The Full Story Behind Jim Cornette’s Issues With WWE

Ryan Clark


Here is the full story behind what happened with Jim Cornette at the OVW tapings last week.

Kevin Fertig was in the ring with Daniel Puder as his partner against the team of Kenzo Suzuki and El Diablo in a dark match. The match was designed to give Suzuki and Puder some ring time to work in front of a live crowd.

Fertig came to the ring with a baseball cap on backwards and apparently just goofed around in the ring and put his hat back on after taking bumps. Jim Cornette sent word from the backstage area to the ring that he needed to stop his stupid antics.

Once the message was received, Fertig took a sombrero that a fan had at ringside and did more stupid antics, When he returned to the back after the match, Cornette threw a fit and cut a pretty nasty promo on him which caused him to be suspended from OVW.

Fertig is said to be unpopular in some circles backstage but is also someone who has great potential. He was also inovled in a fight at a bar in Louisville, Kentucky several months ago and has court scheduled for this summer.

There was concern last week that they were actually going to fire Cornette but Jim Ross stepped in and clamed the situation down. He’ll be back in about five weeks.

Tommy Dreamer will be overseeing Ohio Valley Wrestling TV while Cornette takes a break with Lance Storm, Al Snow, and Danny Davis also expected to pitch in. (PWI)
