CONTROVERSIAL name laughs off offer to appear at AEW Dynamite

Last updated

In a recent turn of events that has the wrestling community buzzing, Jim Cornette, a name synonymous with controversy in the pro-wrestling world, has declined an offer to appear at AEW Dynamite.

The offer, seemingly extended by Jeff Jarrett, was met with a response that was indicative of Cornette’s longstanding views on AEW.

Jim Cornette, a legendary figure in the wrestling industry, has been openly critical of AEW in the past. His critiques, which are often voiced on his podcasts, have not always sat well with AEW enthusiasts and officials.

This backdrop makes the recent invitation from Jeff Jarrett, expressing his desire to have Cornette on AEW Dynamite, all the more intriguing.

AEW Dynamite: The Offer and the Rejection

The invitation appeared to be extended as AEW prepared to present a live episode of Dynamite at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

Jeff Jarrett stated, “I would love to have Corny. I’d love to have him.” However, Cornette’s response was laced with his trademark ‘old man yells at cloud’ energy.

He mentioned his attempt to make it to the show but highlighted the challenge of finding someone to split the ‘two for one’ ticket deal that Tony Khan’s company is offering.

Cornette quipped on Twitter/X, “I appreciate the invitation from @RealJeffJarrett to attend the @AEW TV taping in Louisville tomorrow–I tried hard to make it work, but I couldn’t find another person in town going so we could split the 2 for 1 ticket offer. But maybe they can find another ratings ploy in time.”

The Cult of Cornette

While Jim Cornette might not be gracing AEW Dynamite with his presence, his vast fanbase, often referred to as the ‘Cult of Cornette’, might still make their presence felt.

These ardent followers are known to passionately support Cornette’s views and might turn up to enjoy the show in their unique way.

AEW’s Track Record with Legends

AEW has a history of bringing in legendary names from the wrestling world. While many have graced the AEW ring, it seems Jim Cornette won’t be joining that list anytime soon.

Fans who might be disappointed with this development can still catch Cornette’s thoughts on Tony Khan’s company via his podcasts (if you’re into that).
