    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    It's just a ridiculous argument that bothers me because it's not even true about his era. Real sports wouldn't have guys with masks. They would all use their real names, managers interfering would be suspended by the company, attacks during interviews or after matches would be treated as criminal assault, and no one would get their face shoved in a birthday cake. The gaga is what makes wrestling fun and his era had plenty of it, much of it involving him! I think there are arguments that wrestling should be internally consistent and I definitely agree with those. I also think in spite of that, moments that unsuspend your disbelief are bad, just like they would be in any scripted form of entertainment. But he is nostalgic for an era that never even existed.

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    This was from one of their first press releases: "Focused on producing fast-paced, high-impact competitions, AEW Offers fans less scripted, soapy drama, and more athleticism and real sports analytics, bringing [a] legitimacy to wrestling that it has not previously had. Wrestlers will also be given more freedom to explore their characters and highlight their athletic abilities. Introducing statistics to wrestling for the first time ever, AEW will raise the stakes for its matches and deepen fan engagement by tracking each competitor’s wins and losses as the wrestlers pursue championships, analyzing their moves, assessing damage to their opponents, and providing insights into their winning streaks."

    In the same way Cornette is mad at Jim Ross because he feels like he should have walked out on AEW over Stadium Stampede (seriously!), I'm mad at Cornette for having become impossible to defend.

  7. Serious question. I was trying to think of a promotion that has ever been worse and was struggling. Relatively major league promotions (meaning some type of TV or at least plenty of available footage) would be the criteria for competition. I'd take WCW 2000, which was a horrible year of wrestling for the most part, over any 12-month period of TNA. This is totally non-trolling. I'm just trying to think of a wrestling company -- ever -- that was definitely worse than TNA has been for their entire existence.
