On this edition of CAC Radio, hosts David and Morgan are joined by two special guests! First, CAC board member Gloria Lovell joins us to chat about the upcoming 50th reunion celebration, and then we’ll talk with legendary manager, and 1997 CAC honoree, Jim Cornette about his time in the wrestling business, and how he continues to entertain crowds to this day.
During his wrestling career, Jim Cornette was an innovator and entertainer of the highest order. He is one of the most influential managers of all time, as well as a world-class personality. To quote his website jimcornette.com, “If you’ve watched professional wrestling on TV or pay-per-view, seen it on a home video, or read about it in a book or magazine for the last 30 years, chances are you’ve seen something Jim Cornette did, heard something he said, or read something he wrote. For three decades, “James E.” has been a fixture in the sport.”
During this interview, Jim Cornette discusses:
Growing up in Louisville, KY
