The mask complaint is just silly. He’s a retired wrestler who wore it when competing and still does now. Who the fuck cares? You see him for 30 seconds at the beginning of the show.

Cornette’s comment about him calling matches exclusively for a smark audience is fair. He over-calls moves using extremely technical names that even I think are a bit much, and by the time he spits that out 5 more moves have been executed. Orihara moonsault? I might be the only one who knows Masao Orihara, a little known Japanese indy wrestler who once was a fake Great Sasuke 20 years ago. What’s the point of calling the move that? And it takes away from any attempt at actually telling the story that needs needs to be told in AEW in 2019 because you’re trying to pop 3 people at home. So Cornette is right about that one.
