AEW has been home to the now-vagrant ROH since Tony Khan bought the promotion, but according to Jim Cornette, the pseudo-union has done very little for the stars signed to All Elite Wrestling.
After the first episode of AEW Dynamite on January 10, 2022, where Tony Khan announced his acquisition of the Ring of Honor, fans were ecstatic. Unfortunately, the promotion has quietly infiltrated AEW instead of getting a TV deal or building it yourself.
During the last Jim Cornette experience In the episode, WWE veteran Tony Khan lashed out for booking ROH Stars to just walk in without a build-up after Prince Nana recently accompanied Brian Cage to Dynamite.
“Find out what you’re doing, don’t assume everyone already knows! That was a memo we got from Bill Watts 40 years ago,” Cornette said. “Everyone – in quotes – knows everything, but if you’re in a conditional match: explain it. If your promo is about someone, remember what you did last time in town and talk about it. Make things meaningful, people don’t just appear and disappear!” (from 02:31).
Cornette then went on to compare the presence of ROH in transit to that of a vermin infestation.
“An infestation is appropriate, not because one of the Ring of Honor boys is roaches, but because if you see one or two, there’s a bunch more lurking around the corner! And belts everywhere!” (from 03:04).
Jim Cornette was also not overly impressed with Wardlow and Brian Cage’s clash two weeks ago and wondered why the two had a no-build match.

Despite his criticism, Jim Cornette wants Wardlow to leave AEW behind and join WWE as soon as possible
Though Triple H now leads the WWE, no other star has made the leap from Tony Khan’s promotion than Cody Rhodes. As fans continue to clamor for the likes of Malakai Black and Andrade El Idolo to make the leap, Cornette thinks Wardlow should be next.
During an older episode of Jim Cornette experiencethe legendary wrestling exec reasoned why Wardlow should be better used in WWE.
“Wardlow’s goal should be to get that shit out to WWE as soon as possible. He’s the size. He has the looks. He can talk enough and this is a tailor made place for them to get over him,” said Cornette. (from 30:46)
Some fans have been more critical of Wardlow’s portrayal in AEW lately, adding some legitimacy to Cornette’s assessment. But could the War Dog survive the landscape of WWE and reach heights it could never reach in All Elite Wrestling? Or is the 34-year-old set for bigger things under Tony Khan’s leadership?
