NWA Announces That Jim Cornette Has Resigned Effective Immediately

The National Wrestling Alliance issued the following statement this morning announcing that color-commentator Jim Cornette has resigned from the NWA following backlash over his racially insensitive comments on yesterday’s episode of Powerrr. Details are below.

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.
