    You guys really responded to the Clintster's "Mean Gene" appreciation thread, so let's now show appreciation for the man that, as David Crockett would say, "spent his mother's money very well." Arguably the greatest manager that ever lived and one of the greatest talkers in the history of the business, ladies & gentlemen I give you "James E. (Jim) Cornette".

    do they still promote matches at high school gyms and gutted-out supermarkets in shit-hole towns ?

    I remember driving through rural Missouri with a buddy and catching an off-brand show (about 7 matches, including females) in a building that was the town's "old" WalMart.

    The heels all put on bad English or Middle Eastern accents and a lot of the tag teams had hot stripper "Miss Elizabeth" types in tow

    The crowd was scary.... as close to a juggalo or Retardation Rocks Summit as I hope I ever witness

    Cornette tells stories about how they would book shows in these little towns in Kentucky and Tennessee with populations of 300 people, and literally a thousand people would crawl out of the hollows and show up.

    this place was tiny but they packed it the hell out... more piercings in their heads than teeth, most of them, but they hung on every move and boo'd the heels until they were hoarse...
