Mark Henry is telling Jim Cornette to apologize for comments made on a recent episode of NWA Powerrr. Henry recently spoke to TMZ.

Henry then said Cornette needs to apologize.

“I would say, ‘Jim … please apologize, and mean it. And if you don’t mean it, then go all the way Darth Vader and [say] I just don’t like black people,'” Henry continued.

“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.”

Cornette made the comment “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,” during a recent broadcast of NWA’s weekly YouTube show. The episode was briefly taken offline, edited, and re-posted.

Henry’s conversation with TMZ can be viewed in the player below:

“Prior to all of this, the relationship that I had with Jim Cornette has been really, really good. 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.”
