Jim Cornette is one of wrestling’s most recognizable voices. Cornette worked as an agent, booker, color commentator, manager, promoter, trainer, and occasional professional wrestler. Right now, he runs his own podcast where he reviews wrestling from both WWE and AEW.

Being a booker in the past, Cornette had a lot to say about the confusing segment between Sting and Lance Archer.

“He got thirty seconds on this interview to put himself and Darby Allin over before he got interrupted. But, he was interrupted by Lance Archer and Jake Roberts.”

Cornette mentioned a tweet he received from a fan about Archer being a face but turning heel again on Dynamite. He also criticized the inconsistency in his character.

“They interrupt Sting halfway, tell him off, kind of, but not really, and then leave with no conflict. They say, “We took the time this time, but next time we’ll take more time or whatever they said. And they walk off and then Tony goes back to Sting, and Sting says see you next time, Tony.”

Cornette heavily criticized the segment and even came up with a better version of what could have transpired. He mocked JR for his line, ‘Interesting development’ too. “What the f–k else is he gonna say?” said Cornette.

Is Sting going to be feuding with Lance Archer next?

After his cinematic battle with Ricky Starks and Brian Cage, Sting can still go. Even at 61, the Icon still captured fans’ interest with his incredible performance at Revolution, and one can’t help but look forward to his next PPV battle.

Lance Archer is probably the best big man in AEW. Amongst men like Cage, Wardlow and Luchasaurus, no one has struck fear into the hearts of AEW’s main event talent like Lance Archer.

His AEW run hasn’t been the best, but a feud with Sting could take him to the promised land.

A cinematic battle could be on the cards for Double or Nothing, and the Icon and the Murderhawk Monster can assemble an entertaining bout. The Dynamite bout aside, the potential in this feud is limitless.
