SOURCE SPORTS: Jim Cornette Resigns From Upstart NWA Wrestling After Recent Racial Comments Jason Cordner November 22, 2019 Source Sports | News, Highlights and Interviews Billy Corgan’s revitalized NWA promotion launched their NWA Powerrr YouTube series to some early positive reviews. Unfortunately, the biggest crossover into wider consciousness came Tuesday when their latest episode was pulled after viewers pointed out an impossibly stupid line from commentator Jim Cornette. During the episode, Cornette called Trevor Murdoch “the only man I’ve ever known that can strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia.” “Trevor Murdoc is the only person I know who can strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and ride across Ethiopia” Jim Cornette tonight lol 🤦🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️ #nwapowerrr pic.twitter.com/2SnJnb1cPD— Niko Exxtra (@NikoExxtra) November 20, 2019 The episode was originally uploaded to YouTube with the comment included, but it was later taken down, and an edited version replaced it. NWA World Champion Nick Aldis, who was facing Murdoch at the time, released his own statement condemning Cornette’s remark: I'm sorry for the inappropriate remarks and am glad to see they have been promptly edited out. I hope this is the first and last time an episode of #NWAPowerrr is overshadowed by something like this. My two cents: pic.twitter.com/42Mo5jvauJ— What's causin' Aldis (@RealNickAldis) November 20, 2019 The 58-year-old Cornette is a long-time veteran of the wrestling business in several different capacities. Most notably, he held several positions with WWE from 1993-2005, including a stint as the head of Ohio Valley Wrestling, which was WWE’s developmental territory at the time. The comments weren’t need or warranted considering neither wrestler was of African decent. Just another example of white humor gone off the rails.
