The good folks at Monday Night Mayhem sent over some information regarding their recent interview with former TNA Management Representative Jim Cornette. Here are the TNA Wrestling-related highlights of the interview.
The Executive Producer of Ring of Honor on HDNet, Jim Cornette, was a featured guest on this week’s live edition (10/11/10) of the award-winning Monday Night Mayhem. You can feel the “MNM Fall Tour ’10” every Monday night (at 7PM ET/6PM CT), exclusively on The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network (www.MondayNightMayhem.com, www.AudioWrestling.com, www.Hybrident.tv, www.iTunes.com, www.Facebook.com/MondayNightMayhem, www.Twitter.com/FeelTheMayhem, & www.MySpace.com/MondayNightMayhem).
Whether he believes Eric Bischoff was “pulling the wool” over the fans’ eyes on Hulk Hogan’s health status leading into this past Sunday night’s Bound For Glory, along with his thoughts on TNA giving a reported $15,000 to J-Woww (from MTV’s Jersey Shore) to appear on this week’s iMPACT: “First, I have to say that it’s not the wool that Eric Bischoff has pulled over the wrestling fan’s eyes, it’s his b*lls that he teabags them with once again. Secondly, I gotta be perfectly honest: I completely forgot that their Pay-Per-View even happened, and haven’t even had time to read on the Internet about what it is they exactly did other than that they are going to get J-Woww $15,000 to come to iMPACT. So whatever happened at Bound for Glory, they’re giving J-Woww from ‘Jersey Shore’ about five times as much money to show up in one night as they’ve given any of their homegrown wrestlers that have bled, and sweat, and paid the price for the past four or five years like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels (who they let go), Beer Money, and probably even Matt Morgan, and a few other people like that, they’re giving it to a J-Woww from ‘Jersey Shore.’ That tells me all I need to know about Bound for Glory.”
How the ending of TNA’s Bound For Glory Pay-Per-View compared with the entire flow of Ring of Honor’s latest iPPV offering (Glory By Honor IX): “It was very complicated, and as a result of those people coming out (Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Jeff Jarrett), and turning, and doing this, and doing that, I forgot who actually won the match, because no one gave a s**t after all that was over with. But on the Ring of Honor Pay-Per-View from New York, I could tell you that Roderick Strong defeated Tyler Black for the ROH World Championship. I could tell you that The Kings of Wrestling beat Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin (Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team) in the “Dream Tag Team Match.” I can tell you that El Generico & Colt Cabana defeated Kevin Steen & Steve Corino. I can tell you that Christopher Daniels defeated Austin Aries, because we had a wrestling show, and they had a soap opera with weapons, and that is the difference, I think, between Ring of Honor & every other wrestling promotion out there today.”
Jim Cornette has always been a critic of everything going on the wrestling world and he’s not a very good at it. I remember he used to criticized the Monday Night Wars a lot because they’re disrespecting the NWA old school tradition of wrestling. Until now he still wants to implement that NWA tradition. He tried to do it with the WWF and then in TNA but all unsuccessful. HE is criticizing TNA a lot but when he was there, TNA didn’t go anywhere. He has to stop living in the old NWA days because nobody wants to see that now cause it’s boring. It’s better that he sticks with ROH.
