NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis, has spoken on the state of his contract status with the National Wrestling Alliance.
Ever since the Brit captured his first piece of heavyweight gold with the company, defeating Tim Storm at CZW: Cage of Death 19 on December 9, 2017, he has become the face of the promotion and the name most associate with the rebirth of the legendary company.
Now, the man who is sitting at 800 days as NWA World Heavyweight Champion at time of writing has joined Konnan’s Keepin’ It 100 Podcast to discuss his tenure with the promotion and if he’ll be making a departure in the near future:
“Billy [Corgan] picked up my option with the NWA so… Like I said, I had an option on my contract and Billy picked it up and like I said, I would not have opened up any discussions with anyone without talking to — This is ‘Keepin it 100,’ I just care about that paper. That’s it and Billy’s been very loyal to me and I to him and I truly believe in what we’re doing with the product and I wouldn’t walk away from it because we haven’t even scratched the surface of what we could accomplish.”
With the talent now tethered to the promotion which made him a household and worldwide name for at least another year, the question of how long his reign as NWA World Heavyweight Champion will last comes into effect.
Since regaining the strap from Cody Rhodes on October 21, 2018, Aldis has been indomitable at the summit of the NWA mountain. Tim Storm, Mike Bennett, Marty Scurll, James Storm and even the legendary Ricky Morton have all fell by the wayside on Aldis’ journey to immortality leaving many to ponder if there is anyone good enough to dethrone the king of professional wrestling.
