Jim Cornette Files Lawsuit

JIm Cornette

Jim Cornette has filed a lawsuit against G-Raver, The Indy Connection, owner William Molnar and Shopify. The lawsuit involves a t-shirt that says “F*ck Jim Cornette, with his eyes scratched out with X’s, needles in his forehead and some blood.

The shirt was inspired after G-Raver suffered a bad cut on his arm during a match. Cornette mocked the cut, stating the fans would have been lucky to see “this idiot bleed out.” 

G-Raver replied with, “Hey @TheJimCornette, let me see you at a convention. I’ll spit in your f*cking mouth. You’ve done nothing to me. Now you’re an advocate for death?”

Then, Cornette filed a lawsuit for Shopify trying to copyright “F*ck Jim Cornette.” Forbes obtained a statement from Cornette’s lawyer. 

Statement From Cornette’s Lawyer

“Cornette is a professional wrestling living legend and believed by many to be the world’s leading expert on all matters having in any way to do with the sport of professional wrestling. He did not consent to the use of his name or image.” 

“It adds claims of unfair competition, trademark dilution, trademark cyber-piracy, common law trademark infringement, unfair competition, dilution, unauthorized use of plaintiff’s name and likeness, and, in the alternative, conspiracy under Pennsylvania law.”

G-Raver has yet to be served the complaint. Although, he he did send out the following tweet.

It has been rough year for Cornette. Months ago, he was fired or quit, depending on who you ask from NWA. That was related to him making comments that were considered racist on NWA’s TV show.
