Jim Cornette Resigns From the NWA

The NWA released a statement saying that NWA Powerrr color commentator Jim Cornette has resigned from the company.


November 20, 2019

Effective immediately: Jim Cornette has resigned from the National Wrestling Alliance. As an announcer on the November 19th edition of NWA Power, Jim made remarks during a singles match between Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch that were both offensive and do not meet the high standards of decency and good faith of the National Wrestling Alliance.

To ensure that such an error can never happen again, we’ve established new procedures of review for all NWA programming going forward.

We sincerely regret our failure in this regard.

This comes after Cornette and the NWA received backlash from some people for a comment that Cornette made during an episode of NWA Powerrr that was released yesterday. While on commentary, Cornette said, “Trevor Murdoch is the only man that I’ve ever known that can strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia.”

The NWA temporarily removed the episode from YouTube, then re-released it a couple of hours later with Cornette’s comments removed.
