Jim Cornette has a very orthodox interpretation of what professional wrestling is and how it should be presented. Like many people that have orthodox interpretations of anything, viewpoints counter to his own get angrily dismissed. Jim's pro wrestling ideal is what Bill Watts did in Mid-South/UWF from 1979 to 1987. He tried to run SMW and OVW along those principles. The failure of the first in a region in which it had the best chance to succeed at a time when WCW was irrelevant and the WWF was way down and the fact that the second didn't need to succeed on its own terms due to WWE backing suggests that the time for that sort of Southern style product has passed for good.


I think that although he takes his opinions deeply to heart, some of his ranting and raving on Twitter and elsewhere is a work to the extent that Jim realized it will stir people up and get him attention, keeping him relevant in the process. I think there is also an element of the ridiculous that he excused in Memphis because the fans there either believed in or willingly suspended their disbelief about that with the likes of Joey Ryan he sees as just people mocking pro wrestling so fans can cheer in ironic fashion. Sometimes Jim is entertaining in his cantankerousness, but often it's a chore to listen to him.

Just after I complimented Cornette over for his professional commentary in MLW, Cornette tweeted this weekend that he’ll never put Mance Warner over in MLW again after he got speared through a table by an invisible man.

I like Jim the historian and 80’s/90’s wrestling personality but I don’t care for any of his political speak or opinions on modern wrestling.

As announced first to the National Wrestling Alliance email newsletter, Jim Cornette is coming to Atlanta on 9/30 & 10/1 to join Joe Galli on the broadcast team for the upcoming studio wrestling series being produced by Lightning One, Inc. Jim returned to the National Wrestling Alliance at NWA 70 and continued his brand of broadcasting excellence at the Crockett Cup. As the NWA brings back the studio wrestling format, we couldn’t think of any man better than the legendary Jim Cornette.

Jim Cornette will be a part the VIP Experience on 10/1 ONLY. So if you’re looking for a reason to do both nights of VIP, this is it. There will be more exclusive talents for the 10/1 show as well being added in the next week. Also we will be adding another talent to the 9/30 VIP as well (which is almost sold out).
