Jim Cornette & Wife Accused Of Sexual Misconduct; Cornette Responds

The #SpeakOut Movement is in full effect, calling out several famous celebrities for sexual misconduct and rape. One industry seeming taking the brunt of all of this is the Sports Entertainment world. Several wrestlers, promoters, and legends are being named by victims on social media. This has led to some, like Matt Riddle, to bring out counter facts of their own, while others have all but gone into hiding. There is one, however, who has never shied away from controversy, and has never been one to hold his tongue, and that’s Jim Cornette. Cornette and his wife have been accused of grooming and sexually assaulting younger talent back from the OVW days, but Cornette denies it all.

Independent wrestler, Phil Earley, took to social media to accuse Cornette and his wife.

“I made a very vague post yesterday about @TheJimCornette.

In the face of current events I feel the need to clarify and speak up.

During my first year in the business, his wife, Stacy, attempted to groom me.

She approached via DM, sent me lewd photos I never asked for, implied protection from the Kentucky commission (stating he was a family friend), and told me she WAS going to f*** me, as if I didn’t have a choice.

My experience with them is tame compared to others, though.

When Jim was booking at OVW, if you wanted a contract or on his show, you HAD to perform sexual acts on his wife, many times with him watching. This has happened for many, MANY people.

A close friend of mine was groomed and basically brainwashed by them for YEARS. When he finally escaped, Stacy went to great lengths to not only terrorize him, but to actively try to have other wrestlers physically assault him.

I was one of them. She sent me pictures show tires of his he’s slashed, and bragging about setting him up to lose his job, his apartment, even his car.

All because he escaped an extremely toxic relationship and didn’t want anything to do with them.

Stacy bragged about being able to call the Kentucky commission to give him ‘targets’. He was a family friend, and if she wanted, she could turn his attention to anyone licensed in the state to potentially hurt, and sometimes even ruin their careers.

When he says ‘cult of cornette’, it’s because he has a history of taking advantage of greenhorns using his power and position as booker for OVW in order to fufill his and his wife’s sexual desires.

They used their place of power to hurt many, many people.

No one wants to speak up because of his position in wrestling, but this is EXTREMELY common knowledge among OVW alumni.

This will probably ruin a lot of opportunities in wrestling, and that’s fine, but make no mistake: Jim Cornette is trash. He and his wife have made power plays in order to hurt many, many people.

f*** you Jim. f*** you Stacy. You are scum.

I just feel like I betrayed the school that let me learn the craft of professional wrestling. OVW is the reason I turned my life around. And I feel like I’ve betrayed them. That’s how messed up wrestling can be.

My hands are shaking and I’m scared shitless over typing this.

If it was a man sending a woman unwanted nudes, telling them how they WERE going to f*** them, and tried to get them to actively commit crimes to hurt others, no one would tell me ‘I don’t see anything wrong with this.’

I hated it and how it made me feel.”

Earley even added screenshots of some of the interactions. However, Cornette was quick to defend himself, in typical Cornette fashion.

“Morning all–I know that my name has to be involved in everything because it gets attention, but I’m too busy running a pizza parlor from the basement of my pedophile ring to make any twitter goofs and their 700 fake accounts famous today

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 is already set to attack these allegations head on. It’s hard to say what the truth is with all of this going on. While we want to believe these victims blindly, there are a few bad apples out there who like to make false reports when they feel slighted, or are just are out ‘clout chasing’. In this case, a source close to us has stated that Cornette’s ‘swinger lifestyle’ has been well known in the industry for many years, and widely accepted in the wrestling world. Now, this doesn’t mean that they didn’t take advantage of their power amongst young talent, but it also doesn’t mean they did. We have to take our time, as the public, and look at all of the facts before coming to a jump conclusion. Let’s not ruin someone’s career over nothing, but let’s also not let a criminal walk over a ‘he said/she said’ argument. The best outcome here is for all of the facts to come out and justice to be properly served.
