Jim Cornette said:
“One time a couple of people started hooting him at a church gym show and he gets a microphone, cuts a heel promo on them. So when he came back up I said, “You enjoy turning heel?” I said, “No, you’re f****** gonna be a god**mn babyface from here on out. If Vince McMahon who’s paying you this $250,000 a year wants you to be a god**mn ballet dancer you’ll be wearing a tutu on broadway. So don’t cut anymore god**mn heel promos when you’re supposed to be a babyface. Learn how to make ’em like you or find a new line of business.” He didn’t like that s**t.”
