Today he's a cartoon character, and if you accept that, his podcast stuff is entertaining. It amuses me that he talks about wrestling history as if he was in the front row for every major event from Gotch-Hackenschmidt onwards. He is very knowledgable, though. It also amuses me that he used to rag on ECW forever for being garbage wrestling and the fans chanting for the promotion meant that none of the wrestlers were over. Today he talks up Tommy Dreamer as being a model pro wrestler because he doesn't like guys like Orange Cassidy and "the grenade guy" exposing the business. I wish he'd lighten up a bit on his criticism of today's non-WWE product.
It’s the typical “today sucks but yesterday was awesome” mentality. Dreamer was horrible when he was young but great now that he’s old. In 20 years Omega will be a legend and whatever 25-year old kid is getting over will be an embarrassment. Cornette has no principles beyond “new is bad”.
