i remember asking a while ago if we could have an nwa general to keep up with all the updates about the brand
not getting a clear response from the mods, i decided to make my own thread, with blackjack and hookers

he has a very subtle way to book things which works on the lung run but sadly there's not that much buzz around the nwa now that aew is getting so over doing basically the opposite
not that i dislike (most of) aew's booking, a thing can be good for many different reasons, but i still feel like aldis is a really underlooked champion

I don't know shit about modern NWA, is it still an organization made out of multiple promotions or is it just it's own single promotion now is it even related to the old NWA or are they just using the same name for branding purposes?

its a bit hard to explain
its not a promotion, its basically just a brand represented by its champions, sometimes they have their own shows but most of the exposition you can get comes from other companies or the youtube channel
apparently billie is looking for a tv deal, but we know nothing about that yet

Corgan decided that the NWA franchisees were not people he wanted to do business with. I think the current organisation is just Corgan and Dave Lagana - if they have a third employee, it's Nick Aldis, but I think the relationship with him is more like a partnership. There are some other recurring characters like Tim Storm and Jocephus. Cornette has been an enthusiastic supporter and his NWA work is his best in recent years.

The NWA's current model is to take wrestlers who are under-appreciated on the indies and showcase them in a series on YouTube. Match footage comes from promotions that the NWA is working with - typically Championship Wrestling From Hollywood or Ring of Honor. Corgan has put the NWA brand on a couple of shows so far, with the most recent being a revival of the Crockett Cup in partnership with ROH, but isn't rushing to run shows on his own. In some ways, it resembles what Anthem is trying to do with Impact, with a more obscure but less tainted brand and a smaller platform.

What would you rather have?

The current reality with Billy Corgan taking over the NWA

or the reality where he buys TNA... so he has the TV deal to pull off his vision, but its with 2016-2017 TNA brand value (and probably still features Magnus, James Storm and Sam Shaw)

intresting question

i'd probably go with 2016-17 tna if it means that he's replacing dixie carter
and if not, its still an appetizing idea
tna at the time despite its flaws was far from a bad show, but it had a very contrasting vision to what corgan seems to like in his booking
plus its sad to see a guy like nick aldis who has really grew on me as a champion not be featured in a proper program in the current state, especially if they have to work with companies like current ring of honor, that otherwise has no appeal whatsoever to me
plus, it may be the alternative timeline where eli drake gets the push he seemingly was supposed to get all along
yeah, i'd say impact >>>>> roh/cwfh

Surely he must have known this? Like I'm sure NXT would throw him money just because, but he rustled a lot of jimmies there before and has proven with this whole Tessa/intergender thing that he's not really a company man. He's also admitted he doesn't even like wrestling smaller guys either.

He'd offer absolutely nothing to AEW either. Dude might be great on the mic, but no one has ever said 'I can't wait to watch Eli Drake wrestle'

i feel like he's been a mix of unlucky and a mark for himselfto end up in this situation
he was green in the ring for a long time but now he's trimmed the botches and wrestles competently a very old school brawling style, for my tastes at least
impact pulled the trigger on him at the wrong moment not capitalizing on his growing popularity and that's really not his fault but his reasons to leave were really sketchy so good riddance to that
i dont know how much NWA pays but i hope they can use him the way he was intended to, there's lot of potential in him and corgan seems like the right guy for the job
but if he SOMEHOW manages to piss him off as well that's three companies now that blacklisted him
lets pray for the best

it's more complicated than that
there were really many factors that ruined his reign
impact was very dry on babyfaces that could cut a promo at the time and no feud he had felt that intresting as a consequence, plus he still couldn't really carry it in the ring to compensate
they gave him chris masters as a henchman so he became a chickenshit that lost non title matches all the time
and the angle he had with cornette died because cornette left one month in
it was the wrong time because he felt like an afterthought, not because he wasn't hot

I'd rather see Corgan plucking someone from obscurity than signing Eli Drake. Nothing against Eli, I just feel that if the NWA is going to work out they need to find more guys like Jocephus rather than trying to compete with WWE and AEW for known quantities.

