The one thing from Fyter Fest that Jim Cornette definitely liked

Fite TV’s Twitter

If you’ve followed along with the pro wrestling business on the internet, you know that legendary manager/booker Jim Cornette has opinions. And he shares them freely and colorfully.

All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice-Presidents Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks are frequent targets of the cantankerous Kentuckian’s anger, so it’s no surprise he wasn’t a big fan of last Saturday’s Fyter Fest show. On Twitter, the Buy-In pre-show triggered such a meltdown, he hasn’t been able to make it through the main card.

But he definitely followed along with the post-show media scrum. And he did not approve of Nick Jackson’s response to the controversial Shawn Spears/Cody Rhodes chair shot:

But he’s a big fan of how fellow MLW performer MJF handled the same issue, and everything else during his post-Fyter Fest interview time:

Just like it’s no surprise AEW seems to be grooming Maxwell Jacob Friedman for their top heel spot, it’s even less of a surprise Corny loves the kid. As the entire post-show video from Chris Van Vliet demonstrates, MJF pretty much never breaks character. And there’s not much the 23 year old won’t say to make people hate him.

Sound like anyone?
