Cornette and Santino Marella have heated exchange (video) Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/07/2017 at 07:49 PM
There was a heated confrontation between Jim Cornette and Santino Marella that was captured on video by a fan. The incident took place during a wrestling convention in Detroit, Michigan.
The heat between the two of them goes back to 2005 in OVW. Marella was supposed to act scared of The Boogeyman during a segment and instead laughed. Cornette, who was booking for OVW, responded by slapping Marella which led to Cornette losing his job with WWE.
Cornette commented on the incident with the following tweet:
Sorry to anyone I missed at Cobo, some comedy midget wanted me to slap him AGAIN so he could sue since he's unemployed. Walked out instead. https://t.co/ezgCj7mqLV
