match and they do the same sh*t every time. And to be honest, if I stopped to break down how stupid and phoney each of these middle school cheerleading routines were, it would take three hours, people would be bored.”

“[…] I will say it was unwatchable to anybody that’s ever been a fan of pro-wrestling or considered themselves a professional in this industry. And then Felix hit [Omega] in the head with a hammer and beat him 123. Did I miss any nuances of this contest?”
