The best promo in years
« on: June 09, 2017, 10:14:11 PM »
I think this counts as a "promo" even though it was a shoot/Podcast. It has every element of an old school promo with signs of the times mixed in. The challenge, the date request, the recap, everything lol!

And that was the worst promo in years lol! Even when I turned my promo radar off and went back into typical shoot mode it was bad. A bunch of boring yammer that went nowhere. I skipped towards the end after about 6 minutes and saw that Vince also considered Jim's tirade a promo lol!

I don't know if it's still available, but Roddy Piper did an interview with Russo a few years back where they discussed their differences in wrestling philosophies. It's actually a heckuva show.

Cornette's response to that.


One of the best promos ever, combination of Paul Heyman and ECW Steve Austin.

That isn't my favorite type of promo but regardless of that he nailed it lol! He even went a little Rod Serling at the end which is just "perfect" for a promo with that old ECW promo style.

So Russo got a restraining order against Cornette.


Good Gravy Russo, in the words of Tony Schiavone: IT'S A FUCKING WORK!

In the last year or so we've seen a restraining order and a huge $$$ court settlement over a fake sport. And I don't usually use the age old annoying term fake when it comes to good ole rasslin but dang. I guess next Jim Crockett is going to hire Cold Case to do carbon dating on Dusty Rhodes to prove he was the Midnight Rider.

For what it's worth, here's Corny's take on the restraining order
