On Jim Cornette:
I have not always agreed 100% with some of Jim’s assessments but I have never doubted for one second his passion and love of the business. Ring of Honor is fortunate to have Cornette on their team.
Talking about wrestlers in the ring into their 60s:
Wrestlers over 60 who I can recall still being good at that age obviously include Jerry Lawler and Ric Flair but let’s not forget that Lou Thesz was still a solid hand when he was north of 60. I don’t recommend every wrestler performing when they reach the age of 60, obviously, but a few guys have been able to pull it off on occasion especially “Naitch” and the King.
Emailers also frequently ask about Amy “Lita” Dumas who is traveling with her band and living in Atlanta the last I heard being a Guest Host on Raw. For the umpteenth time, I do not have any prior knowledge of who will be guest hosting Raw or what else may or may not occur on Raw or any other broadcast. I like it that way, for the record. Amy had a great run in WWE, was a pleasure to work with and one of my favorite hires.
