NWA Suspends Nick Aldis Leading To Reply From Aldis
The NWA has announced that their former World Champion Nick Aldis has been suspended after he publicly announced that he was leaving the promotion.
Over the weekend, Nick Aldis made it public knowledge that he gave his notice to the National Wrestling Alliance and he was going to be a free agent in pro wrestling as of January 1, 2023. Aldis intended to share that message with his Instagram subscribers only, but it accidentally went out to the masses. He wrote.
“I released that video earlier but it was supposed to be for subscribers only. Wtf… anyway as you may have seen I gave my notice to the NWA. I’ll be a free agent on January 1st. Once I figure out how to do videos for subscribers only I’ll be back with more insight on the decision, conversations with Mickie and my agent and more…
Love you all.”
In response to that, the NWA has released a statement that they shared with PWInsider noting that Aldis has been suspended by the company owned by Billy Corgan.

If some of you are wondering whether stuff like this factored into my decision to give my notice you'd be correct. https://t.co/WY6kQGIU2B

Aldis went on to tweet a message to the fans in New Orleans that won’t be seeing him at the NWA shows because he is now suspended by the company.
“Also, fans in NOLA: Sorry to disappoint but I was removed from the shows this weekend after giving my notice. I fully intended to fulfill my obligations to the audience but unfortunately the company doesn’t seem to share the same values.”
