Jim Cornette slammed Jon Moxley’s match against NJPW legend Minoru Suzuki, claiming that the entire match looked ‘phony.’ ‘
On his podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience, the legendary manager stated that having a Japanese superstar brutalize an AEW top-tier wrestler on American television felt absurd. Jim Cornette said Jon Moxley’s Paradigm Shift wasn’t impressive, and he took a shot at both men for faking their punches to make it look like shoot-style wrestling:
“This cult figure from Japan that has an ardent and small following is on national TV in America beating up a former WWE Champion, who is supposed to be one of the big stars of their company. And then Moxley through a couple of shoot punches since they’re supposed to be shooting, and this is supposed to be shoot-style wrestling, and all of it looked phony. He threw the shoot punches, one of which looked like a potato. The second one missed completely and then grabbed Suzuki and gave him a regular double arm suplex and just dropped him over flat of his back. That was the finish one two three.” Cornette revealed.
He went on to say that Moxley’s post-show celebration with the crowd was far superior to his match with Suzuki:
“So he beat this feared shooter with a regular double-arm suplex that wasn’t even that impressive for a double arm suplex. And then he left the ring and went out into the crowd and luxuriated in his hometown love because he went all over the arena from one side to the other for a while because apparently, they went home with a lot of time still left on television, and him in the crowd was better than that ugly f*cking match,” Jim Cornette said.
The aftermath of Jon Moxley’s match with Minoru Suzuki drew harsh criticism on social media. Both men, without a doubt, failed to sell each other’s moves and even botched their finishing moves.
Fans even slammed AEW for omitting Suzuki’s entrance theme, in which fans sing along to the quotes ” Kaze Ni Nare .. ”
