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 unhappy with Lethal’s booking in AEW.
With Ring of Honor releasing all of their talents in order to undergo a complete overhaul, Jay Lethal became a free agent. Lethal then shocked the world as he made his debut at AEW Full Gear.
Jim Cornett even previously stated that Tony Khan finally did something right by signing Jay Lethal to AEW. He even blasted WWE for letting AEW sign Jay Lethal in the first place. Unfortunately, Jay Lethal has been competing on AEW Dark all the time.
While speaking on his podcast, Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette blasted AEW for wasting Jay Lethal and potentially burying him in the process.
They bring Jay Lethal in, they beat, they announce his signing, we just never saw him again. But meanwhile, we have to suffer through 2point0 and Daniel Garcia every week. We got to see Orange Cassidy every week. But Jay Lethal, where is he? He has been hanging out with Will Hobbs. Why do you waste talent, why do you beat talent, why do you bury talent, why do you make talent go away?”
Ric Flair also previously said that Jay Lethal will never get his due in pro wrestling. It remains to be seen how Jay Lethal will be booked in AEW in the coming months.
