    Jim Cornette Rips on Triple H

    Jim Cornette has a feature on his official website, JimCornette.com, where fans can ask him his take on any subject. He admits to being "politically incorrect." So here's the question that was asked.

    Q.---Who is the most overrated wrestler of the past, and today?
    Asked by Joe in Bourne, Massachusetts.

    A.---The whole idea of promoting wrestling is to make the fans think a wrestler is better than he is, so to me, overrated is not the term. OverPUSHED is a different story. Who has been pushed on a major league basis way more than their talent or attitude should have dictated? One has to look no further than the mass hypnosis Vince McMahon worked in getting the Ultimate Warrior over. A body with no substance, Warrior was stunningly bad when he entered the business, and never got much better. His work sucked, he was dangerous, never tried to get better, he couldn't cut a coherent promo, he had a superstar attitude, he was a prick to many of his fellow talents, and he was pushed solely because of Vince's fascination with steroided-up male bodies. He had a 3 or 4 year run before both his bad attitude and the public seeing through him coincided, and a 6 week nostalgia run 4 or 5 years later. The only legacy he left was that he made a lot of money undeservedly and had really bad matches with some really good workers. On the female side, look to the female version of Warrior, Sable, and pretty much repeat the above paragraph. Couldn't talk, no emotion, couldn't work and wouldn't try to learn, star attitude (she did hide it well toward those in power--for awhile), and was pushed only because of her ability to pick a good plastic surgeon and Vince's apparent sexual frustrations. I've seen hotter ice sculptures. Killed her husband's career by powerbombing him on TV and no guys would sell for him (or in Steve Austin's case, even WORK with him) after that.

    For the present, let's go with Hunter Hearst Helmsley-McMahon. Actually, he's a very good worker and studies the business. His promos are usually as exciting as a coma and last longer than this recession, but he has good matches. Problem is, as hard as he's been crammed down people's throats for the past 10 years, he should have surpassed Hogan, Austin, and Rock, but HHH is what is called in the business "the guy that works with the guy that draws money." He should be in there to have a good match and put the star over. Actually, he should have been fired in 1996 when he shit on the entire sport with the infamous "curtain call" at MSG, but Vince, the guy with "balls of steel", let HHH piss in his face and not only didn't do anything about it, but let him marry his daughter! And a sledgehammer? Jesus Christ, I wish he'd hit me in the head with it before he starts talking on TV. HHH will be the top guy in the WWE until he looks like Dick the Bruiser in his final days working an Indiana county fair show, and if THAT'S not overrated, I don't know what is.

    Re: Jim Cornette Rips on Triple H

    Yeah, you're right with that one actually. It's very rare nowadays that HHH has a good match at all. The most recent good match of his that I can think of would be his match against Undertaker from Smackdown late last year in like what? September, October or something like that?

    Yeah, I know he was in the chamber from this year's NWO but I'm talking about one on one singles matches...

    Cornette is the man... Although there are a couple of minor things I'd disagree with there, considering I despise the walking turd that is Triple H and respect Cornette unflinchingly, I'll disregard them.

    Triple H vs Cena at NOC last year was pretty great.

    I cannot argue with Cornette. Although I don't mind Triple H, he really shouldn't be the big star, and he is far more believeable as the big bad heel of the company. Plus, the sledgehammer really is a bad idea. You could kill or mame someone so easily with one of those, that to use it in the ring just makes no sense. A chair, even a pipe, but a sledge? Unbelievable.

    For me I think that Triple H is not over used, maybe just givent the title a little to much. But to say he is the most overused talent of this generation a bunch of bull crap.

    Its not that I dispise the 1st Amendment, its just that he is making some bold statements.

    I can't disagree with Jim Cornette about Triple H being overrated. Vince's brain must've either skipped a little or brain-dead, when he forgave Triple H for the MSG Incident in 1996 and give him all the fame, money, power, his daughter, and championships that he didn't deserve. What kinda business is that?

That's a spit in the face for those who were released or fired in the recent years in the WWE.
    Please explain the latter part of that statement.
