Jim Cornette Feels Red Velvet Should have Stayed Down After Botched Dive

Jun 10, 2021 - by James Walsh

Last week on AEW Friday Night Dynamite, Red Velvet got the biggest win of her career defeating former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion The Bunny in somewhat convincing form. But, in spite of the signature victory, everyone was talking about a suicide dive she did through the ropes that folded her up awkwardly. It appeared as though she tried to shift in mid air and didn’t quite make it. But, instead of staying down, she popped back up. Red Velvet no sold the injury though revealed on Twitter later that she was OK and not seriously injured by her flub.

Legendary wrestling personality Jim Cornette feels Velvet should have stayed downand that if the management of AEW was on the ball, they would have instructed her to because they could create her as a star more by creating concern for her well being after a flub that bad rather than her winning a match not remembered because the flub outshined the outcome.

    Can anyone really argue otherwise?

    Because AEW management is inexperienced

    Just watched the dive. She didn’t even land that bad, just overshot and landed on her back. Don’t see the problem. Suicide dives often look pretty bad. Sasha Banks and Shotzi Blackheart hit dives like that all the time. It’s fine.

    Very few performers can even do them without them looking like garbage…..they need to go back to a once in a blue moon spot.

    Like the dives onto a group of guys outside the ring. Tired of seeing them all NOT fighting and locking arms while the dude is getting ready. If you can’t do it convincingly then don’t do it.
