Jim Cornette came out swinging today in response to the tweet posted by Chris Jericho on Sunday.
As previously noted, Jericho issued a “ban” on Cornette from watching future episodes of AEW Dark and Dynamite. The tweets appear to be a response to Cornette’s criticism of last week’s show, including the debate segment between Jericho and Orange Cassidy.
Cornette sent out this tweet today: “Chris I appreciate your consideration of my sanity, but I do it as a service to the wrestling fans. They need some measure of comfort in these cosplay times we’re in. But don’t worry–I NEVER watch “Dark”.
P.S. Careful of the drooling bikers. #LittleBitOfTheVirus #COVIDGod”
The hashtags included were a reference to Jericho’s band Fozzy performing in front of thousands of bikers at the Sturgis rally over the weekend. Jericho has received a ton of criticism for this and many have pointed out that he is set to wrestle Orange Cassidy in a couple of days on Dynamite.
Cornette and Jericho have been friends for decades dating back to when Jericho worked for Cornette in Smoky Mountain Wrestling. Based on the tweets below, it looks like that friendship could be over.
Chris I appreciate your consideration of my sanity, but I do it as a service to the wrestling fans. They need some measure of comfort in these cosplay times we're in. But don't worry–I NEVER watch "Dark".
P.S. Careful of the drooling bikers. #LittleBitOfTheVirus#COVIDGod https://t.co/MR5uv8kqBW

As seen below, it looks like Cornette will discuss Fozzy at Sturgis on his next podcast.
Looks like Jericho started early today. He probably should have waited until after I release tomorrow’s Drive Thru, where we talk about how stupid he is for playing concerts during a pandemic. PS – we don’t watch the shitty YouTube show. #alittlebitofthevirus https://t.co/H3JxfJDNnS
