Early Life Biography:

Jim Cornette was born in Louisville, Kentucky. He loved wrestling so much that he reportedly installed a ten-foot antenna on top of his house as a youth so he could watch as much regional wrestling as possible. Jim Cornette began working at wrestling events at the age of 14, serving as a photographer, ring announcer, timekeeper, magazine correspondent, and public relations correspondent.

Jim Cornette came to know promoter Christine Jarrett, the mother of Jerry Jarrett, promoter of the Continental Wrestling Association. His undisturbed dedication was such that he timed television shows with a stopwatch and would present her with typed formats for every show.

Personal Life:

Cornette and his girlfriend, Stacey Goff, were married on October 31, 2007. Stacey was previously a manager in Cornette’s OVW promotion under the ring name Synn. Stacey or let’s say Synn, was the OVW manager of future WWE Champion Batista. Jim Cornette is an atheist and is highly critical of religion.

He has a criminal record, which includes a number of assaults, mostly stemming from incidents involving fights with fans who attacked him while he was a manager in the 1980s. This record has made it difficult for him to work in Canada, which resulted in him being sadly turned away from the Canadian border in November 2010.

Although that was quite an interesting set of information, the rest of his personal life is kept very personal indeed.