Bruce took control of the NWA around the time of their second feud. Basically, he sued (keep in mind that Bruce is a shoot lawyer... and magician, I think) the owners of the NWA at the time for insurance fraud, and accepted the brand itself as compensation. The idea was that he was saving the brand by getting it away from the guys who were ruining it for short-term pocket-lining.

Bruce did ok but he just didn't have the resources or connections Billy does. When he first took over he wanted to get national tv, and all that. At the very least, he kept it stable until Billy got there.

The NJPW agreement had nothing to do with talent at that time though. NJPW just let those guys work their shows in exchange for control of the NWA titles, so Gedo could mark out by putting them on his guys. That deal ended as soon as NJPW got bored of the belts.

Corgan nixed the territorial affiliates (which was a totally outdated concept anyway).

He says he's rebuilding the NWA brand. They've only put on a handful of actual NWA shows in the past few years. Most of their exposure comes from defending the NWA Championship in other promotions (like at All In last year) and YouTube videos.

It seemed like Corgan wanted to build to NWA doing supercards with wrestlers representing various promotions, but never quite got there.

It seemed to me that buying Impact was a consolation prize he bought for himself after losing TNA.

Daily DDT spoke with Nick Aldis to get his candid thoughts on why the NWA is destination viewing, what led to his departure from IMPACT, why WWE is no longer his endgame, almost signing with AEW earlier this year, and much more.

this is long, here are some highlights: https://dailyddt.com/2019/07/18/nick-aldis-aew-impact-wrestling-nwa/
>I was looking and felt that every wrestling company was going after the same audience. Everyone was going after the discerning fan that’s a lifer for wrestling, and I think that numbers have proven that if you cater to that fan base, you lose the rest. I think there’s a sweet spot where you can satisfy everyone.

>The proliferation of social media and wrestling fans’ insatiable appetite for opinion to bring down the number one wrestling leads to a culture that unfortunately can exclude a lot of the more casual fans and I think that’s necessarily fair.

>I don’t think any one person’s dollar is more valuable than another’s, but I cherish and respect the fans that just watch once a week and don’t engage in social media about it and don’t write blogs about it and talk with other fans about it just as much as I do those fans.

>I can tell you for a fact that TNA and in particular Dixie [Carter] had a hugely disproportionate view of what the Twitter conversation represented in the wider audience because they represented at the time one-third of our overall audience.

>Around 2010-2011, the product told them “All that stuff you liked that made TNA unique? You don’t want that anymore.” And we lost them. We never got them back. Twitter is very easy to manipulate to make it look like you’re doing better than you really are. “Look, we’re trending!”

>It’s not equally converted to Pay-Per-View buys and merchandise buys and things like that. What it can do is maintain loyalty with a portion of our audience is creates a false sense of security and a bit of a pathway to laziness and that’s certainly what happened with IMPACT.
...

>I’ll tell you the truth: I was made an offer by AEW. I counter-offered with, “I’d like to be able to do both.” I’d like to work with them because obviously I have great admiration for Cody and the Bucks for what they’ve been able to do. But I wasn’t prepared to walk away from the two years of work I’ve done with the NWA. And that was that. I left it open with, “If you can find a way to keep doing this and do your show, I’ll do your show.”

>They essentially wanted to offer me a contract and have me walk away from what I’m doing here and I said that doesn’t make any sense to me. Really, there’s no reason to. It’s just a hangover from the way things have always been done. Obviously, we hear this “Change the World” phrase a lot, but that was my pitch to them. “If you really want to change the world, why can’t we do that?”

>Because that really would be a change for one guy to work there but also come here. I’m still on very good terms with Cody and the Bucks and I had a very nice conversation with Tony [Khan] and everyone was aware of it. Billy and Dave were aware of it.

>At the time, my stance was if I can do both, then I’ll do it and I think that as it shakes out and everyone starts to realize the demand that will be on them with cable TV and stuff like that, those possibilities will be way more apparent in the next coming year for some guys.
....

>Before we knew it, we had this sort of thing where I was going to defend the title on four different continents in one year and then suddenly you realize we achieved what we wanted to do with the NWA which was the traditional values with a modern delivery system.

