Jim Cornette was recently interviewed by “Newsweek”. During the interview, he discussed whether he cares about fans being offended by his opinions. Here are the highlights:
On The Jim Cornette Experience:
I spent the majority of my adult life in a business where the object is to make people believe that you believe what you say. I was good at that, right? Even in a worked environment in wrestling.

On People Get Offended:
