I think Cornette is a straight up carny but I tend to trust his word over Meltzer, who isn't always accurate in his reporting.

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.

Dave Meltzer is just a fucking idiot.

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" :lmao

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.

I feel like Jim Cornette is a lot like Vince McMahon, amazing wrestling mind in the 80s and into the 90s, still holding on early 2000s, but in 2019 is just so out of touch with the modern fans. Jim isn't as deluded as Vince is but he definitely has some very dated views.

As for comparisons between Cornette and Meltzer, completely irrelevant imo, one is a long timer promoter, booker and on screen personality and the other reports news, backstage reports and gives his own opinions and reviews. This is as apples to oranges as you can get.

Also Cornette ran Ohio for years, which produced talent like Brock, Cena and all your other favorite stars of the last 18 years or so, but yeah Jim is trash right? :mj4
And every promotion that he has touched either fired or him or went out of business.

Smoky Mountain
OVW
ROH
Impact
MLW
Let's see how long he lasts on the NWA.

Hating on Cornette just because he doesn’t like the wrestling you like wouldn’t make you any better than you claim Cornette to be.
But it has nothing to do with Wrestling with Cornette with his bashing of AEW. It's personally, it's clear he hates the ground The Bucks and Omega cause they called him out on his bullshit when he was in ROH. You seem like a smart guy, don't tell me you believe this is all down to personal taste in wrestling with Cornette. Cause it ain't.

OP should add this context to the topic because it's pretty random and basic, hence my general my response.

I like listening to Cornette's rants.

I don't always agree with him and most of the time, he sounds like an old man yelling at the sky, but he's fun.

Oh so he doesn't like AEW...are you shocked?

That's like being shocked that Scorsese doesn't like the MCU. Come on guys. No one honestly expected him to like it, right?