>I could be the traveling champion and put it out there with Ten Pounds of Gold and documented it and put it out in different ways like packages instead of going, “Here are the results, he defended the title here, blah blah blah.” We show clips and we made packages. We showed me traveling all over the world. That’s just effort. That’s not money.

>Okay, there’s a little bit of money involved and Dave Lagana just so happened to fly with me and bring all of his equipment and shoot and edit everything, but Dave’s running the company. Compared to hiring a sound stage and getting a load of people and a load of wrestlers and a load of events, the cost of that is minimal, but we were amount to able create something that was a body of work. Not just me, but the entire NWA that is now usable and can be built off of.

>It puts us in a very strong position, especially now we head into the rest of the year with AEW and WWE moving to FOX. There’s going to be some real monumental shifts happening in the entire business. Ring of Honor is going to be in trouble and IMPACT is going to be in trouble and it’s no secret that there’s only so many hours in a day they can spend watching wrestling and only so many dollars they can spend, they’re going to make a decision.
...
>I had a big hand in bringing Eli Drake into the NWA. He had at least two other offers, one from one of the companies you mentioned, and one from Ring of Honor. Dave made his pitch and Dave asked me to call him and basically tell him my experience because Eli saw what we had done with me and said, “I want that.” Why wouldn’t you? I called him and we had a good talk and I told him what I thought this could be for him long-term.

>He’s a few years older than me, he’s 36 and I’m 32 and I’ve always had one eye on the future post-wrestling and I’m sure he kind of has that too because he’s a creative guy, he’s a smart guy with a good business brain and I’m sure he wants to have an option or at least the opportunity to work in behind-the-scenes role going forward if he wants to do that and it’s a seat at the table.
...
>I’m just going to say it. I have a vision of eventually headlining Starrcade with the ten pounds of gold on the line, but Starrcade currently belongs to WWE. That to me would be the pinnacle, my crowning achievement for the body of work I’ve done with this with this brand and this championship. To me, the two perfect-world opponents for that would be Randy Orton or Triple H, based on the historical significance of it.

Guessing Corgan is still trying to work out a TV deal, hence none announced.
If they can't get it, the best route would be YouTube.
The footage has to air before it gets too old like how GFW couldn't figure out they had to air their shows for people to go to them.

If Lagana's interview is anything to go by, they were looking at doing something for BR Live, so maybe they're still trying to use digital to raise their profile.

he's in a tag team with Bayley's husband. mainly works the Texas indies, based out of Austin. He did a tour of DDT in the spring.

He was on the NWA 70th Anniversary PPV last fall in the National Title tourney, he got to have a promo segment with Jim Cornette. Lagana has been raving about his vignettes since last fall & he definitely puts work into his promo skills: https://youtu.be/QmAk3jzqs1E

Seems to embody a similar philosophy to Eli Drake: what's most important to a wrestler is a look and an ability to talk.

I was really enjoying the character pieces of Tim Storm and his opponents last year, but instantly lost interest when Nick Aldis became champion because the guy is bland as hell.

With Impact Wrestling getting better and WWE being the top show there's only so much time I can dedicate to watching wrestling...

Oh well, I do wish the company the best.

> the NWA announced that former NWA tag team champions the Rock N Roll Express will be appearing at the October 1 TV tapings. As previously reported, the team was recently announced to make their NJPW debut at Fighting Spirit Unleashed.

>The National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and Billy Corgan tweeted out a new logo for the promotion for the upcoming TV tapings in Atlanta, Georgia on September 30 and October 1 this month. You can check out the new logo and Corgan’s full statement below:
"Georgia, The National Wrestling Alliance is coming home to you. Which is why we’ve gone out of our way to make this very special logo the flagship symbol for our upcoming television tapings in Atlanta, September 30th and October 1st. I have so much history with the area, from recording Siamese Dream in Marietta in 1992 and 93, to those Saturday mornings watching the Nature Boy tear it up from Techwood Studios. And here we’ll be just down the block, a stone’s throw away from those vaunted days, at GPB studios in front of 154 strong. I can guarantee that our shows we’ll be like no other currently out there, and in my opinion that’s the best way to honor the legacy of the NWA; by pushing forward while always honoring the past. We hope you’ll be there to join us!"

