In one of the latest editions of his podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about his feelings regarding Vince McMahon and his ongoing storyline featuring Austin Theory.

Cornette mentioned that he has observed Austin Theory being flexible in regards to working with any content he has been provided with by WWE.

The wrestling veteran believes Theory is giving his best with whatever WWE is throwing at him, but eventually it all leads to him simply reacting to Vince McMahon's conversations whenever they share the screen together.

Cornette mentioned that instead of saying his own lines, all Austin Theory has to do is react to the Chairman.

“So now Vince likes his spunk and so now he is doing recurring things with Vince. I saw this clip where Austin Theory is doing everything he can with what he has been given to work with, but he is sitting there and having to react to things that Vince is saying rather than saying his own sh*t,” said Cornette.
