Adam Pearce addresses criticism of him wearing attire on WWE RAW that was inspired by Jim Cornette

As seen during the April 29th 2024 edition of WWE RAW, general manager Adam Pearce wore a suit that was inspired by veteran wrestling personality Jim Cornette. Pat McAfee commented on the attire by saying that Pearce should get a tennis racket which was the prop that Cornette used during his time as a manager.

Pearce received criticism for wearing the attire. One Twitter/X user, @MattKoonMusic, wrote that “it’s a bizarre business when you circle the wagons around a racist, homophobe, and misogynist.”

Pearce addressed criticism that he received…

“One person decided to buy a horrible red jacket to wear for fun and quote Sweet Stan in a tweet referring to it. Another person decided that it must mean solidarity with bigotry, among other terrible things. Why do I block people online? Same reason I flush the pot. Touch grass.”
