Becky Lynch made a surprise announcement recently that she’s pregnant with Seth Rollins’ child. She also relinquished her Women’s Championship belt to WWE superstar Asuka. While most people were happy for Becky, Jim Cornette wasn’t pleased.
He said, “She’s got plenty of time left. What would you do if your wife came home and said instead of making a million dollars next year I’m gonna basically just be a raging bitch for the next nine months and then give you more sh*t to worry about around the house?!”
He added, “You can’t always be on top of the wrestling business in a $1 million a year spot or more, but you can [have a baby] — what is she? Can she be 30?”
These comments haven’t gone well with Seth Rollins. He said that the comments about his fiance hurt him. He also said that he has lost his respect for Cornette, just like several others have. He said, “It hurt my feelings on a personal level because Jim Cornette is someone who’s a legend in our industry, and he’s someone that I’ve personally worked within my time at Ring of Honor.
“For him to come out and say some real negative things, some real misogynistic things, about women in general and pregnancy in the industry. It kinda caught me off guard, and it made me lose a lot of respect for someone who – like a lot of people – I had kind of already lost a lot of respect for.
“I was holding on to hope that somewhere along the line; there was a personal connection between Jim and I that would make him think twice before making just some egregious comments about women and about my wife. I can’t even forgive him; I don’t even want to repeat them.”
Now that’s one supportive partner. What say?
