Jim Cornette’s Famous Shoot on Hulk Hogan

Jim Cornette’s Famous Shoot on Hulk Hogan

“The pinnacle of this icon garbage came in last night’s cage match between Hulk Hogan and Roddy Piper…WCW had the gall to say this was the greatest cage match in history…You’ve got a 46 year old bald movie star wannabe, who looks like Uncle Creepy with a good build, taking on a guy with an artificial hip who hasn’t wrestled a full schedule in ten years. It’s a tribute, in my mind, to the massive egotism of both men and an indictment of WCW’s promotional policy that this match even took place, much less in the main event, when the card was probably the best WCW is capable of having. At the ten-minute mark, they were sucking wind so bad the first three rows passed out of oxygen depravation. It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad… I’m sick of guys claiming to be the icon especially when it usually comes from guys who just didn’t know when to quit. Roddy Piper was my idol when I was a teenager, but that was 20 years ago. Hulk Hogan during his best years was 50% media creation and that was long gone. This match was a slap in the face to every wrestler that takes pride in his profession… On a personal note to Hulk Hogan, you are a household word but so is garbage and it stinks when it gets old too.” – Jim Cornette, Monday Night Raw 10/27/97
