Jim Cornette continues to pull no punches when talking about AEW and especially Kenny Omega.
Longtime professional wrestling promoter and personality, Jim Cornette has decided to chime in on the reported backstage ‘meeting’ between former AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega and NJPW star, Will Ospreay.
It’s no secret that Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay aren’t the best of friends, however, when Ospreay had a recent run in All Elite Wrestling, Omega allegedly made the comment that if it were up to him, he wouldn’t have hired some people, while allegedly looking in Ospreay’s general direction.
When speaking on his ‘Jim Cornette Experience‘ podcast, Cornette offered up his thoughts on the matter:
“Yeah. Well, they were acting like, oh, that’s just a rumour that didn’t happen. No, that’s what happened. That’s why we said that’s what happened. And now a couple of weeks later, everybody’s catching up to us. These doubting Thomases and now, certain people sympathetic to the cause of twinkle toes and the rest of his merry band pranksters are going he was just kind of joking, or he [Kenny Omega] was looking at Will Ospreay because they got heat.
Does Will Ospreay constitute 8 out of 10 of the AEW roster? [Brian mentions that Ospreay is not a part of the AEW roster] Well, exactly. But no, they’re trying to deflect. If he was looking at Ospreay when he said that, then why didn’t he say I wouldn’t have hired all of you or there are certain of you I wouldn’t have hired while exchanging a pointed glance with Mr. Ostrich, his Japanese rival.
But no, he just made a blanket statement. Hey, if it was up to me, I wouldn’t hire eight out of 10 of you. Well, we got news for you twinkle toes. They’re probably quite a few of them that would say the same thing about you. They just can’t because you’re, you used to be an executive vice president of the company, and they’re waiting to see whether or not you will be again before they say ‘You f*cking dog face piece of sh*t don’t talk to me like that or I’ll slap the taste out of your mouth.’ That’s what they would have said to you, had you not been their boss when you said that.”
Kenny Omega, was of course, involved in the AEW All Out post-show brawl alongside CM Punk, Matt, and Nick Jackson, where all parties were stripped of their respective titles and subsequently suspended by company President, Tony Khan.
