  • National Let's Laugh Day - Pro-Wrestling & Comedy One of the strangely amusing feuds going on in pro-wrestling these days is Jim Cornette taking on comedy wrestlers.  The fact that Cornette did as much comedy in his day as anyone (from being frequently humiliated to his witty slams on promos) is not a reality that he has not addressed.  He tends to hold that he was funny when everyone else was serious and now he's trying to be serious and everyone else is trying to be funny.  He has obviously been ripping on Vince Russo and Kevin Dunn (and to less of an extent Vince McMahon) for years about the growth of bad comedy in pro-wrestling.  He also loves to tear into Joey Ryan, Kenny ...
