As noted, Jim Cornette made his return to GFW during last night’s Destination X special, and is present at tonight’s Impact tapings, which will air on August 24th and the 31st.
We also reported earlier today, via Les Thatcher on Wrestling Weekly, that Cornette has not signed a contract with GFW, so his longterm status with the company is unknown.
Cornette clarified his status with GFW on his podcast today, and confirmed he has no deal with the company despite his return last night. Cornette added he is not a member of the GFW roster, and that he had been contacted directly by Anthem to work for them. Cornette noted he has yet to sign anything with the exception of clearances for his likeness to be used on TV.
Frankly, this is perfect. I'm so burned out on authority figures, so not only is it great to have Cornette back—arguably the best authority figure in company history—but only on a part-time basis so the TV show "GM" isn't eating up valuable TV time every god damned week. Especially feuding with one another.
