Kenny Omega is in the headlines for New Japan as the winner of their new IWGP United States title and as he attempts to make history again in G1 Climax (in 2016 he was the first gaijin, or non-Japanese, wrestler to ever win the prestigious tournament).
So Jim Cornette conveniently remembered how mad Omega’s past as a comedy worker makes him.
Well, a fan did ask the legendary manager/promoter/booker why he hates Kenny, so his Twitter tirade from earlier today (July 20) wasn’t totally out of the blue. And all of his Tweets are reply/re-Tweets of arguments fans pose to him, so he’s got the age old cover that he was “working the marks”.
But even for a something that starts off with a mention of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, things get out-of-hand...
Makes my day a little brighter when I can remind an asshole who wrestled a blowup doll in front of fans that he sucks. Also fuck him. Thanks https://t.co/QRdrPbUbvl— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) July 20, 2017
When a fan asked why he tagged Omega in his Tweet (relevant later), Corny explains:
Because I want this dipshit to know exactly what I say about him so there's no misunderstanding. He should not be allowed in our business. https://t.co/eZXOSxX9f2— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) July 20, 2017
It wasn’t all about The Cleaner. Someone brought his Elite buddies, and frequent Cornette targets The Young Bucks into the convo (with a dumb insult), so they got some, too...
The Rock N Roll Express couldn't lace the Bucks boots on their best day— Nick (@ShortOfDaybreak) July 20, 2017
That's because it's the job of the curtain jerkers to lace the main eventer's boots, not the other way around. https://t.co/cr97ZNBaEH— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) July 20, 2017
And Dave Meltzer was coincidentally talking up a past Omega partner, Kota Ibushi, so Dahmer was joined by none other than Adolf Hitler as a Cornette analogy!
This man just set Sapporo's gate record. Some call this amazing talent, some call it killing the business. One does not compute. https://t.co/R0HvHGWfCw— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) July 20, 2017
I don't really care if Adolf Hitler was an amazingly talented painter, he should get no compliments. These fucks Omega, Ibushi, same thing. https://t.co/5wlzeNAnbi— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) July 20, 2017
Kenny himself tipped his hat to Jim the Worker, but asked a favor:
I like you, Jim, but if you want to bury me, please don't tag me in it. We just started the G1 and I can't have this polluting my TL. Thanks— Kenny Omega (@KennyOmegamanX) July 20, 2017
But would not be responded to in the same respectful tone:
More of your idiot fans needed slapped down. You polluted my eyeballs w/your blowup doll match. BTW how's the lil' girl you couldn't beat? https://t.co/fNHj4jLEmx— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) July 20, 2017
Mission accomplished, as Cornette’s got us talking about him and at least some people who disagree with him pissed off!
Dammit! The fans of the video game, grade school wrestlers are crying in butthurtedness at me & I'm too busy to enjoy tasting their tears!— Jim Cornette (@TheJimCornette) July 20, 2017
Matt Jackson is sarcastically impressed:
Cool online character, Jim! You're making us all angry all over again! Good heel heat, you're killing it!— The Young Bucks (@MattJackson13) July 20, 2017
There’s lots more in his timeline, if you’re interested. I’m sure he’d love a follow.
