Jim Cornette took to Twitter this morning to address the allegations that claim that he and wife Stacey have groomed wrestlers for sexual favors.
“Helpful hint: I have been told that when you’re faking screenshots of something that “happened” years ago, you shouldn’t use the person’s profile picture that’s only been up a week and a half. It’s the little things, but that’s for attorneys to discuss.”

Cornette’s co-host Brian Last announced on Twitter that Sunday’s podcast is when Cornette will talk about the flood of allegations towards various people in wrestling.
For everyone asking about Jim's reaction to what is going on right now with the UK wrestling scene, the Drive Thru will be recorded on Sunday. It seems like everything really started coming out while we were recording the Experience.

As noted last night, following the rape accusations made against David Starr, a movement began on Twitter with various people using the #SpeakingOut hashtag to tell their story with allegations directed to various people in the wrestling business. The allegations varied from harassment to verbal and physical assault for some people.
An updated list of allegations made within the last 24-48 hours are up at this link on Reddit.
Again, as noted last night, these are allegations and we don’t have a way to verify every single thing being alleged in the Reddit thread but it is clear that there is still a lot of work to do in wrestling (and society) to make positive change.
