I don't agree with everything Corny says, but it's part of his charm, haha. His mouth is what enabled him and the people he managed to draw money back in the day when the business was still heavily reliant on ticket revenue. I largely prefer the product of his day to what the promotions are putting on TV now (the current product was lousy even before any COVID restrictions entered the picture).

One of the tricky parts about the wrestling business is how a person can extend his or her career beyond taking bumps in the ring by acting as a manager, match agent, ambassador, etc. Also, many of the ex-wrestlers either didn't make great money or didn't manage the money they made too well, so they hold something back in shoot interviews because they don't want to tick off anyone who might give them another job. Cornette is financially secure enough that he doesn't need to kiss up to anyone in the business, so he says exactly what he's thinking.
He put himself in a position where he was always making good money off of the shows and he obviously saved some of it. He could sure come up with some hilarious stuff in his rants when he was managing. You can't find a better historian of the business than Cornette.

Agree with you wholeheartedly that the old time stuff is far superior.

I don't subscribe to him, but he's a character. The one of him commenting on Steve Gadd's drum solo in "Aja" was funny. Here are some of my favorites:

Haircut Harry - haircuts around the world, filmed by "Mystery Woman"
kitboga - IMO, the unchallenged king of scamming the phone scammers.
irlRosie - anti-scammer and incredible voice talent. Does a great Siri
James Veitch - scamming the email scammers with a hysterical skewed British sensibility
Advanced Chiropractic Relief - feel that ring-dinger all the way down? Crack addicts gonna love you. Yes, ma'am!
Rob Brown - drumming tips
Mike Johnston - drumming tips
Foresty Forest - outdoors self-sufficient enthusiast who lives out of his minivan camper, complete with solar panels, battery storage, and a functioning kitchen. His attempt to drive to the Arctic circle was breathtaking.
Haircut Harry is great. Your Houston chiropractor, Dr. Gregory Johnson at Advanced Chiropractic Relief is good, too, but he can go off the deep end on his political opinions sometimes.

I like...

Chris Stuckmann - movie reviewer, but doesn't get too fanboyish or play up a character. Just a normal guy. Akron resident, too.

Binging with Babish - cooking, sometimes attempts to make foods seen in movies, ie the prison sauce from Goodfellas or a Krabby Patty. Has that irreverent back of the house sense of humor.

Deer Meat for Dinner - hunting/fishing. Cooks everything he kills.

A Better Official - Basketball referee who comments on high school footage

Ali Spagnola - music production, sometimes combines songs with different song styles, like what would Baby Shark sound like as a Lady Gaga song?

Legal Eagle - lawyer giving his perspective on current events, sometimes comments on law-related movies and laws broken in movies like Batman, Willie Wonka, or Jurassic Park.

Now You See It - movie analysis focusing on theme and meaning.

Lessons from the Screenplay - movie analysis focusing on screenwriting.

Every Frame a Painting - movie analysis focusing on visuals and cinematography

Haha. I'm not a fan of "Starmaker" Bolin.

Another podcast/youtube channel I'm enjoying is "What Happened When", a.k.a. WHW which starred former longtime WCW play-by-play commentator Tony Schiavone. It hasn't been in production for awhile, but I recently stumbled upon it and am slowly working my way through the episodes. It's interesting to get his perspective on where certain booking angles came from, how poorly operated WCW was, and why Vince McMahon was able to win the promotional war in the long run. On many of the episodes, they talk about specific PPVs or Nitro episodes with Schiavone providing hilarious play-by-play for particular matches. Schiavone is basically a dirty old man.

I've been on YouTube since the beginning and have subbed to over 300+ Channels over the years. I love all sorts of things bands channels for the newest music videos. World, US, music, movie and gaming history. Various NFL YouTubers, podcasts like Joe Rogan. Marble racing circuit, A bunch of critics of various media. Psychology and sociology channels. Like, one or two Let's Play channels. YouTube is probably my main source of media intake.

My favorite channel isn't active anymore, and only has a few uploads, but it's REALLY GOOD.
Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.
