• Famous WWF Legend Wants Jim Cornette In The WWE Hall Of Fame

On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Snake Pit’ podcast, WWF Legend Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts talked about popular Old School Wrestling manager Jim Cornette and stated that he feels like Jim belongs in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Here’s what Jake Roberts said:

“I love Cornette. He’s there to make you think outside the box, and when you come to Jim Cornette, you don’t even look at the box.

Cornette should definitely be in there (WWE Hall of Fame).

Whether he makes it or not I don’t know, but he should definitely be in there. He has contributed so much to wrestling. Say what you want to about Corny but he gets the job done.”

Cornette hasn’t exactly been on good terms with WWE for a long time, but that changed in 2017 when he inducted The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Do you want to see him Jim Cornette being inducted himself? Think what you want about him but to be absolutely fair, hardly anyone would say that Corny doesn’t deserve it.

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 92nd birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend Don Leo Jonathan (Real name: Don Heaton).

Don Leo Jonathan wrestled for several territories in Canada and the United States during the 40s, 50s, 60s & 70s, before he retired in 1980.

In his final match, he teamed up with Andre the Giant & Roddy Piper to defeat The Sheepherders (The Bushwhackers in WWF) & Buddy Rose.

Standing at 6’6 and weighing over 300 lbs, Jonathan was a former 2 time NWA Canadian Heavyweight Champion, a former 2 time NWA Texas Heavyweight Champion and a former NWA Canadian Tag Team Champion.

In 1973 and 1974, he also wrestled for Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wide Wrestling Federation, which a few years later was renamed to ‘World Wrestling Federation’.

Don Leo Jonathan was inducted into multiple Hall of Fames, including Stampede Wrestling Hall of Fame and the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which – if it happens – will be as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
