Fan backtracks on claim that WWE forced him to leave for wearing Jim Cornette shirt

UPDATE: The fan now claims his “house guest” posted the claim on his Twitter and the incident never happened.

ORIGINAL: WWE held a live event on Monday in Sioux City, IA at the Tyson Events Center. A wrestling fan by the name of Patrick Davis got Jim Cornette’s attention after he shared a photo on Twitter and noted that he was asked to leave the event due to concern that the shirt he had on was offensive.

He was wearing a now classic Jim Cornette shirt. According to Davis, he was also informed that the shirt would appear on screen as the event was being filmed for television.

Davis, who is recent quad amputee due to pneumococcal pneumonia, wrote the following:

“This was taken 30 minutes before I was asked to leave by security at last night WWE event in Moline, Illinois. I was representing Jim @TheJimCornette But I was told my shirt was offensive. They were afraid it was going to be shown on TV because the event was filmed.”

Cornette saw this tweet and gave his reaction by offering to refund Davis’ ticket to the show. He would then rightfully lash out at WWE.

“WTF? Seriously? I’ve met Patrick, @WWE, & he has more guts than anyone & the right to wear what he wants. This was bullsh**. Patrick, email me at & I will REIMBURSE you for your WWE tix. Especially now that you know not to buy any more! #A**holes.”
