Jim Cornette is one of the most well-known personalities in the professional wrestling industry. He has worked with or for some of the most top promotions in the world. Even though he is so popular, he has made a few mistakes along the way.
He has also openly criticized some promotions, which has not helped him. Jim Ross currently works for All Elite Wrestling as a Senior Advisor. He is a legendary professional wrestling commentator as well, and also does commentary for AEW.
Jim Ross knows Jim Cornette very well. Ross spoke about Jim on his podcast. Ross was asked whether Jim would actually be given a chance in AEW even though he has criticized AEW. Jim still disparages AEW and regularly speaks against him.
"Cornette would probably curse me for even saying it, but I don't think he's on the top of the recruiting list right now," Ross noted. "We're still friends, but we've never really agreed on all kinds of things.
He's the kind of guy that very rarely has a compromising moment, he's very set in his ways he knows what he likes, he knows how wrestling in his view should be positioned. I'm not disagreeing with that, but sometimes the message gets overgeneralized.
We know what we have, we know what we need”. “I think Cornette is pointing out the obvious. He's not providing any information that's new or revolutionary. There are things we need to do,”
