I can't even wrap my head around the fact that Bobby Eaton's greatness is questioned even tangentially by anyone with any knowledge of the business. This thread has jumped the shark.

Personally I see the Bucks as more of the modern Rock & Roll Express than Midnight Express. Lucha Brothers are more the modern Midnight Express IMO.

Back in the old IRC Death Valley Driver chat room Bix was this teenager that swore up and down he was gonna be in the business someday because he was friends with Keller and Metlzer and had all the SCOOPS, yet all his scoops were wrong.

I have a feeling he has not changed much since those days.

Quite interesting how Cornette continually calls out modern wrestling for looking utterly fake, then goes off on Rousey for basically saying modern wrestling is a bunch of "fake fights".

It's a "only I can insult my family" type feeling I'd assume. He doesn't think she earned the right to be a grouchy vet.

Corny can be a hypocrite. Like when he went off on the Hardy teleporting stuff, which was goofy shit, but no worse than some of the Undertaker/Paul Bearer stuff from the 90s, which he doesn't go after. Or if one of his old friends did something stupid back in the day there's usually a "well, but" type excuse.

It's not just Cornette, all the "comedy wrestlers" on twitter getting offended as well, including one who wanted to change the term wrestling to "Performance Arts"... 🙄
