In the same interview, Cornette addressed the statement speculating that CM Punk and him are right wingers. Cornette said, “Calling me a right-winger? They’ve gone too far, Brian [Cornette’s co-host]. Especially in support of those they allegedly supporting. They’re buckaroos fans, AEW fans, fans of people we blister.”

Cornette added, “We say bad things about their favorite wrestlers, and they’re the ones, that are either fanatical in some right-winged way… The Khans gave money to [Donald] Trump, so did [Chris] Jericho. And his wife went to the insurrection and bragged about it on Facebook. But Punk and I are somehow in this f***** ilk?”

Cornette blasted Jericho for supporting former U.S. President Donald Trump and Tony Khan, the president of AEW. Cornette made it clear in the Interview, claiming that his actions are not related to any political or ideological, but rather honest and realistic.
