Jim Cornette doesn’t mince words when it comes to his thoughts on Kota Ibushi.
On the July 19th episode of AEW Dynamite, Kota Ibushi reunited with former tag team partner Kenny Omega as he teamed with Omega, The Young Bucks, and Adam Page to score a victory over the Blackpool Combat Club, PAC, and Konosuke Takeshita in a brutal Blood and Guts match.
While many were happy to see the Golden Lovers reunite and become the Golden Elite, legendary wrestling manager Jim Cornette isn’t a fan of Ibushi. Like Kenny Omega, Ibushi has taken part in numerous comedic matches in DDT Pro Wrestling, and once wrestled Yoshihiko, a blow up doll.
Speaking on the latest episode of The Jim Cornette Experience, Cornette had this to say:
“For most of you going, ‘Who the f*ck is that?’ Kota ‘Idouchi’ is a fellow sex toy and child wrestler from the Orient, who is now a former best friend and tag team partner and member of the Golden Lovers pairing with Kenny. He’s another guy that a bunch of these mentally challenged individuals that think that this kind of wrestling gets over, just think is just swell. Ol’ Kota, ‘Idouchi’ himself. He’s one of the great ones.”
Continuing, Cornette lambasted Ibushi for his wrestling past, calling him a “nitwit piece of sh*t.”
“You can watch him on video on the Internet wrestling sex dolls, six-year-old children, while they have matches where they all dress up as I Dream of Jeannie, and bunches of them just stand around and stick their fingers up other guys asses over and over in a circle. It’s amazing the talent that this nitwit piece of sh*t possesses.”
