Matt Hardy Fires Back At Jim Cornette

Matt Hardy

It looks as though Matt Hardy may have relit the fuse in his argument with Jim Cornette, questioning why anyone would think the way Cornette does about some situations.

It was over the course of the last week when Matt Hardy and Jim Cornette became embroiled in a bitter argument across social media. It stemmed back to Hardy’s comments about there being a “toxic Cornette cult” and led to Cornette and his podcast co-host Brian Last to quickly fire back in what became an extremely heated exchange.

Whilst the matter could have come to a head, Matt Hardy has now discussed it on his Extreme Life podcast, and how Cornette threw away a friendship with himself and Chris Jericho over the Stadium Stampede match they were involved in.

We were down there, we did that Stadium Stampede over the course of the night before, and they edited it all morning and they worked on it. Jim Cornette had the audacity to say because Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho were involved in the Stadium Stampede match I can no longer be their friend.

Interesting, I can no longer be their friend because they’re in a wrestling match. I’m their friend and I like them as human beings and I thought they both had potential and I wanted to see them excel and do well in pro wrestling, but now because they’re doing a pro wrestling match that isn’t my cup of tea I can no longer be friends with them. Is this real life? Who says that? Who thinks like that?

The former multi-time Tag Team Champion also commented on how he feels there are much better ways to handle things than the insults which were thrown at him.

Even if you have an issue or a problem with someone, there is a way to address those things without insulting them or biting their head off. That’s what’s very important and that’s, obviously, what kind of started this instance this week with me. I don’t wanna be a podcast that says negative things about people. Like, I don’t wanna be a podcast that wishes injury upon other wrestlers that I don’t like, or bad things upon wrestlers that I don’t like. I want to be a positive, productive, inspirational podcast.

Any thoughts that this may have come to a conclusion can be ignored, as you can fully expect Jim Cornette to respond to these comments in the not too distant future.
