Yesterday, NWA was forced to pull an episode of Power after Jim Cornette suffered another case of foot-in-mouth disease. During the match between Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch, Cornette said that Murdoch was the only man who:
“could strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and drive a motor scooter across Ethiopia”
This went down about as well as a fart in an elevator and it forced NWA to quickly pull the episode of Power and re-release it with the offending commentary removed. But it didn’t end there.
Vice President of NWA, David Lagana, had this to say on Twitter;
On tonight’s episode of NWA Powerr 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.
And current champion Nick Aldis also added his two cents;
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:
Cornette himself has been quiet on the whole situation but when the Vice President of the company you work for, and that companies champion, are unhappy about what happened then you have to wonder what the future holds for Jim Cornette within the NWA.
