Cornette, the legendary manager, made comments regarding a current NWA wrestler and has been removed from his role in the promotion.
Jim Cornette Resigns From Role With NWA
Jim Cornette, who has made a name for himself over several decades with his comments, has resigned from his position within the NWA.
Cornette stated on NWA Powerr that “Trevor Murdoch is the only person who can strap a bucket of fried chicken to his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia. Trevor Murdoch can take care of himself.”
The promotion pulled the episode to edit out Cornette’s comments. They released a statement including Cornette’s resignation and new procedures to review programming before it goes on the air.
On tonight’s episode of NWA Power airing on November 19th 2019, one of our talents made comments which some viewers found offensive. We deeply regret the error and apologize.
We have temporarily taken the program down while we correct this error.

“Effective immediately: Jim Cornette has resigned from the National Wrestling Alliance,” the statement read. “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.

Cornette teased his upcoming podcast episode saying that “if you like hearing stupid people told what they can do with their stupidity” you should tune in.
Morning everybody! Heard any good jokes lately?
This coming Friday’s Jim Cornette Experience (wherever you find your favorite podcasts) is liable to be a good one if you like hearing stupid people told what they can do with their stupidity.
