I know this isn’t directly related to Jim Cornette, but if you can, listen to Renee Paquette’s Oral Session’s interview with Mark Henry.

When he explained what he’s in AEW to do, especially when teaching/dealing with the wrestlers, their social media interactions, drawing from wrestling history, backstage culture, repetition in matches, all I could think was ‘get someone to put this in Jim’s line of vision/earshot’

Now it is 😂. Thanks for the heads up!

The thing is, Henry's like the 8th veteran they've added to help backstage and nothing ever changes. It doesn't matter how many coaches you hire if none of the younger talent are willing to listen.

Not only do they not listen. Even jobbers like Brandon Cutler has the audacity to publicly mock the veterans when they give advice.

I wonder if they'll actually listen to Mark Henry. They've pretty much ignored all the advice given to them, probably why it looks like an indie show. Hope Henry shoots and inducts Cutler into the hall of pain for talking trash about a legend like JR.

I am curious if Cornette watches the full show and applies Bill Watts fines, to see how much they accumulate. See who is the biggest BW offender. Hope they follow through with it. My guess would be 1200 which would be 24 fines.

There’s so much knowledge in these 2 videos, it’s depressing to think what AEW could’ve been with Jim on board.
There's always the thought in the back of your head about them completely ignoring him like they do other knowledgeable veterans. He didn't want his name attached to any of that nonsense. He went through it in ROH and once was enough. People still blame him to this day for its collapse.

Had no idea he was booking in ROH at the exact time I quit watching. What a coincidence that ROH was amazing until after FB 2011. Funny that he bashes some of the stuff AEW does now considering I'm reading he supported people like Davey Richards (who, in 2012 was far worse than The Bucks or Omega are now).

His knowledge on getting people ready for TV (I.e. OVW system), booking, selling, psychology, formatting a show, pacing feuds etc would’ve been invaluable to a start up company like AEW.

Unfortunately TK (an inexperienced booker), insulted him by telling him (an experienced booker) that nobody would book his TV but him.

Never mind, hopefully another billionaire with more sense will take another punt on wrestling.

Ospreay vs. Ricochet is the reason the word Cringe was invented
just bad choreography Garbage
look at all these hits that only connects with the air
