NWA Powerrr Results; Outrage at Jim Cornette’s Racist Comment
Another episode of NWA Powerrr is in the books. This one was unfortunately more memorable for a racist comment from Jim Cornette. First, the results:
- Nick Aldis def. Trevor Murdoch
- The Question Mark? versus Ricky Starks ended in a no contest due to Aron Stevens interference
- Marti Belle & Thunder Rosa def. Ashley Vox & Allisyn Kay
- Aron Stevens & The Question Mark? def. Ricky Starks & Colt Cabana
The show featured solid in-ring product as usual. It also featured an explicitly racist comment from color commentator Jim Cornette while calling the Nick Aldis-Trevor Murdoch match.

NWA has taken down the airing of Powerrr to correct it, according to NWA Vice-President Dave Lagana. The show airs pre-taped, so it is still inexcusable that a comment like this could make it to air.
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.

Nikki Cross Re-Signs With WWE
Another WWE Superstar has apparently re-upped with the company. According to SquaredCircleSirens (h/t WrestlingInc), Nikki Cross has re-signed for multiple years with WWE. Cross’ three year contract was set to expire in the coming months, so her re-signing takes a potential lucrative female talent off the market.
NXT & AEW Previews
Wednesday night will continue to be the biggest battleground in the wrestling world. Deciding which show to watch between NXT & AEW Dynamite can be tricky. Here’s what each show has lined up to entice you on Wednesday:
- The Revival versus Undisputed Era
- Adam Cole versus Dominik Dijakovic in a ladder match to determine WarGames advantage
- Likely more interference from Raw and SmackDown as WWE heads into Survivor Series
- Private Party versus Santana & Ortiz in a “Battle of the Boroughs”
- Jon Moxley versus Darby Allin
- 12-Man Diamond Dozen Battle Royal – the match ends when there are two men remaining, and those two will battle next week to be awarded a special AEW diamond ring
- A message from “Le Champion” Chris Jericho
Lots of interesting things promised from both brands. Two screens might come in handy.
One for the Road
Remember the 24/7 Championship? This WWE employee became champ yesterday. He lost it back, so does it really matter?
