My only knock on his career is that his on-screen work seemed to go downhill once he got to the WWF in 1993. I thought he'd end up with the same effect that Heenan and Jimmy Hart got-- they were already kinda' well known, but became household names when they hit the WWF.

I mention this, because Cornette seemed like he was the tailor-made for the WWF's style. But he never really seemed to have that one major incident, angle or feud that made him significant in the WWF. Despite the fact that he was an on-screen character for about 5 years (1993-1998). Maybe it was just bad timing? I would've loved to see him there, one year earlier, as the manager of Sid, instead of Harvey Wippleman.

Very entertaining manager and character, though. There's also a picture of me, from 1992, where I (unintentionally) look just like a Jim Cornette clone.
