• Eric Bischoff Reacts To Jim Cornette’s Recent Controversial Remark

During a recent match between NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis and Trevor Murdoch on NWA Powerrr, Jim Cornette said the following on commentary:

“Trevor Murdoch is the only person who can strap a bucket of fried chicken to his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia. Trevor Murdoch can take care of himself!”

Cornette got a lot of heat for this comment on Social Media and he had to resign from NWA.

During a recent edition of After 83 Weeks podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff had the following to say about this situation:

“Jim is a guy that is reluctant to adapt, and it’s really unfortunate because he’s a talented guy, he’s an entertaining guy, and he’s a very knowledgeable guy.

But if you’re not willing to grow and evolve and to understand the implications of some of the things that you do and say and how it affects other people adversely, then you’re going to get put out to pasture. I hope that doesn’t happen with Jim. But apparently that’s kind of what it appears to be.

I don’t know where he goes from here…Who’s going to hire him? At this point, probably nobody.”
