Jim Cornette is not a man famous for pulling any punches, especially when it comes to his criticism of Tony Khan and AEW.
Therefore, it’s surprising to hear that Cornette is actually congratulating Tony on something, even if it’s in the most Jim Cornette way possible.
AEW announced the signing of Jay Lethal over the weekend, a decision praised by Cornette on the Jim Cornette Experience. He said:
“By the way, we really have to congratulate Tony Khan. You did something right for once. No, I do not need to congratulate Jay Lethal. He deserves it. Actually, he deserves better, but I congratulate Tony for figuring out that Jay Lethal was available and he could sign him up. He has been around, for 4 years Jay Lethal has been an untapped resource. He has been in other promotions, has been happy and contractually committed there. Despite that, I have always thought that he deserved a top spot where the most people could see what he can do while he still can so.”
Lethal will be in action in an AEW ring for the first time tonight on AEW Dynamite, challenging TNT Champion Sammy Guevara.
