Jim Cornette trended on Twitter during Monday afternoon after a series of exchanges with wrestlers and fans led to people accusing him of being sexist. Here are some of the messages that generated the controversy:
Terry Funk has said “I can’t make them believe pro wrestling is real but I can make them believe that I’m real.”
I believe in Terry Funk. I don’t believe in what’s her face.
Come on, Satin, just because YOUR wife doesn't rattle the pots & pans around at your house, you can't say that's not the normal place for the average American housewife! That's not sexist, it's just stating facts!
-attack popular wrestlers who don’t do things the way it was done down south in the 1980s
-use homophobia & transphobia to dismiss a wrestler’s presence
-use misogyny to dismiss a prominent & successful female wrestler’s opinion on wrestling https://t.co/rRyK78gdQ1
