Jim Cornette blasts Chris Jericho

During a recent episode of Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, the veteran explained that deathmatches are the opposite of what Chris Jericho thinks.

“No. Because I can understand it used to be. That’s everytime you got a black eye, you got busted open, you got some stitches, what’s a visual injury. What the old timers would say that it’s good for business be people will be able to see that right on TV. Can’t fake that,” Cornette said.

The former manager continued:

“The problem is when they have this garbage matches and it’s so obviously, visually, in front of you that this is some fake bunch of bulls*** they are co-operating with each other to do s*** that nobody would ever do, that doesn’t look real, you can see the cooperation and it is bogged down to human stunt show,” Cornette added.