Rosa played Kobra Moon on Lucha Underground. She's done a few shots with ROH and she's on WOW on AXS playing a character similar to Kobra Moon

Ashley Vox is a Chikara wrestler, part of the Sea Stars tag team and does stuff with Beyond, Rise, Shine.

Dave Lagana worked with Chikara in between WWE & TNA and produced their first iPPVs, so he'll always have some loyalty there. Likewise, that's probably why Marti is there: the Dollhouse was a Lagana-Corgan era TNA faction.

and speaking of Corgan-era TNA ...

To promote the upcoming tapings, this week's episode of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood has a bunch of NWA talent on loan, including James Storm, Nick Aldis, Allysin Kay, and Ricky Starks.

David Marquez, the self-professed "king of studio wrestling", has been producing CWH for over a decade and is also the producer of NWA's tapings next week so I'm sure there two shows will look similar.

With less than a week to go before the tapings start, I find it hilarious and sad that they still haven't sold out either show, considering that it's in a TV studio with only about 300 seats.

Warning this is:
>SEScoops
but
>The National Wrestling Alliance has been negotiating with WWE to bring the new NWA studio series to the WWE Network, but the deal is now on hold indefinitely.

>SEScoops has learned that the NWA pulled the trigger on the project expecting to close the deal with WWE. The working plan was for NWA TV to be part of the upcoming WWE Network revamp, which will include various “tiers” and programming from independent promotions.

>Without a deal in place, the NWA jumped the gun by announcing tapings. The company has yet to announce a distribution channel for the show.

>Things fell apart when WWE shifted its short-term focus from the tiered WWE Network strategy to the expansion of NXT, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. With NXT moving to the USA Network as a live 2-hour weekly broadcast, we’re told plans to ramp up the tiered network concept have been delayed.

>The NWA was put in a tough spot by the WWE Network deal falling through. The company signed some talent to 90-day deals, contracted with a studio to film, went public with everything. Backing out of the studio tapings would be very damaging for the NWA, as Billy Corgan and Dave Lagana have painstaking rebuild the brand’s prestige.

>With the initial plan scrapped, the NWA began shopping around the show to various television networks. Unfortunately, there was minimal interest.

>WGN America told Billy Corgan he could pay for a time slot, but otherwise they were not interested. There were talks with AXS TV, but those fell through after the sale to Anthem. There were even talks with Joe Koff about bringing NWA TV to Ring of Honor’s Honor Club streaming service. However, the NWA felt a deal with ROH would do more harm than good for the big picture and their hopes of landing a deal with WWE down the road.

>Dave Lagana is exploring the option of NWA TV airing primarily on YouTube, but they are aware this is not a viable source for the ad revenue needed to support the project. This predicament has led the NWA to reign in its budget.

>A smaller California group is talking with the NWA about the possibility of airing the studio show on smaller over-the-air-channels on a station-by-station basis, similar to WWE’s syndication approach in the 1980’s. The problem with this scenario is that the NWA would be on the hook for selling their own ads with no rights fee involved.

>The first NWA TV studio tapings are scheduled for September 30th and October 1st.

The roster is fine, the whole throwback studio thing is just weird in 2019. We'll see how long that lasts, but at least Billy isn't giving up so quickly. I'm sure he'd prefer a proper TV deal, in a proper wrestling venue, rather than this getup. At least there's a crowd though, it's not the dark days of AWA.

Because beggars can't be choosers. All of these alliances between these promotions are ultimately short lived while promotions try to stabilize themselves.

Its just history repeating itself; whether its the "Pro Wrestling USA" alliance between JCP & the AWA, the JCP-UWF partnership that turned into a buyout or the Memphis/AWA/World Class merger. They all always end with the most powerful promotion fucking over the lesser ones. Thats just how business works.

