Jim Cornette has never been short of an opinion or two on Kenny Omega and now Omega has fired back at Cornette for his “hateful speech.”
The former manager of The Midnight Express delivers two podcasts every week where he discusses the good and the bad as he sees it from the world of pro wrestling.
Cornette has long been critical of former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, taking particular issue with Omega’s comedy antics as part of DDT Pro which included Omega wrestling a blow-up doll.
“I think Jim Cornette has backed himself up into a corner where, now, he’s found this group of extremely pathetic human beings who have no other thing to aspire to become or no one to base their life off of, no one to listen to, no one to adhere to their commands.”
“And so, when it became a character that he could play as though he was still traveling up and down the strip in the indies, like back in the old days, now he’s got this group of people hanging off his every word. And all he has to do is sit and talk on a podcast with some other guy.”
“When he realized he could make money by delivering hateful speech, he backed himself into a corner, and now, if he wants to make rent, if he wants to buy his fancy McDonald’s double cheeseburger meal, he has to talk about the things that are going to get attention and a lot of the time, that’s going to be yours truly.”
Kenny Omega also claimed that Cornette’s words have an effect on the AEW locker room, saying that the stars of the company try to remain safe:
“That seeps into our locker room too. Yeah, it does. Everyone is so afraid of the f*cking cult of Cornette army and people that have like, you know, anti-AEW sites that they want to be — they want to do whatever the f*ck they can to stay safe.”
