Jim Cornette Weighs In on Chris Jericho/NBA Twitter Issues

Last updated

Former WCW, TNA and WWE personality Jim Cornette recently discussed the drama that surrounded Chris Jericho on a recent episode of AEW Dynamite.

The December 23rd episode of Dynamite would follow an NBA game that went into overtime. With the game running over, there were some NBA fans who decided to stick with AEW Dynamite and watch the first match. That first bout would involve Chris Jericho and MJF, with fans on ‘NBA Twitter’ commenting on Jericho’s size.

‘Why is anybody surprised?’ Jim Cornette would begin on the Drive Thru podcast. ‘This is another thing that I’ve been saying for a long, long time. Whether you like it or not. Chris Jericho is the biggest mainstream name recognition star in AEW, specifically because of his years and years spent with the WWE. That was when their ratings were much higher than they are now.’

‘It’s not because he had a match at the Tokyo Dome a couple of years ago’ Cornette would continue. ‘It’s not because he’s with AEW now. It’s not because he was with WCW in 1998, it’s because he was a big star on WWE TV for a significant period of time; when they were doing much better ratings themselves than they are now. That’s just math and common sense.’
