Jim Cornette On Russo, Ferrara, Herd, Colt, Steen, Benoit, Dunn, More

Jim Cornette On Russo, Ferrara, Herd, Colt, Steen, Benoit, Dunn, More

Legendary wrestling manager Jim Cornette recently did a Q&A on Reddit.com.

If you could give Jim herd and Vince Russo positive credit for anything what would it be? Hopefully dying soon

Have you spoken with Ed Ferrara since his "Oklahoma" character? I remember you warned that you would beat the shit out of him after that happened. I saw him in Nashville in 2002--I had promised the promoter I wouldn't punch him, but I didn't promise I wouldn't try to get HIM to punch ME first--I told him what I thought of him for doing that to JR and I spit in his face in front of 30 witnesses, and the gutless pussy did nothing. That's what he deserved for making fun of a near career-ending disability suffered by a guy who has more talent in his finger than Ferrara in his whole body, he should have never been allowed in our business in the first place. If anyone sees him, tell him Jim Cornette STILL says he's a gutless sack of shit.

What was the deal with Colt Cabana? What did/do you not see in him? Colt is a fine mid-card wrestler, an average look and an oK at best promo, he was perfect for WWE and I have to assume he pissed someone off there--he was NOT a fit for ROH as we were trying to present an athletic, serious, credible style of pro wrestling and funny doesn't draw money. We didn't offer him a contract because he didn't fit those plans, and he has made a big deal out of it, we never said this publicly until he made it an issue-personally, I don't think his comedy is funny and I don't think anyone trying to make a career in pro wrestling should make fun of it at the same time, a la his bullshit "$5 wrestling" with the asshole who runs Highspots. I have no use for that type of horseshit--

Describe Vince Russo in 10 words or less. Asshole Dipshit Cocksucker Motherf***er Prick Crook Conman Blithering Idiot Christian

Why does Kevin Steen hate you so much? Because I got him a raise, a contract renewal, Visa paid for, a 9 month undefeated run with the World Title and tons of TV time, even after he refused to lose weight to get the spot, so you tell me--

Why do you always seem so pissed off? I'm actually happy most of the time unless I'm talking about modern pro wrestling--plus, people like me pissed off better and quote/post/retweet/youtube me knocking people more than me praising people

Have you been to WWE's new performance center/NXT arena yet? What are your thoughts of it since you were the front runner of WWE's developmental program. Have not been to the Center, it's a great idea/concept but nothing can replace working in front of real fans who bought tickets at shows large or small--

Your opinion on WWE letting Chris Benoit uncensored on the Network? He was a great talent, a wonderful friend and a fine human being who for some reason or combination of reasons went insane and did horrible, unforgiveable things in the last two days of his life--you can't erase him from history, but if anyone would confront it we might learn something to prevent it from happening again.

Did you ever have any kayfabe close calls in the 80's? Like, did you ever accidentally walk into the same gas station as the Rock And Rolls and have to start brawling? I actually took my wife to the amusement park in Charlotte on a rare day off, and suddenly found myself in line behind Ricky & Robert on the "Win a Date with the R&R Express" deal at one of the rides--we slipped out the "in" line and left the park. If we had been seen, R&R woud have had to beat me up for real in public or we would have all been fired--as it should be today.

Thoughts on WWE producer Kevin Dunn? I don't think about Kevin Dunn, the wrestling fan's worst enemy, so I can sleep at night--I take comfort in the fact that ebveryone else who knows him hates him too--

In your opinion, what was the worst booking decision ever made which actually ended up on TV? The Brawl for All tied with Austin hugging McMahon at WM17 that led to the collapse of the entire business
