Jim Cornette on Adam Cole

Nov 2, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

The legendary Jim Cornette took to Twitter today to call out AEW star Adam Cole.

Cornette’s tweet came after Cole made a post about how he’s not even in his prime yet.

“I’ve had a great 13 year career. I’m 32 years old… The scary part is I’m not even in my prime yet… Not scary for me…scary for you. #AdamColeBayBay,” Cole wrote.

Cornette responded and knocked Cole’s time with AEW so far, noting that he left the big time, WWE, to join The Lollipop Guild, in AEW.

“Sad to say, Adam, you should have tweeted this before you left the big time and joined the Lollipop Guild. Every match you spend joking around with and getting kissed by juvenile delinquents instead of kicking stars’ asses further blemishes your considerable talent,” Cornette wrote.

Cole has received criticism from some fans over his recent antics with The Elite’s The Young Bucks and AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, and it sounds like Cornette is adding to that feedback.

Cole has not responded to Cornette’s tweet as of this writing. You can see their exchange below:

    I don’t think Jim’s completely wrong here, but let’s be honest, if Cole stayed with WWE and went to the “main” roster, they’d ruin him and would not see much of a future in him.

    So if anything, he’s got a better chance in AEW than he would WWE.

    Same thought Mark, WWE had stupid ideas for his future so it made more sense for Cole to head off to AEW. WWE would have humiliated him. At AEW he is annoy but I’m sure he is way way happier where he is at now.

    I agree with everything above. I think he’ll turn on the Elite at some point. Sadly, it seems AEW doesn’t REALLY do anything good with some wrestlers until they’ve been there a while, Miro and FTR come to mind.

    Yeah, I think either way it was going to be awful. WWE was going to hand him awful things to do whereas in AEW hes friends with those two goofs and thus he chooses to do the garbage stuff. Wish he could’ve just ended up working MLW or something.
