Jay Lethal is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling after competing for over twenty years now. He established himself as one of the stars of the X-Division in TNA and then became one of the top talents in ROH as well. It seems Jim Cornette is certainly happy to see Lethal in AEW.

With Ring of Honor releasing all of their talents in order to undergo a complete overhaul,  Jay Lethal became a free agent. It didn’t take him long to find a new home as Lethal made his debut at AEW Full Gear.

While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about AEW signing Jay Lethal. Cornette gave props to AEW for signing Lethal and said that Tony Khan finally did something right for once.

“So now it is AEW again. As people go over the pay-per-view and by the Jay Lethal? By the way, we really have to congratulate Tony Khan. You did something right for once. No, I do not need to congratulate Jay Lethal. He deserves it. Actually, he deserves better, but I congratulate Tony for figuring out that Jay Lethal was available and he could sign him up. He has been around, for 4 years Jay Lethal has been an untapped resource. He has been in other promotions, has been happy and contractually committed there. Despite that, I have always thought that he deserved a top spot where the most people could see what he can do while he still can so.”


Jay Lethal also said that AEW instantly felt like home to him. Lethal is also set to challenge Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship this week on AEW Dynamite. We will have to wait and see how Lethal will perform in his AEW in-ring debut.
