Jim Cornette Comments On Vince McMahon Potentially Returning To WWE

Vince McMahon WWE

Jim Cornette has added his voice to the discussion on Vince McMahon’s purported return.

Last week, it was reported that Vince McMahon wanted to return to WWE after retiring from the company’s day-to-day operations back in the summer. Rumors surrounding his return have led to many wrestlers and wrestling personalities voicing their opinions on the matter. And now Jim Cornette has given his thoughts as well.

On a recent episode of the Jim Cornette Experience, Cornette gave a thoughtful explanation of why Vince McMahon shouldn’t return, and reasoned that Vince would be bad from a creative perspective, a PR perspective, and an employee morale perspective:

“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. And I think it’s probably coming from what have we said? Vince wasn’t gonna not work,

Vince McMahon 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, you know, 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. In this case, Vince probably 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 in probably whatever point in time that 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.

Well, the questions to or the answers to both those questions have come when as soon as that article was released, and that statement from Vince was in there, the stock price went down a couple dollars. And secondly, guys want to go back and work for Triple H.

I think he’s brought back some that he probably has buyer’s remorse on bringing back now when he was rid of, but they want to come back and work for him and some more will follow and Regal and et cetera, we’ll talk about that.

They didn’t want to work for Vince because he had gone out of his mind and Max Dupri was an example of whatever the f*ck. So no, I think it’s bad creatively because neither programs are not setting the world on fire with the ratings either.

But at least they’re trying to do something to get out of that goofy funk that they were in the last little while with Vince. And so yeah, I don’t see a lot of the guys wanting [a Vince McMahon return].

But I think the guys that were there and having to buck up under all that stuff. I think no, I think Vince for PR, for creative and potentially just for hiring, he needs to be separated from that situation.”
