Jim Cornette has been one of AEW’s most outspoken critics since the company’s inception. He does enjoy some parts of the show, but a recent segment had him fuming.

On his latest Drive-Thru podcast, Cornette reviewed the segment involving MJF and Sting from last week’s Dynamite. The wrestling guru said that the confrontation didn’t work.

“Again, nobody trying to stop it, nobody trying to get in the ring. It went on long enough, and they’ve got Sting beaten and helpless wouldn’t some friend of his in the locker room, wouldn’t Tony Khan, the benevolent Tony Khan, says referees stop this carnage, or do we have security down at ringside?”

It is a well-established fact that Tony Khan likes to keep his on-screen role in AEW to a minimum. The likelihood of Khan involving himself directly in a Dynamite segment are slim.


Cornette believes that the fact that nobody helped Sting took away from the segment’s heat. He once again recalled the old days when fans would get so angry that they’d jump the guard rail.

“The people in the building could see other people trying and failing to prevent this sh*t from going on, and feel like they had to take it upon themselves. But the people here in the building see…[that] nobody’s trying to stop it. This is obviously a setup, sports entertainment happening, a skit, a play, and that’s why they can’t get legitimate heat out of it because there’s nothing to lose yourself in.”

There is no doubt that Jim Cornette will continue his anti-AEW crusade. His take on the segment does make some sense. Why was nobody in the AEW locker room there to help the Stinger?
