The final episode of NWA Powerrr’s first season will air tonight, and it’s also the last episode to feature commentary by Jim Cornette.

Ahead of tonight’s episode, the promotion released the following statement “Lastly, it’s the final episode of the NWA Powerrr called by analyst and pro wrestling legend Jim Cornette,” wrote the promotion. “We thank Jim for his support of the National Wrestling Alliance in Season 1, and his over thirty plus years with the organization. His call of the Rock N Roll Express match is an exemplary display of his many talents, and we wish Jim nothing but the best moving forward.”

Cornette and the promotion severed ties after Cornette made a controversial joke about Ethiopia and fried chicken.
