WWE: Jim Cornette, Eric Bischoff & Michael Hayes ‘Tables for 3’ Filmed; Cornette Comments on Bischoff & Initially Hating HHH

A new edition of Table for 3, a WWE Network exclusive show, was filmed recently and it will likely catch they eye of many hardcore wrestling fans. This is because the three people seated for a table discussion are Jim Cornette, Eric Bischoff and Michael Hayes – three of the most out spoken people in professional wrestling.

This was revealed during an interview that was recently done with Cornette on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast. During the interview, Cornette notes what it was like talking with Bischoff for the second time in 24 years and mending fences with each other. Cornette also talked about why he initially hated Triple H.

Cornette on his encounter with Bischoff during Table for 3.

“Eric did not remember why we had only spoken once in 24 years. At the top of the Table for 3, I reminded him of that and we did a little jousting back-and-forth and then we got onto other topics and Michael was an excellent moderator. We talked for an hour-and-a-half and I understand that the program goes about half of that time so I don’t know if it is going to be a two-parter or I don’t know if it is going to be cut up or what and I really don’t know when it is going to air. There was some tension, but at the end Eric and I managed to bond over our mutual hatred for the biggest idiot in the history of wrestling, Vince Russo. So the enemy of my enemy is my friend and Eric and I were able to come to an agreement regardless of what we thought of each other in the past.”

Cornette on why he initially hated Triple H.

“I didn’t like HHH for 15 years because of the curtain call. I thought he was a piece of shit for exposing the business along with his butt-buddies. He was the junior member at the time and Michaels and Nash were the ring leaders sand Ramon, but by the same token now, HHH, and remember when I said the enemy of my enemy is my friend, HHH is now responsible or NXT, which is the most pro wrestling like, pro wrestling promotion on a big budget level in the world today, so people can change and things change. I would be a stubborn prick, which, of course, I am, but I’d be a stubborn prick if I didn’t say, well, he may have done some bullshit before but now guys like The Revival wouldn’t have a chance. The Revival is the best tag team in wrestling and I love the Briscoes in Ring of Honor and I was huge fans of Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli when they were The Kings of Wrestling. I thought they were the modern version of the Midnight Express, but right now The Revival is the best tag team in wrestling and NXT has the best pro wrestling presentation of big budget wrestling, Ring of Honor being a close second, in the business.”

Cornette also mentioned how there are plans for him to be in more WWE Network programming.
