Seth Rollins Says He's Lost Respect For Jim Cornette Following His Comments On Becky Lynch’s Pregnancy

Seth Rollins Says He's Lost Respect For Jim Cornette Following His Comments On Becky Lynch’s Pregnancy

Last week Jim Cornette's comments about Becky Lynch and her pregnancy upset many. Cornette is of the mindset Lynch picked the wrong time to get pregnant and turn her back on millions of dollars. Here is what he said:

"This is a multi-million dollar talent and she tells me she’s pregnant? What the fuck?” Cornette said. "This is like one of the boys breaking his leg on purpose while he’s on top. You can control this, this is not like a fuckin’ injury. This could have been controlled. It’s not like I don’t ever want them to have children, but when both of you have top spots where you can make seven fuckin’ figures a year and blah, blah, blah. Wait three years and have a fuckin’ baby."

Becky's husband-to-be, Seth Rollins is now speaking out against Cornette who he worked during his time in Ring Of Honor. Here is what he said on the latest episode of WWE After The Bell podcast

"It hurt my feelings on a personal level because Jim Cornette, that is someone who is a legend in our industry and he’s someone that I’ve personally worked with in my time at Ring of Honor, and for him to come out and say some real negative things, some real misogynist things about women in general and pregnancy in the industry,” he began. "It was just it kind of caught me off guard and it made me lose a lot of respect for someone that, you know, who a lot of people had already kind of lost respect for. I was still holding on to hope that somewhere along the line, it was a personal connection between Jim and I that, you know, he would think twice before making just some egregious comments about women, about my wife that were just completely I can’t even forgive them. I don’t even want to repeat them.

"On a grander scale, the mindset that has to go into that needs to be eradicated all around. It’s just so disgusting. And, you know, the more I sat and thought about it, talked about it, I knew we had this appearance coming up and we’re going to have this conversation. I wanted to address it just because I want to make it very clear that, you know, I’m so proud of my fiance, of Becky, of what she’s doing and the courage that it takes for her at this point in her career to make a decision. She’s 33 years old. So, once you hit thirty-five for women, you start running risks with these pregnancies. So, she made an incredibly tough decision. She went out there on national television. She had to say things the way she wanted to do. The fact of the matter is, she is the most talented woman I’ve ever seen in my entire life. And she’s going to be just fine. Being pregnant, making money, doing alright. So, everything that Jim Cornette said is complete nonsense, not just for her, but for women all around the globe,” he continued.
