Jim Cornette Calls AEW & ROH Crossover An ‘Infestation’ AEW

Jim Cornette has cast his critical eye over the All Elite Wrestling and Ring of Honor crossover, revealing that he isn’t happy with what he sees.

Since Tony Khan announced his acquisition of ROH in March, ROH has held two pay-per-views, Supercard of Honor in April, and Death Before Dishonor in July.

With ROH yet to secure a TV deal under Tony Khan, the promotion’s storylines and championships are often featured on AEW TV.

Speaking on The Jim Cornette Experience, Cornette offered Tony Khan some advice that he’d been given forty years ago that is still relevant today, saying:

“Establish what you’re doing, don’t assume everybody already knows! That was a memo we got from Bill Watts 40 years ago. Everyone – in quotation marks – knows everything, but if you’re in a stipulation match: explain it.

“If your promo is about someone, remember what you did in the town last time and talk about it. Make things make sense, people don’t just appear and disappear!”

Cornette was critical of the number of wrestlers and championships appearing on AEW programming. Explaining why he’d describe the crossover as an infestation, Cornette said:

“Infestation is appropriate, not because any of the Ring of Honor guys are cockroaches, but because by the time you see one or two, there’s a bunch more lurking around the corner! And belts everywhere!”

With more ROH events in the pipeline and potential for a TV show, it’ll be interesting to see if Tony Khan listens takes these criticisms on board.

ROH’s next pay-per-view, Final Battle, will take place on December 10.
