Jim Cornette Talks Vince Russo/All In Event

Jim Cornette Takes A Shot At AEW For Running Down ECW

Pro wrestling legend Jim Cornette recently took to an episode of his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, where he talked about a variety of topics such as how ECW paved the way for a number of promotions 27 years ago, but AEW and the company’s CEO Tony Khan had Jack Perry run down ECW, a promotion that went out of business 22 years ago, during a segment on Dynamite a few weeks ago and instead of having some young talent in the segment, they had a veteran and legend like Jerry Lynn save the segment.

Jim Cornette said:

“What is the big demo? ‘Uncle Dave’s demo’ that he likes so much? [Brian – 18-49, the key demo] okay. ECW paved the way. What was it now? 27 years ago. So, nine years of that demo wasn’t born. It’s Tony being a 90s f***ing Attitude Era Monday Night Wars ECW garbage match mark. I like Jerry Lynn. That’s the thing. Is this really a hot button issue to inflame people’s emotions that Jack Perry is running down ECW? Not only another wrestling promotion, but a wrestling promotion that went out of business 22 years ago. And Jerry Lynn, who is a producer for AEW, the company that’s doing this television production, has to come out to take up for it.”

“Again, Jerry Lynn is a veteran, a coach there, a producer for whatever their work they’re allowed to do and coaching they’re allowed to do, but couldn’t it be that Jack Perry f*cking disrespected HOOK or any other young talent that Jerry Lynn has been mentoring and it was a personal issue? Rather than I’m going to defend a defunct promotion that the boss of this company has is mark for. Make it personal.”
