• Mark Henry 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 interview with TMZ Sports, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry was asked to comment on this situation and below is what “The World’s Strongest Man” said:

“It just hurts, man. As much as I can say, I’m disappointed and I hope that he can try to fix this. But, some people just don’t like people of color.

I would say, ‘Jim … please apologize, and mean it. And if you don’t mean it, then go all the way Darth Vader and tell us you just don’t like black people.’ At least I know who you are. And, then I can get rid of this feeling that I have in my heart. It’s like having your mother or father disown you. I feel like a sense of mourning.

Prior to all of this, the relationship that I had with Jim Cornette has been really, really good. He taught me a lot about pro wrestling. He allowed me into his home to look at his archive. He helped me to be the wrestler that I became. And, I probably wouldn’t have been the guy without him.

But, it is very, very hurtful. And, I don’t get emotional about much, but I feel a sense of loss.”
