Jim Cornette accuses Chris Jericho for controversial comments
Jericho had recently fired back at his critics for his dangerous bump he took during the Blood & Guts match. He had said:
“There’s a couple of chicks in WWE who said some stuff and they should probably not have said that. They probably weren’t trained any better, and in 6 months they’ll probably be asking us for a job anyways and I’ll remember that, so we’ll leave it at that.”
Shotzi Blackheart and others from WWE had heavily criticized the spot involving Jericho in the Blood & Guts match. As the AEW star referred she could have been one of the “chicks” . Now, Jim Cornette heard the comments and lambasted the former WWE star.
He took to Twitter and said:
“Looks like somebody’s grumpy about criticism again. Isn’t “chicks in WWE” a sexist remark? Some people watch for those things, you know.”
