"The Louisville Slugger" Jim Cornette was welcomed by The Big Mosh, Blade, & "The Chairman Of The Board" Todd Vincent to The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network for his first MNM appeaerance in nearly four & a half years to discuss the release of what is surely the perfect gift for the holiday season, which is now available…thanks to Jim Cornette. Be sure to purchase The Midnight Express 25th Anniversary Scrapbook (available at www.JimCornette.com & www.CornettesCollectibles.com). Mosh mentioned to The Mayhem Nation that Jim has indeed spent more time with Vince Russo than with "Your Home Of Wrestling Radio" during his hiatus from the program. "Please don’t remind me. Once again, I believe I’m in a Russo-free zone, I believe I’m safe unless he runs for politics in the state of Kentucky. I believe I’m finally free."
 
After parting ways with TNA Wrestling several months ago, Jim saw other opportunities open up for him in the form of becoming the Executive Producer of Ring Of Honor on HDNet, and to say that Jim is excited once again about being part of the wrestling business in something he believes in would be a massive understatement "Jerry Jarrett told me when he walked away from the wrestling business, he thought he hated the wrestling business. Then after he was away from it for a while, he figured out that he didn’t hate the wrestling business, he hated who he was in business with in the wrestling business." He added, "I was disappointed in TNA, because I wanted so bad to see the company succeed. The only competitors to Vince McMahon to try to keep him from having a monopoly. They got national television, they got Pay-Per-View, they got distribution. But the problem is Vince Russo is writing the television program & has been for three years, and it’s been an ongoing thing. When Jeff Jarrett & Dutch Mantel was there, you could at least get some things through & changed, but now that he is unopposed & is running amok, the problem remains. With Ring Of Honor, they are trying to provide an alternative product to Vince McMahon…instead of a cheap copy. Sports-entertainment has gone far enough, you can’t copy it anymore, and you certainly cant beat Vince in a game he invented. So I don’t know why somebody will not present pro wrestling as a sport, and since TNA refuses to do that, then ROH is gonna do it…and we are gonna prosper for it."
