Jim Cornette went absolutely off on Vince Russo revealing that he contacted Pop TV President Brad Schwartz offering his services as a consultant to explain why TNA isn't getting the ratings that Schwartz had been "sold on" as well as having previously contacting Destination America with a similar offer.  Cornette's rant closes out his "Jim Cornette Experience" podcast episode at and is 40 minutes of never-ending bile and venom the likes of which has rarely been seen on Planet Earth, closing with Cornette announcing he has pulled out of a Wrestlecade appearance this November in North Carolina because Russo is also booked on the event, warning Russo that he did so because he never wants to be in the same place as Russo ever again and next time, Russo had better be the one to pull off an event because if not, well, you can imagine what might happen (and if you can't, well, Cornette explicitly lays it out).

The Montréal Comic Con, which will take place next weekend, has announced that there will be a panel featuring Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff talking about the fall of WCW. Paul Jordan sent along the following panel description:

Montreal Comiccon is happy to bring wrestling fans Face Off: Bischoff vs Flair and the fall of WCW. For the first time on stage Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair discuss the rise and Fall of WCW. How they brought the fight to WWE? Why did they lose the Monday Night War? What happened between them? What do they think about Vince Russo jumping ship? Be there as the two time hall-of-famer Nature Boy Ric Flair face off with his former boss, the man who brought to life the NWO and most controversial man in wrestling Eric Bischoff. It will be as explosive as WCW Monday Nitro! An event not to be missed, on Saturday, July 9 at 7:00 p.m.!
