Jim Cornette Thinks The Elite Never Wanted CM Punk In AEW


Jim Cornette gave his thoughts on various topics on his Jim Cornette Experience.

During it, Cornette spoke about his belief that The Elite trio of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks never wanted CM Punk in the company to begin with. 

This hot take is after the All Out brawl between them. Specifically, he noted Punk as having “exposed them” as his logic behind this:

“They didn’t want Punk there from the start. I’m talking about the hardly boys [The Young Bucks] and old twinkle toes [Kenny Omega] because he exposed them. These guys he exposed for their limited audience.”

“He [Tony Khan] thought that he could f*cking put together a national wrestling promotion on their [The Elite] backs. When he found out those backs weren’t wide enough to carry it, he had to start bringing in stars. They got somebody [who] was doing numbers.

And they were jealous of it because not only was he [Punk] doing bigger numbers than they were, but he was doing it with wrestling instead of their brand of convoluted western swing dancing. So those three guys they needed Punk out of there because he was exposing the whole myth of The Elite as this massive powerful force around wrestling.”
