The Rack 07-11-13: Jim Cornette Interview

On this week’s edition of the “The Award Winning Best New Show” The Rack, join host Lindsey Ward and her producer Sir Rockin as they discussed all the news that was the week in pro wrestling, including Matt Morgan asking and getting his release from IMPACT Wrestling, Matt and Mr. Anderson’s families both expecting new bundles of joy in the future, TNA getting their payment systems straightened out, the ‘Out of Nowhere’ announcement of Randy Orton’s divorce and the public airing of his salary and other details, Sunny appearing at a fanfest and will pose, at a cost, for pictures in bed and ‘spooning’ with her and other news and notes!

We were also joined by iconic wrestling manager and former WWE, NWA, WCW and Ring of Honor personality Jim Cornette! In a nearly 40 minute interview, he discussed his upcoming induction into ‘The Hall of Heroes’ at the Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest, his memorabilia collection and what his favorite piece from the collection is, his recent weight loss and what brought it on, what inspired him to write his book “Rags, Paper and Pins–the Merchandising of Memphis Wrestling” and where the title came from, his thoughts on the role wrestling managers today and of the climate in wrestling as a whole, could wrestling ever be taken seriously again, if he knew Kane/Glenn Jacobs would be a star back in the day, working with Owen and Davey Boy Smith, his opinions of the Bashams and who the worst trained performer he’d ever seen was, if he ever caught the WWE bus from his infamous video and more.
