Nick Aldis is no longer a part of the NWA while questioning the lack of experience of his former boss, Billy Corgan.
For the past five years, Nick Aldis was the proverbial face of the NWA promotion that Billy Corgan purchased in 2017. Aldis is a former two-time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, who earlier this gave his notice and made it public that he will be a free agent on January 1, 2023.
It should be noted that Aldis has made it clear that he didn’t intentionally try to reveal his contract status. It was an accident because he only meant to share the news with people that subscribe to his updates on Instagram. Aldis made it known that he was leaving the NWA due to creative differences among other things.
After the news came out that Aldis chose to opt out of his contract, as he was legally able to do, the NWA chose to suspend him. Aldis was going to be on the NWA Hard Times 3 card in New Orleans today (November 12th), but he was removed from the card after he was suspended.
During a lengthy interview on the Notsam Wrestling Podcast with Sam Roberts, Aldis talked about how the well-known musician Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins has a lack of experience in the pro wrestling business based on how he dealt with Aldis.
“Let’s call a spade a spade; he worked himself into a shoot. I’m trying to be nice here and not say what’s very obvious and for anyone who’s paying attention. But, his lack of experience and nativity. I’ve been in this business since I was 17 years old. I’ve got pretty thick skin at this point. I hate the fact that it paints me in this light of like, complaining or having problems backstage, because anyone who has been involved in the NWA, anyone knows that no one put more sweat equity into that brand than me.”
Elsewhere in his interview with Roberts, Aldis talked about how some recent comments by Triple H about past changes in NXT led to Aldis thinking about changing direction in his career.
