Joey Ryan Flips Mr. Socko and Cornette Isn’t Happy
The always outspoken Jim Cornette is not happy that Joey Ryan used his viral ‘flip’ move on Mick Foley at a recent Over The Top Wrestling event.
“Sad to see a real star stooping to give credibility to an asswipe nobody like this,” Tweeted the legendary wrestling manager.

The comical move occurred after Foley tried to use Mr. Socko on Ryan, but couldn’t overcome his ‘strength’ and ‘stiffness.’ Ryan then flipped the WWE Hall of Famer to get the victory.

Cornette is critical of the move because it breaks kayfabe and makes wrestling look silly. The pair have traded comments and now also have a personal disliking of each other.

Ric Flair Names Current Greatest Wrestlers
In a recent interview with GameSpot Ric Flair revealed who he thinks are the current greatest wrestlers in the world.
He named Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, and his daughter Charlotte.
“Randy Orton, A.J. Styles, my daughter [Charlotte], and Seth Rollins. I didn’t even have to think twice about that. Orton is just one of the most gifted guys I’ve ever seen. Orton brings the whole package. He’s 6’4″, phenomenal body, he’s a good talker and a phenomenal in-ring performer. Seth Rollins is the same, just a little bit smaller. A.J. is close to being Sean Michaels in terms of work ethic. He’s really good and his interviews have gotten better. And then, my daughter…I’m not pushing her. She doesn’t need me to push her. You’ve seen her, she’s real good. The other girls just have a hard time keeping up with her.”
Flair also discussed not having any debilitating injuries from his time in the ring:
“It’s amazing. I’ve got a genetic gift, I think. In the length of my career, I cracked C5 and 6 in my neck, but the technology wasn’t such back then. That was like ’89, so there was no surgery for it. But I was lucky enough it healed itself. What people will never understand is I had to wrestle every night…There was no going home on vacation. And then, I broke myself in an airplane crash, in three places, in 1975. That laid me up for a while, about six or seven months. I was lucky enough to come back from that. And then, I’ve had two rotator cuffs. You know, I’ve had my knees drained and that, but otherwise I feel great. It’s funny. I could wrestle right now. They won’t let me, but I’m ready for any kind of action.”
