For decades, legendary wrestling manager Jim Cornette was rarely seen without his signature accessory, a tennis racket.
But until yesterday, Cornette had only used the racket to clobber people upside the head when referees were distracted.
After playing his first-ever game of tennis — a round of mixed doubles at a country club in Tampa — Cornette reportedly “didn’t care for the sport.”
“It’s a bit tedious,” he told friends after the game.
“You spend the whole time chasing and hitting a ball, trying to make your opponents miss it. Why wouldn’t you just hop over the net and hit your opponents in the head with the racket? That makes more sense to me.”
