Jim Cornette and his wife Stacey were the subject of the #SpeakingOut movement. It was alleged that they groomed young OVW talent and inducted them into a strange “cult” of sexual service and other restrictions. The stories are coming out and Cornette’s former best friend can attest to practically all of them.
During The Bolin Alley, Kenny Bolin and his son Chris discussed Jim Cornette’s situation for well over an hour. They confirmed that the accusations against Cornette are practically all true.
“Yes I was aware, and people ask me why didn’t I say anything? Well, number one it wasn’t my place to say anything number two anyone who would say something I would think anyone getting lured into this would be the one to say something.”
They couldn’t confirm the rumor that Jim Cornette is into “golden showers.” On that note, Carmella and Corey Graves seem interested in the idea.
Chris Bolin noted that the reason why nobody “batted an eye” about Jim Cornette’s personal life is because it’s not so strange in comparison to the rest of the pro wrestling business. There are dark stories all over the place and Jim Cornette and his wife “swinging” didn’t fall into the category of crazy stuff that is hard to believe. It seems bad outside of the wrestling business, but not inside it.
It was said that nobody came forward for years because it would have cost most individuals their job. The wrestling business is tricky and political. This helped keep Jim Cornette’s secret hidden for decades.
Kenny Bolin also claimed that Jim Cornette’s wife had “already been with The Big Show before she met Jimmy.” Bolin then commented that he’s seen “Big Show naked smoking a cigarette and that’s not a pretty sight all I know is that any girl he’s been with that’s not my territory.”
Bolin then paraphrased an email from an unnamed former “huge star” in WCW. This story was about the first time he met Jim Cornette and his wife Stacey. Apparently, the situation ended with Stacey offering to “blow Kevin Nash.” It was not confirmed whether if Big Kev allowed her to do it.
Kenny Bolin went on to say that “there were a lot of powerful people in WWE who knew what was going on, but they didn’t do jack sh*t about it.” OVW was WWE’s developmental system at the time.
Jim Cornette outright denied these claims. Cornette’s attorney Stephen P New got involved as well. Bolin also stated that New doesn’t know what kind of can of worms he has opened.
