Jim Cornette's comment that offended fans was, "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!"
NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis gave a statement tonight about the situation on Twitter.
In his statement, he wrote, "This is no way speaking on behalf of the NWA, I am absolutely speaking for myself: I thought the comment was in poor taste and unnecessary. I totally understand why it caused many to be upset. It was a lack of judgment or sensitivity. I have worked really hard along with many others on this team to make this brand mean something again and this is not how I want NWA to be trending."
Aldis also tweeted, "I'm sorry for the inappropriate remarks and am glad to see they have been promptly edited out. I hope this is the first and last time an episode of #NWAPowerrr is overshadowed by something like this."
The episode has since been edited and uploaded back on NWA's YouTube channel.
