** Notably not fond of TheKliq because of the [=MSG=] Incident and them exposing the business and destroying kayfabe. He has a deep level of vitriol for ShawnMichaels. In fairness, he was on the creative team at a time when Shawn was the top draw in the company and was extremely difficult to work with.
** Mark Madden.

* DeepSouth[=/=]SweetHomeAlabama: Louisville, Kentucky; where he resides in "Castle Cornette." His real life personality is somewhat of a subversion to this trope. While James E is a staunch traditionalist when it comes to wrestling, he is a non-republican, pro choice, pro health care and reform, UsefulNotes/BarackObama supporter and an atheist. That said, he told just as many jokes about the Democrats as he did the Republicans while in OVW (but then, Obama was not big news yet)

* NerdGlasses: A wrestling nerd and, to a lesser extent, a computer nerd.

* NerdGlasses: A wrestling nerd and, to a lesser extent, a computer nerd. The oversized style he wears double as TheArtifact, as they have not been fashionable since the 80s, but are so associated with his character he couldn't have it differently.

'''James Mark''' "'''Jim'''" '''Cornette''' (born September 17, 1961) is one of the all time greatest and most colorful wrestling managers, promoters and personalities of TheEighties and [[TheNineties Nineties]]. A former ringside photographer who was offered a more active role in his profession in 1982 by Christine Jarrett and her son, Jerry; and supposedly funded by his mother's riches ([[ItRunsInTheFamily who made her money selling wrestling merchandise]]), his instantly recognizable Southern accent and angry motormouth have entertained fans for over three decades.

* ExactWords: Used this to [[KarmaHoudini avoid his just desserts]]. During the [=WWF/NWA=] crossover in the late 90s, the Headbangers (working face) faced Cornette's Rock & Roll Express, with the stipulation that if the Headbangers won, whichever Headbanger won the fall would get 5 minutes with Cornette. The Headbangers won by DQ when Barry Windham interfered and knocked Thrasher out with a chair. So the Headbangers won - and Cornette got 5 minutes with an unconscious Thrasher and pinned him after a couple of shitty elbow drops.

* SeriousBusiness: '''Wrestling.''' Jim lives and dies by the sport and is a staunch traditionalist. He ''[[BerserkButton despises]]'' people who disrespect and look down wrestling and cause damage to its credibility and integrity, such as Wrestling/VinceRusso (who, among other sins, [[InsistentTerminology insisted]] that he wasn't a wrestling booker, he was a "TV writer").

* WriterOnBoard: Cornette has a low tolerance for head drops, never mind garbage wrestling. Also little for "cartoon wrestling", rapping, breast implants...which made him an ill fit for promotions that run off of one or more of those. Most famously, he always ranted about the WWF production crew while he was on commentary rather than admit Undertaker's special effects came from a super natural source. It was also Cornette who decided Boogeyman just ''thought'' he was the Boogeyman.

Banning pile drivers in Ring Of Honor turned out [[SubvertedTrope not]] to be a case of this, but an attempt to get heat on the wrestlers who would inevitably keep using them anyway. This had worked for NWA figures the fans tended to like but not in ROH because [[TheScrappy the fans hated Cornette]] and gave him heat instead of any wrestlers(so he had to be removed sight).

* GirlsNeedRoleModels: On one hand, he stated that the days of Fabulous Moolah training salty women to wrestle were long over. On the other hand, he's willingly done the job for Wrestling/LunaVachon, insisted Wrestling/GailKim is an underdog audiences could get behind and pushed for Wrestling/SaraDelRey to get TV time HD net time.

** Others include Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis, Phil Mushnick, Terry Landell, Ed Ferrera, Wrestling/EricBischoff (though he has reportedly buried the hatchet with him, in that they will speak to each other, as long as it's not about wrestling), [[DumbassDJ Bubba The Love Sponge]] and Kenny Bolin. All of these are in RealLife. Bollin is a SitcomArchnemesis compared to the others.
