– Jim Cornette recently came under criticism as he told a Twitter user to kill themselves and then suggested someone help them do it if necessary. You can see a screen shot of Cornette’s tweets below.

Cornette is currently an announcer on NWA Powerrr, and despite backlash from fans, he will remain in that position. The NWA released the following statement on the matter.


Over the last few days, a situation was brought to our attention in regard to comments made by Jim Cornette that have been taken as making light on the subject of suicide.

We’ve addressed the situation internally with Mr. Cornette and made it clear that any comments in regards to this subject, joking or serious, are not endorsed by Lightning One and the National Wrestling Alliance.

Mr. Cornette understands the seriousness of this situation and with that he will remain the color commentator for NWA Powerrr.

Mental Health and Suicide Prevention are very important to the NWA President Billy Corgan and myself. If you’re ever needing help or need to speak with someone: The National Suicide Prevention Life Line is 1-800-273-8255 or online at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org
