Jim Cornette lambasts Ronda Rousey for recent 'fake fighting' comments



Former owner of the Smokey Mountain Wrestling territory and WWE personality Jim Cornette has made some scathing comments towards former WWE RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey. The former UFC Champion spoke to Steve-O on his podcast and was not happy with the WWE fans. Rousey stated “the thing is I love performing, I love the girls. I love being out there but, at the end of the day, I was just like, ‘F**k these fans, dude.’ My family loves me and they appreciate me and I want all my energy to go into them. That was my decision at the end of the day. It’s like, ‘Hey girls, love what you’re doing. I’m gonna try and take all my momentum and push you guys as far as I can – fly little birds, fly! I’m going f**king home.’ And that was basically it.”

"you f*cking ungrateful tw*t"

Cornette replied, saying "This f*cking douchebag. Apparently now she thinks that she did it, she came with her stardom, her celebrity. Let me smarten you up to the wrestling business, you f*cking ungrateful tw*t. You were a star in your world. And that world closely translates to pro wrestling, always has. You can become a box office attraction in wrestling if you've been good in another sport and as Brock Lesnar showed, vice-versa."

"I loved her 'game face' when she walked out and did her deal."

Cornette would elaborate further, "here's the problem, you didn't do it your f*cking self. Triple H laid that [WrestleMania debut] match out. Specifically because he wanted you to get over. Kurt Angle was your partner right? Not only one of the quickest learners in the history of f*cking wrestling but also a f*cking guy who was far higher than Ronda Rousey in the shoot fighting world. She had a good persona, I loved her 'game face' when she walked out and did her deal. She treated the business seriously when she was in the ring."

"I should've known that there was a problem when she's the one who had 2 nervous breakdowns after losing MMA fights, she's a mental case. But now, 'it was just so hard, I was on the road 200 nights a year.' MAKING SEVEN FIGURES, I don't know exactly what her contract was, what her pay was. It's been reported a million and a half in some places. But if anyone thinks that Ronda Rousey wasn't making over a million dollars a year you're f*cking insane."

"You've insulted every single person that ever got in the wrestling business..."

Cornette finished by saying that Rousey has completely disrespected all the performers who came before her. "And two hundred days a year? My f*cking as*hole bleeds for ya darling. Try working 100 days in a row for Bill Watts for two grand a week. You've insulted every single person that ever got in the wrestling business that didn't come in and get given a six-figure contract by the WWF. Their f*cking efforts [you 've] diminished that. You whine and you gripe and your p*ssy needs powdered cause you were on the road 200 days a year. You have no more respect and you gained no respect for the business, Now that you're done with it, you were just enjoying it for a couple million bucks a year."
