The NWA edits latest episode and apologizes for remark made

Originally published at

The NWA received backlash from Tuesday’s airing of Power as the group pulled down the show and has edited out an offensive remark by Jim Cornette.

During the match between Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch, Cornette used a line stating:

Trevor Murdoch is mad, bad and dangerous to know. He’s the only man that I’ve ever known that can strap a bucket of fried chicken around his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia. Trevor Murdoch can take care of himself.

The show streamed on the promotion’s YouTube and Facebook channels but was pulled after its airing with Executive Vice President David Lagana issuing a statement apologizing for the remark being left in the broadcast:

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.

The episode has been edited with the line by Cornette muted.

Does this mean NWA themselves think it is not offensive? Amateurs

I mean it isn’t a live show and the line made it through the editing process so safe to say they don’t.

I mean there are 7 billion people on this planet and on this lot a lot of them have internet. You are always going to offend a portion of them no matter what you say. We are in an era where you have to be careful with every word you say because there’s a community in New Zealand or some people in Bulgaria who were offended. It’s just impossible to express yourself nowadays without having the boomerang coming back into your face from whatever corner of the world. I’m not excusing Cornette, I’m just saying.

Yes, this is true. And Cornette is known for his “colourful” language. The NWA felt some heat and responded. At the end of the day, every company will come down on an employee that brings them bad publicity. We could debate all day, but this was a business decision. Corny is mixing stereotypes about impoverished counties with American stereotypes about blacks.

I dont know, plenty of tv shows/movies/other entertainment with a much wider audience than NWA POWER manage to have daily and weekly shows without saying shitty things and offending people.

Hopefully Cornette smartens up and nwa hires some better quality control.

Yes, of course there are a lot of tv shows like that, thank god. Cornette just gets easily carried away.
