NWA aired their first episode of Powerrr, the weekly studio wrestling show, tonight on YouTube.
It's old school, in the best way.
I love this stuff man.
-The Dawsons versus Billy Buck/Sal Rinauro -Eli Drake versus Caleb Konley -The Wildcards versus Mims/Danny White -James Storm versus Jocephus -Nick Aldis versus Tim Storm for the NWA World Championship
Trevor Murdoch could be the Dusty Rhodes of this universe.
I hope they give him an Austin level push. Not saying he'll be anywhere as big a star as those guys, but with his look and ability, he could absolutely be that guy for this audience, and the contrast of him and Aldis is classic Dusty/Flair.
Jim Cornette has resigned from NWA, The latest episode of Powerrr was pulled last night while a joke Cornette made on commentary was edited out after the PC police and outrage culture pitched a fit on Twitter calling Jim a racist for a poor joke he's been making since the 80s.
Yeah, the joke was outdated but flew by me when I first heard it.
Cancel culture and woke warriors out for their pound of flesh, and Cornette is under a giant microscope because he has made it a personal vendetta against AEW and his feud with the Bucks and Omega so anytime there's a chance to yell LOOK AT THE BAD MAN DOING/SAYING BAD THINGS, they will be all over it.
For the record, I disagree with the extent to which he dislikes the Elite guys as I've been a huge Bucks fan since their early ROH days and I know he hates Omega because of the blowup doll match, but to me, that's like saying an actor who has starred in a comedy cannot then go and star in a serious action movie. That said, it's his right to dislike them and you will never convince me that the people up in arms aren't actually 100% more offended at what Cornette has said about their favorite wrestlers than a lame dig at starving ethopians.
