Meltzer doesn't know shit about anything. Cornette is a genius in every way way in comparsion to him. Hmm not hard to figure out who to follow and even admire respect. Guess it is hard for some simple minds.
Jim Cornette is a wrestling historian. He's a legend and one of the all time great story tellers. However the business has left Cornette in the past. He still thinks the ideas of the 80s will work in todays environment and that's just simply not true. I like Jim and I hate Jim...both are real easy to do.
While Cornette did co-found the promotion, isn't it Rick Rubin's idea to have this movie gimmick in the first place? Then again he approved of it too so I guess that's on him too. They had a guy who was wrapped in bandages that could barely move, who was claimed to have been resurrected with magic and doesn't "expose the business"
Honestly though, they are both full of shit. But I'd listen to Cornette due to his actual experience in the pro wrestling business rather than someone who's just writing/commentating and never really had anything else to do with the business. My only gripe with Cornette is he's still stuck in the past and things that used to work before doesn't really work now. Maybe back in their day when suspension of disbelief is easier to do when it wasn't overexposed as to now.
