Earlier this week Jim Cornette resigned from NWA following controversial comments he said during the latest episode of NWA Powerrr while Trevor Murdoch was in the ring.
The episode was taken down and then reuploaded to YouTube as they edited out the comments said by Cornette. It didn't take long for people to call him a racist for what he had stated by many people online.
"It just hurts, man. As much as I can say, I'm disappointed and I hope that he can try to fix this. But, some people just don't like people of color.
I would say, 'Jim ... please apologize, and mean it. And if you don't mean it, then go all the way Darth Vader and tell us you just don't like black people.' At least I know who you are. And, then I can get rid of this feeling that I have in my heart. It's like having your mother or father disown you. I feel like a sense of mourning."
Henry recalled his relationship with Jim Cornette being a good one prior to the comments said this week.
"Prior to all of this, the relationship that I had with Jim Cornette has been really, really good," Henry stated. "He taught me a lot about pro wrestling. He allowed me into his home to look at his archive. He helped me to be the wrestler that I became. And, I probably wouldn't have been the guy without him. But, it is very, very hurtful. And, I don't get emotional about much, but I feel a sense of loss."
