Jim Cornette Criticizes Tony Khan For Overpaying Undeserved Talent In AEW

What is one key change that Tony Khan needs to make to improve AEW?

If you ask Jim Cornette, the AEW President should release lesser-known talent and bring in bigger-named stars. Additionally, the legendary wrestling personality also thinks the pay scale for talent should be modified.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.

“So what [Tony Khan’s] going to have to do is what Cary Silkin had to do one time in ROH and have a come to Jesus meeting about whether he wants to have a real company, and free up some money to hire some new talent that the WWE seems to want to hand them on a silver platter. Get rid of some of the drek that makes his company look like the amateur hour, or whether he wants to keep running a Make A Wish and employ everybody because he doesn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. Then f*cking find a cure for cancer and contribute to some handicapped children! Don’t give bad indie outlaw wrestlers making five-times what they made because they are not worth it. This is not Make A Wish.”
