Being a sports announcer comes with great responsibility.
You would think National Wrestling Alliance commentator Jim Cornette knew better, but he learned the hard way.
During a recent broadcast, Cornette said something he should regret. When describing a wrestler’s toughness, he said the following:
“He’s the only man I’ve ever known that can strap a bucket of fried chicken on his back and ride a motor scooter across Ethiopia.”
Following all the backlash, Cornette resigned from his position.
