Jim Cornette has had his say on recent comparisons that have been made between Seth Rollins and WWE Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels.
Olympic gold medallist Kurt Angle recently gave his thoughts on Seth Rollins and spoke of the comparisons he sees between The Visionary and WWE icon, Shawn Michaels.
Speaking on his Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette opened up on those recent comparisons and thinks that while comparisons can be drawn between the two but not in every regard:
“I think he (Kurt Angle) is making the comparison because they resemble each other, in terms of, they were the guy in WWE at their individual times that was long, lean, and athletic. I don’t know that you can compare Seth with Shawn Michaels in terms of, you know, drawing ability and box office.”
“I mean, Seth is good but Michaels, the one thing you have to do about the obnoxious little pr*ck that he was, he was nearly the best in the business. Especially at the WWF style of the 90s.”
“People were saying during that period of time in the mid-90s, regardless of company, that Shawn Michaels, he’s the best in the ring in the business. Not the best promo, not the best human being, but the best in the ring. I don’t know if you can say that about our friend [Rollins]. But he’s one of the best in the company in the ring.”
