  1. Great show, yet again. Off to order my copy of the Jerichopedia.

  2. Yeah, the Jerichopedia thing was the bomb.

    But about that entertainment-related opening bell... there was something I've been meaning to send your way for a little while now, and this seems like the best moment to bring it up.

    When I was looking things up for my entry on hardcore wrestling, I encountered a few commentaries by Jim Cornette at his site, and it turns out he wrote one called The "Write" Stuff basically lamenting the fact that the WWE has writers who never wrestled rather than a booker who was someone in the industry, and the fact that WWE does Entertainment and not pro wrestling.

    And I just felt like writing him an email commenting on it that was simply going to say something like "But you work for TNA..." which as you have called it, is Sports Entertainment Lite.

    Thumbs up to him for the Joey Styles rant, but wow, so full of, um himself on that particular issue.

  3. Yeah, I'm a big Cornette fan and I can see his point about WWE writers not knowing the business, but I think he's way off base on WWE's current product. Especially when compared to his current employer.

  4. I don't blame him too much for his views on TNA, though. I think he's trying to keep his job, which I'm sure is a steady paycheck for doing basically what he's done for years only three days a month, while still trying to get out his qualms and views about wrestling in 2009.

    I'm actually more upset that people actually had the nerve to whine about his political commentary, when it was easily one of the sharpest things I had heard in the past year on politics, wrestling guy or not. I guess it's because the wrestling fanbase probably finds their views on the right wing side of things and can't care for a man being passionate and RIGHT about what he's talking about, while still doing it in the James E. Cornette promo fashion.

  5. I too think WWE is fine, fine programming.