There's no incentive for AEW or WWE to work with the NWA. I can't help but wonder if Billy's ultimate endgame is to flip the NWA tape library and trademarks and sell them to WWE.

I mean NWA is doing the same thing that Impact is doing with being open to working with any promotion, well except with each other that is, and it's been working for Impact well since it helps with cutting costs on production while giving indie promotions, AAA, and NOAH their wrestlers to book for their shows. But you're right that there would be no incentive for WWE to work with NWA except for wanting to buy the trademarks and tape library since those have value. Maybe AEW would considering Cody had worked with them when he was with ROH last year but I can't see that happening given that they're focused on building their own stars and titles now. I think ROH is the only promotion that would have anything to gain in working with NWA but they just ended their relationship in July but I suppose the door is open to working with them again.

but any promotion with national tv or attempts to get on national tv are going to be cutthroat

I don't, thats why I said "I think" I also don't hate Cody, he's my favorite part of AEW so far.

Its my understanding that the Elite guys booked their own stuff for ALL IN and the scenario unfolded (including Cody returning the favor at NWA 70) seems very similar to how it used to be done in territory days when the local hero would get a quickie reign with the title

oh I'm sure Billy appreciated the exposure. But again that was the Elite's event. They didn't need Billy/the NWA to sell ALL IN. They weren't doing him a favor; if they didn't care, then why would they book it? This was also when they were still in ROH/NJPW and trying to leverage this into bigger deals; Cody giving himself a freelance world title certainly helped give him a little bit more boost.

I'm with Netjester on this one.
What's wrong with them doing that?
Youtube is the biggest video platform on the web.
They will get ad revenue or do direct advertising on YT to gain more views.
If shitty "news" shows like The Young Turks can sustain a presence and make money I don't see why a wrestling promotion can't.
It all depends on the people behind the camera and their willingness to work the Youtube system as hard as they fucking can and keep people coming back.

the brand, set and graphics, quality of the production, and announce team make powerrr a cut above other modern ventures of its sort. plus there's the getting in on the ground level appeal, which only in power can coexist with an appeal to nostalgia. no matter if they saw powerrr or cwfh first, powerrr (based on a whopping one episode) comes across as better.

here's the secret about CWFH: the wrestling is just not good and not even in a "it's not supposed to be good" kind of way.

when were the last times Mack, Cage or Pearce worked for CFWH tho? Chris Bey for example got more for this month's stretch of working 205 Live, ROH, Impact and GCW

its a good thing that CFWH exists and Marquez is great but its not a place where breakout talents get talked about for whatever reason. Even if its focused on being a studio show thats about characters and promos, instead of workrate, its just missing some little things that give it that spark. Powerrr is able to fill in those details better. Hell, MLW & Impact take a lot of the studio wrestling ethos and add a shine to it.

I'm not trying to dump on CFWH; its mostly limited by its budget and SoCal's wrestling scene, which for whatever reason has never been as vibrant or prolific as the northeast or midwest.

Anyone saying that here is tone-deaf. While things like that do happen, it only takes 10 seconds to hear the clip and understand that what he said was unacceptable. Even if you personally think it's funny, you can probably admit to yourself that the line in question would not fly on TV in 2019, and thus shouldn't fly on a Youtube show that has intentions of making it to TV soon.

Reasonable, it just strikes me as really odd how fast the response was after it first aired. Before there even was major outrage, as far as I know. For something that was filmed, edited, and cleared ahead of time.

I think the simplest answer was Lagana and whoever else didn't even think anything about the line until it very clearly pissed a lot of people off.

>Before there even was major outrage, as far as I know.
does Powerrr have an audience outside of twitter and the youtube/FB video comments? the show's marketing is driven by social media and if they're having a PR crisis over social media, they have no other outlets to address it

Usually, when something racist happens in the world of wrestling, there are a slew of wrestlers speaking out about it. That's not happening here, probably because it's just manufactured outrage, which goes away when ignored.

