SETH ROLLINS/BECKY LYNCH: Seth Rollins responds to Jim Cornette’s comments about Becky Lynch

Posted on 5/22/120 by Colin Vassallo

Seth Rollins addressed the Jim Cornette controversy on his
After The Bell podcast with Corey Graves this week. Earlier
this week, Cornette went on a long, profanity-filled tirade
against Becky for getting pregnant while she’s at the top of
her game.

“I don’t want to spend too much time because I don’t wanna
focus on it, but it hurts my feelings on a personal level
because Jim Cornette is someone who is a legend in our
industry and he’s someone who I’ve personally worked with in
Ring of Honor,” Rollins explained.

Rollins said that the comments – not only about Becky but
women in general – caught him off guard and he lost respect
for Cornette because of that. He said that a lot of people
had already lost respect for Cornette but he kept holding on
because of that personal connection between the two and he
thought Jim would think twice before making some comments
like that about his soon-to-be wife.

Cornette even suggested that WWE should put pregnancy
clauses in the women’s contracts to avoid things like this
happening in the future.

“On a grander scale, that mindset has to be eradicated
because it’s so disgusting,” Rollins said of Cornette’s
thoughts on women.

Rollins then continued saying that he can’t even forgive
Cornette for what he said and wanted to make it very clear
that this is something that he’s very proud of Becky and the
courage it took to put her career on hold to embark on this
