Jim Cornette Says “You Cannot Stop Vince McMahon”

Vince McMahon

Wrestling veteran Jim Cornette has commented on the reports that Vince McMahon wants to return to WWE and says it’s impossible to stop the ex-Chairman.

A recent report from The Wall Street Journal shed light on new claims for damages made against Vince McMahon by women who allege they were sexually assaulted, and in one case raped, by the former WWE boss.

That report also indicated that Vince McMahon wanted to return to WWE after announcing his retirement in July 2022. McMahon is noted to believe that he received bad advice from those close to him to step away and believed that accusations made against him at that time would blow over.

Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette gave his take on the situation and says he believes Vince McMahon will be upset with the people closest to him as that’s where he believes the advice to step down was coming from:

“Well, one would think the advice was coming from inside the house. But I don’t think that was the only place that advice was coming from. He probably had some people that would give him the same advice, he wouldn’t blame them as much as people close to him. That’s who he would blame for the advice because they should have known better, but that’s the Vince that I knew and worked with. Deny, deny, deny, do what you want to do, it’s all gonna blow over, move on or whatever the f*ck however you want to describe that.”

“Vince wasn’t gonna not work, Vince has been working on something he’s probably been working on figuring out how to get back to work. But he’s been working on something, he has been occupying his time with something. And or whether it’s dwelling on what happened, because Jesus Christ, sh*t does blow over. At various points, a lot of people have been the worst person in the world and cancelled and nobody wants to hear from them again. And then suddenly they’re back doing commercials or whatever.”

“But you know, in this case, Vince is probably, he didn’t think that, as we saw from the first couple of appearances he did on television, he thought it was gonna blow over, he wasn’t gonna put it over. Then someone got to him with how serious it was, and it is going to be bad if something doesn’t happen, and he acquiesced to it. And at probably whatever point in time after that, however quickly it was that he started getting bored, and or ruminating about it. And now he wants something to f*cking do. And you cannot stop Vince McMahon, like I said, from either working or working on a way to start working again.”
