That's all she wrote for Jim Cornette in the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), folks!
The National Wrestling Alliance issued a statement following Tuesday night's episode of NWA Powerrr to confirm the release of Jim Cornette after his racially insensitive remarks made during the broadcast.
NationalWrestlingAlliance.com issued the following statement regarding the issue:
"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.
