I'm kinda shocked that Nick Aldis is only 34 and has been NWA champion for 3 and half years with the exception of 2 months when Cody held the title.
Is he wasted in the NWA ok he mightn't be the face of the company material in the major companies but he is avery decent hand in the ring and has a presence and surely he would be making better money than he is on now. I read his contract at NWA is about $250 a week he is in his prime and I'm sure he could get a better pay day somewhere else.
First of all, I feel like the little guy running around ringing a bell. I see stuff I think maybe not everybody sees. It’s going to be a hot second here, but pretty quickly, all the non-WWE forces out there at play are going to figure out that if they work together, you can topple the giant. You might not topple them to the ground, but you can bring them to a knee. That has not been even remotely a possibility for over 20 years. It’s been 20+ years since the WWE had real competition. Now if you want to say AEW vs WWE, I can respect that, but I think WWE would beg to differ on the bottom line part of it all. But, if you’re talking about a public perception where you let this wrestling revolution of the last five years really kick in, and they let talents like yourself Bully, or a Mark Henry step up into this new vacuum, which Triller is also creating with the Fight Club model, and suddenly you can offer fans matchups that are complete dream matchups, and can rival WrestleMania on any given night, I think it will blow this industry wide apart, in a good way, not in a bad way. I think Tony Khan is very smart. He’ll figure that out pretty soon. I think he’s going to quickly figure out that if he can get everybody under the same tent, and he has a lot of people under the same tent already. I’m working with Tony. Impact is working with Tony. New Japan is working with Tony. I don’t think there’s any hostility there between Tony and Ring of Honor. I mean, if you put all the non-WWE players at the table in one night, I mean, how does the world not stop and watch for that one night? That is a mind-blowing concept that wouldn’t even have been close to possible five years ago. To answer your question, I think the NWA is kind of playing the wave that’s coming. But, as I’ve said to Tony privately, our product is what it is. We’re going straight up the middle. I know there are a lot of wrestling fans who like what’s going on. All power to you. I’m going to ride the fact that the old school is the new school, and when all is said and done, it might be five years, it might be seven years, there’s going to be another major player at the table, and it’s going to be the NWA because a mainstream broadcasting platform is going to look and say, ‘If you can deliver this quality with this level of consistency to this wide of an audience, well here’s a seat at the table’, because I don’t have to sell them anything. You look at the history, look at the brand, and look at what you’re presenting. As long as you can figure it out behind the scenes, we’re good to go.”
Corgan was asked if we will see Nick Aldis vs Kenny Omega in the near future:
“I pitched it to Tony a few times. It’s Tony’s world. I respect him for what he’s building. I’ll say it again. Nick vs Cody Rhodes for a third time, that is an epic, epic, matchup waiting to happen. I saw it happen twice in front of my own eyes. When you combine Cody with the NWA World Heavyweights Championship and that history, I’m sorry. I saw a look on Cody’s face that I’ve only seen when he was fighting for that title. You can’t tell me that history does not mean something to him. His father’s nickname is tattooed across his chest for a reason. When your dad is Dusty Rhodes, I’m sorry. I get goosebumps just talking about the dang thing. I hope we see Cody and Nick down the road at some point, because that to me is just waiting.”
The NWA has a total roster of 9 female wrestlers two of which are AEW wrestlers yet Mickie James just announced they will now have a Women's Tag Tiles.
Well how many women do wwe have on their main event rosters ? Not enough to warrant a tag team titles.
Deonna Purrazzo will appear on the NWA All Womens PPV.
Mickey is doing mini Steph. Will probably end up resulting in a feud between her and Kamille.

EmPowerrr was a really fun PPV a nice mix of nostalgia and wrestling.
Tonight's PPV will have a real job on its hands to be as fun.
Also need more of Gail Kim on my TV.
Well done NWA back to back fun PPV's and a great weekend of wrestling,
Maybe Corgan should've given Flair a couple bullet points like "This is NWA so mention some of the current NWA roster.
A career vs title match was more believable here since Trevor Murdoch retiring wouldn't be too unbelievable.
Just waiting for the Masked Man to be revealed as someone I would never know
The NWA Woman's Tag Champs The Hex will be defending the titles against ROH's The Allure next Wednesday and the match will be on Youtube.
Whose side will Velvet be on?
They've a PPV this weekend as well.
Kylie Rae stepping away from wrestling again.
I think maybe for her best mental health she should step away for good this time.
