Jim Cornette pays attention to AEW, because it gives him something to talk about every week on his podcasts. He also realizes that Lio Rush signed with Tony Khan’s company and he also has the tendency to retire every so often.
During his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, he went into a bit of a rant about Lio Rush. He dragged the Man of the Hour’s size and called him out for retiring a lot. Then Cornette took a stab at his many nicknames and gimmicks. It doesn’t sound like he’s too much of a fan.
“He has retired at least twice right from wrestling. Every time he gets fired, or he gets hurt, he retires. Now he is back signed with another company. It’s not like there’s been popular demand or an outcry from the populace of the country. But he’s unretired more than Terry Funk did. And now, apparently, he’s rich, he’s made money on investments, he’s made money on leveraged buyouts and he’s now Leveraged Buyout Rush, L.B.O Rush. So we are expected to believe that this mental case is the Wolf of Wall Street. If they had made him a manager, he would have been the hottest thing in the world, but he insists on wrestling and it’s embarrassing because he’s the size of a small child.”
Lio Rush is just getting started in All Elite Wrestling. Jim Cornette will also likely have plenty more to say about him in the process. Rush is a talented performer so there could always be a slim possibility that he might turn Cornette around eventually.