90% of these people already had a beef with cornette to begin with, they're adding nothing new to what they already spout on a weekly basis
look at fucking pic related, they don't care that cornette said something "controversial" or "questionable", cornette is the biggest libtard in wrestling today, if you bothered to listen to his podcast you'd know that, the real reason this is happening is that a guy who worked in the industry for 30 years thinks their stuff sucks ass and they will jump at every occasion they get to remind you what an awful guy he is because of that
it's not about "being suitable for tv" or being "socially acceptable", that's something that should concern NWA and NWA only

It's just a dumb hacky joke that does not help the NWA in any fashion. Go be a "anti outrage culture, 1st Amendment crusader" somewhere else. cornette's not going to jail, he's not being sentenced to execution. He lost a job because he made a bad joke that would reflect badly on potential investors, tv stations and sponsors. Welcome to capitalism; feel free to stop watching Powerrr if you're so pissed off, but you don't need to dig your heels into defending a dumb joke just because you're so annoyed with the other side

see, that's the thing, he made the joke, but people who edit the show had to see this, NWA could have easily edited it out, announcer botches or mishaps are common in taped shows, it shouldnt have been a problem
he should not be held accountable for something the company he works for approved to be released to the public, and the reason he lost his job was not because what he said was so bad that he deserves to be fired, it was really not, he lost the job because people cannot handle the idea of him being able to get away with saying the thing he said

Powerrr is watched by a very small fraction of people in the first place. They can't afford any bad press while they're trying to promote a PPV, a new batch of TV tapings, and secure a real TV deal.

Lagana & Corgan fucked up because they wanted Cornette & the notoriety he brings but 1.) couldn't actually control him to be on his best behavior 2.) didn't edit out an obviously hack joke 3.) thought the hack joke would be edgy but didn't expect it to be "that edgy"

They messed up the most and look the most cynical. Because they wanted "cornette controversy" but actually take the real heat that comes with it.

don't regularly pay attention to Zane but this is pretty spot-on IMO. Its a shame that Cornette has double-down on all of this stuff because it overshadows the merits he still has to offer. I don't even know the context of that clip of him using the N word; I think its from some fan meet-up in the 90s where he was telling a story of how he got cheap heat and started a riot?

It's going to take time and genuine contrition (thats better than what Hulk Hogan offered) to even entertain a comeback.

Or ROH brings him back lol.

He's good, but he's not the only good commentator. It's like when Joey Styles found himself in a similar situation. People don't tune into a wrestling show to listen to a commentator. Letting Styles go had zero impact on Beyond, Chikara or Evolve.

If people are tuning in only for your commentator, your wrestling show has a lot wrong with it anyway.

Honestly, I knew Jim would be on borrowed time the moment I heard he was to be an NWA announcer, so it comes as no surprise to me that's he's gone (and the reason why he left). The wrestling world is so different from what he grew up with, so between him saying potentially offensive things on commentary to him being very critical of wrestlers he absolutely detests (it was so weird seeing Cornette and Colt Cabana interact on the last episode), I just knew Cornette wouldn't last.

It's a shame because love or hate Cornette, the guy is one of the best on the microphone.

Between the Cornette controversy, Lagana being the one who approved it, the NWA is in more trouble now.

The fact that this "Kayfabe Cocktail" segment Austin Idol does implies he's roofie-ing women is absolutely horrifying and unacceptable. It's disgusting anyone would approve of this and I hope this shitty show gets cancelled.

Also, he claims to oppose homophobia but aside from his being confused about why Sonny Kiss was allowed to exist without commentators going on about how "weird" he is, he implied Joey Ryan was gay as a way to attack him. And that's without getting into his views on Muslims or women.

Cornette is a piece of shit, through and through, and it's not new.

Cornette wanted out and this was his way to do it without quitting. This way he can blame cancel culture (partially rightfully so). He's said he hates the travel, it's just surprising he only managed to last two tapings.

I think it's disappointing because I was really enjoying Powerrr and Cornette's commentary was one of the positives of the show.

>On the latest episode of The Jim Cornette Experience, the announcer says NWA VP David Lagana called saying they were going to have to apologize because people on Twitter were angry about the comment. Cornette claims he told Lagana that he doesn’t appreciate being grouped into apologies for things he’s not necessarily sorry for, which would seem to explain why the apology and his resignation were released together.

