Jim Cornette Slams WWE For Letting Jay Lethal Sign With AEW

Jim Cornette is not one to hold his opinion when it comes to the wrestling business. He has been very critical of both the AEW and WWE products in positive and negative ways.

Most recently Jim Cornette has lashed out at WWE’s higher-ups for not bringing in Jay Lethal and letting AEW sign another big name.

While speaking on the Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette gave huge props to AEW for signing Jay Lethal. Cornette then proceeded to blast WWE for letting AEW sign someone with the caliber of Lethal instead of signing him themselves.

“So AEW got another one here. Again and the WWE, considering the state of their talent roster – they did not go for Jay Lethal, they do not go for the Briscoe’s, or they do not go for one or two others. Once again the WWE let the opposition take all the f****** wrestlers that the fans, especially the most dedicated fans – are sympathetic to. This is because they have either been fired, or their companies let them go, or they gone out of business or whatever.”

Cornette then would go on to state that all the names All Elite Wrestling has brought in recent times are yielding more success than they ever had anywhere else. Jim Cornette believes fans are also sympathetic to these stars, given how their stint ended with previous promotions.

Jay Lethal will challenge Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship on tonight’s AEW Dynamite.
