Jim Cornette defends Jerry Lawler against line backlash in WWE RAW commentary


As noted above on this link, WWE Hall of Fame Jerry “The King” Lawler has been trending around the world on Twitter since last night’s RAW, and has received a significant amount of social media response for referencing Akira Tozawa’s senton to Austin Theory as “Ramen Noodle Moonsault” in the commentary.

Wrestling veteran Jim Cornette rang the bell this morning and started the discussion after defending Lawler’s comments.

“So now people are crazy about @JerryLawler for telling a joke. Now I understand why modern wrestling sucks, because most modern wrestling fans are so little weeping pussies that they don’t deserve a good fight. How do these people go out in public without bursting into tears? #WHINE, “tweeted Cornette.

Lawler has yet to comment on the backlash to date, but is active on Twitter today.