>The 58-year old then explains that jokes about the Ethiopian famine were popular in the ’80s – which is when he first used it – and deconstructs why people should’ve still thought it was funny. “A bucket of chicken sounds funnier, it’s a funnier visual, than a f*cking plate of sushi,” he added.
“It’s a starvation joke, not a race joke,” he continued. “Whether it’s a good joke or a bad joke, it was a joke that has been told on TBS, USA Network, broadcast television stations across America over a variety of locations for the past 30 years.”

>Jim also points out that footage was shot weeks ago and nobody behind the scenes took issue with it. He also says David Lagana told him the comment “passed right by” him while editing the show.
“If when I had said it, the producer – one of whom is Dave Lagana, but there’s a variety of people that can talk to us on our headsets – had said, ‘Awww, Jim. Don’t say that.’ ‘Ok, sorry,'” Cornette states. “If after the show, well we’re gonna have to take out that one joke out, ‘Ok, fine, sorry to make you have extra work.’ If anybody called me up and said, ‘Jim, you told that joke you’ve told a bunch of times, well that’s racist.’ ‘Ok, I didn’t know that.’ Cause I was thinking it was f*cking funny cause the people in Ethiopia were hungry.”

>He then draws comparison to his joke and the Starvin Marvin character on South Park.

>Jim says if NWA had taken some ownership for letting the comment slip through in the editing process, he would have been more on board with things. However, that wasn’t the case and this was starting to no longer be fun for him.

“I’m not that sorry, cause it was a joke. And if you don’t like the joke, that’s fine, and I’d even apologize for a bad joke. But this goddamn feedback was above and beyond the offense. And I didn’t mean it in any racist way, for f*cks sake. I think the people that took it instantly as racist think that must be the only thing on people’s minds when they think of black people and chicken. Which, that’s a whole nother issue that you’ve got. Cause I’m going for Starvin Marvin.”

“I, in no way, was thinking in that direction,” he additionally noted. “To anyone who was legitimately offended by a bad joke in kinda sort of a way and would accept a reasonable apology, as humans sometimes do … yes, I’m sorry. Because I didn’t intend it that way.”

Wouldn't a better joke be "Trevor Murdoch is double tough. He is so tough, you could lather him up in Barbaque Sauce and parachute him into a picnic in Norman, Oklahoma, and he would come out unscathed."

NWA fans will already understand, you don't have to explain to the people watching NWA what famous wrestling personality from Norman, Oklahoma enjoys BBQ. You avoid race comparisons, you get a cute little illusion to JR(who has a strong connection to the NWA.), and its modern version of the "joke".

People clutching their pearls at an Ethiopian famine joke are pretty ridiculous, and I think there are bigger issues to worry about in wrasslin' than insensitive jokes being told by (given it's Cornette, presumably heel?) wrestling announcer. The issue of racism is also not going to be solved by this brigade of corporate political correctness managers and the vocal minority of do-gooders on twitter. Comedians like Bill Hicks won many over to left-wing positions because he wasn't afraid of his speech being policed, and he could go on without a filter. Unfortunately, wrestling's not that same world, but I think people cheering for Cornette's removal on the basis of politics need to understand the limits of PC policing.

People are lashing out at Cornette because they hate Cornette. It doesn't matter what he says. For some reason, a loud group of people want to see him taken down a peg.

People dropped the fact that Orton said the n word, but won't forget this? That makes no sense. It's obvious that most of this backlash is personal in nature.

No new episode of Power this week since Into The Fire is on Saturday but they uploaded the previous James Storm-Nick Aldis match from New Years Clash this past January to show why Storm thinks there's a conspiracy against him in NWA and build up the rematch at Into The Fire - https://t.co/dHb9hiL5oU

Can't help but feel like not having a go home show wasn't the plan pre-Cornette which is a shame. If there are lost episodes of Power I hope we'll see them eventually.

I’m surprised they’re doing another PPV so soon after tonight’s PPV but I guess they’re going to do PPVs on a more frequent basis? Maybe not monthly but like 4 or 5 a year perhaps?
