During a recent edition of the Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Cornette praised Pillman Jr. and was also impressed by MJF's classic heel antics from the show.
"Brian, once again, looked like he's got some balls and came out and did something about something. So, overall, I thought, you know, this is going well so far for both these guys."
While Cornette seemed quite impressed by the character work shown, he was critical of the fact that there was a slight delay in reaction from the Superstars.
Cornette then went on to mention that Pillman Jr. needs to show more of an attempt to get closer to getting his hands on MJF than he already has.
"Maybe on this, instead of him coming in with the chair, he should've just come in to where he could actually just plant MJF with one shot. Plant him down in the corner and then Wardlow could come in and distract him or whatever. Because that what was the one thing when he came in with the chair and MJF s**ts and drops and begs back in the corner, Brian had to do a little vamping and not hit him before Wardlow got back. So I agree with you that Brian needs to make more of an effort, more of an attempt to get closer even to getting his hands on MJF that he has been so far."
