    ironic since him and russo hate each other for the same reasons.
    I wouldn't call Jim a wrestling historian... He understands one specific region of wrestling, but not much else. His comments on the history of New York style wrestling and Japan make it clear he doesn't understand why they were popular, he just sees it through the lens of the region he does know

    I have to say, I love the reverence in this post, which I can sense because you used the entire title to honor it.

    but he does know a lot about wrestling from the past and coupled with his massive collection of wrestling memorabilia, one could call him a historian.

    still don't like them.

    Just saying. He really doesn't get the new York style of wrestling and seems to think its more recent than it really is. Toots Mondt developed that style, a guy who was promoting when Cornette wasn't born yet. Toots Mondt created the basic foundation of wrestling as we know it, he instituted time limits and the concept of a double countout, and did it not to create a sports atmosphere but for entertainment reasons. Mondt, the father of modern American wrestling, was all about entertainment rather than legitimate sport. Also worth Noting that Mondt was one of the co founders of WWE

    Regarding Cornette, Pat Patterson once said that that each wrestling promotion needs to be treated like a different country and you cant expect what works in one promotion to work in another.

    Cornette bases his entire ideas of what will work in wrestling off of what goes over in Louisville Kentucky. he's said so himself. Certain OVW wrestlers got over there, but that didn't translate to other areas and cornette blamed that all on WWE. He even felt Cena's OVW gimmick should have been used and hated most of his wwe run. He refused to watch the rapper gimmick because he was convinced wwe was pissing away talent.


    This was unrelated, I just needed to rant about this

    ETA


    Cornette also has stated that his thinks cruiserweight divisions are a waste of time and wont draw because they are too small... This isn't something he said years ago either. He said that this week.

    He also has a tendency to try and take credit for stuff he had nothing to do with
