Podcast Episode 112.5: Jim Cornette

On his recent tour through the United Kingdom, Jim Cornette was gracious enough to sit down with our very own Hashtag Billi for a few minutes to talk about wrestling – as much as we could fit into a rather short but insightful conversation. From the role of managers to the steroid era, to modern day booking, and more – there was no holding back when it comes to Cornette.

In addition to our sit down interview, we were also given permission to record a few segments from his live show, where he discussed a wide range of topics, from Lex Luger and his time with Yokozuna, to his feelings on The Kliq and even Dixie Carter. It’s a pretty fun listen from start to finish – we hope you enjoy it!

Featuring: Hashtag Billi (@DirteeJesus), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag).

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years. Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us. It's still real to me, dammit!
