He had some nice words about Chris Hero but his political rants will have to be curtailed as he already seems to be alienating people.

Thankfully, it was at the end of the show. My favorite line was "Chris Hero in developmental was like putting a college student in 5th grade"

I'll take any Cornette I can get. If the man wants to talk politics then so be it....would rather it were wrestling stories, but I just find the man interesting.

I thought the gun control rant would never end, but most of the show was enjoyable. Good mix of wrestling talk/politics/bs/etc

Glad Corny is back. I'll take a good mix of old-school wrestling stories, ranting about wrestling bullshit and political stuff.

UK fans ... I'm thinking of going to see Corny's one man show live, anyone else interested? We could meet up. I'm looking at the London show (£50 seems INSANELY expensive) or the Cardiff show (£25 much more like it). I can always go to Wales to see my folks easily, so it's a realistic option.

You tell me Parv... would London be a more expensive venue to run with higher overhead than Cardiff? Somebody told me London was the most expensive city in the world for everything.

Absolutely it would. Cornette is playing in the Leicester Square Theatre right in the heart of Soho. It's the difference between booking a place in Times Square or, I dunno, somewhere in Atlanta (pick your own "city from elsewhere in the country" here). That's not to say Cardiff itself isn't expensive compared to other towns in Wales though.

That said, I've been to comedy gigs at that same venue several times, which were priced more like £15 / £20. I didn't go, but I even think Mick Foley did one of his standup shows there and it was more in that £20 ballpark. It's one of the more "low rent" spots in the area. More used for gigs than plays. £50 is definitely at the expensive end. That's top West End theatre ticket prices. As a point of comparison, I'm seeing Richard II starring David Tennant at the Barbican in January and tickets were £55 each.

I am still tempted to go to the London one for convenience though. I do hope Corny hasn't priced himself out of a full house in the capital with this.

Alex Shane is behind this.

The venue in London is where the Jim Ross one was held. VIP were £35 + booking fee.

It's mental that Cornette would be more than Ross by such a margin.

Typical Alex Shane.

Coming back to this podcast, I loved Ross's rant at the kids he imagines watching the "hammerlock match" between Terry Taylor and Flair. You can hear him getting angry at the idea of them on their phones or iPads. I also loved the stuff about the clenched fist.

Could you imagine if they combined tours how great it could be. The pod was just a glimpse.

Man that atheist shit at the end of the newest episode is a real turn off. His show is half awesome old school wrestling and half preachy, political, agenda driven bs. Such a love/hate show for me. Oh and that chick does not sound hot at all and she tries so hard to

Completley agree. Cornete is so great when talking positivily and telling stories about pro wrestling. I wish he would leave the political/religious stuff to himself. Nothing can turn people off faster then you bashing things they believe in.

Yea that whole essay but Alice Radley I think her name is, was just cringe worthy. I'm not the most religious person in the world but I do believe in god and he just comes off as he shits on anyone who does. Then on top of it they want to act as if they're more intelligent because they don't believe. Like I said I'm not overly religious but that and the political crap is just too much. The sad part is that he is one of my favorite story tellers ever about wrestling so ill just have to hope the bs dies down

Cornette to me is a lot like Jim Ross. I love listening to their interviews once or twice a year, maybe three times, but that is about it. Also, while I can listen to Steve Austin or Konnan talking about pretty much anything, I don't really want to hear Cornette talking about anything else other than wrestling. He doesn't seem to be that interesting of a person once you take wrestling out of the equation.
