Jim Cornette loses it over recent AEW Owen Hart Cup match

Former WWE personality Jim Cornette has voiced his apparent displeasure over the recent AEW Dynamite match between Dr Britt Baker DMD and Maki Itoh.

Itoh was the Joker’s mysterious opponent for Baker in the May 18, 2022 Owen Hart Cup Tournament, Dynamite edition. She received a positive response from the fans present.

After a one-of-a-kind match that showcased Itoh’s “unfathomable stubbornness,” in Excalibur’s words, the former AEW Women’s Champion took the win and advanced to the next round.

It’s all a bit too much for Cornette, who, in the latest episode of Jim Cornette Experience, used different four-letter words to describe the match. However, the word that stands out the most is “joke”.

“A joke at the expense of knocking out a joke from Japan, an indecent joke! It makes fun of their own business! This is the thing with [Maki Itoh] the argument can’t even be made that, “oh [Jim] Cornette hates all Japanese female wrestlers. “Asuka is good and Hikaru Shida is good, one is good and the other is good, no one thinks so [Maki Itoh] is a good female wrestler, or even a wrestler, wonders. It was a joke she didn’t try to come true, she couldn’t come true if she wanted to, but unfortunately she didn’t try, this is just sarcasm. “(From 2:52:20 to 2:53:07)

Cornette seems to imply that Kenny Omega is why Baker vs Itoh happened in the first place:

“This game not only buried Britt Baker, it buried the TV show, it buried the Owen Hart Tournament, made the whole company look like an ass, it killed TV ratings, battle the game has been taking a break.The fans in the building are like “what the heck” so why are you doing this just for fun [Kenny Omega] Of those strange hobbies he has that no one else shares and never will in this country, why would you do this? “(from 2:54:09 to 2:54-42)


Owen Hart Cup will continue this week on AEW TV

As Double or Nothing approaches, the Owen Hart Tournament is also coming to an end. Competition is heating up as there is only one version of both Dynamite and Rampage left before pay-per-view.

In the upcoming episode of Dynamite, Britt Baker will face Toni Storm in the first women’s semifinal. Then, two days later, on Rampage, Ruby Soho will face Kris Statlander in an attempt to advance to the finals.

The winners of both of these matches will meet at Double or Nothing, where one of them will become the first ever winner of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup Tournament.
