What's everyone's thoughts on him?
I've been listening to his podcasts for a solid month or two now, and I while I started off enjoying it, he seems to say a lot of things that make no sense or just to hear himself speak.
He seems incredibly biased against AEW and I'm specifically writing this in reference to his comments about the Butcher and Blade vs. FTR. He basically threw B&B under the bus from the start and acted like their gimmick made no sense to him. After reading the comments, it seems everyone disagreed with him and he was just talking out his ass. It's as though this man has never seen Gangs of New York nor has the imagination to understand the Butcher is a big lumberging brute that has power and one hit kill ability like a cleaver and the Blade is like death by a thousand cuts due to his technical wrestling ability and quickness.
It really undermines his insight when he speaks so ignorantly about things that appear so obvious. I enjoy his stories and curtain pulling of times past and wrestling from when I was a kid, but AEW has long term story telling, in my eyes excellent gimmicks (which he constantly shits on, yet loves Road Warriors, R&R Express etc. which are excellent gimmicks but would fit right in, in AEW), varied wrestling and not JUST spot fests anymore, so I just don't get his constant hate for them. My one thought is that he's setting up a heel turn to join FTR for a few shows.
Anyway, what does everyone else think about him? Any other old school guys with podcasts that are a little easier to listen to?
FRAT version: Jim Cornette hates AEW and can't understand and obvious gimmick like Butcher and Blade, and I don't understand why.
