Jim Cornette: We’re back in a WWE vs AEW promotional war

Last updated

Outspoken pro wrestling commentator Jim Cornette recently discussed Kevin Owens re-signing with WWE for a reportedly massive amount.

Speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Cornette stated that the amount Owens was paid proves that there is a promotional war between AEW and WWE.

‘I’m not trying to knock him here, I’ve always said that Kevin Steen [Owens] could work and he could talk, it’s how he has been booked, which is not his fault” Cornette began.

“Kevin Steen is getting $2-3 million a year and that indicates 2 things. 1) There is a shortage of talent to begin with. 2) The WWE is embarrassed by just having difference-makers handed over on a silver platter to the other side. 3) We are back in a promotional war” Cornette added.
