Nick Aldis Believes He Could “Make Magic” With Former WWE Star Curtis Axel

NWA world’s champion Nick Aldis recently appeared on the This Is Wrestling podcast to to discuss the promotion’s state during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. During the interview Aldis would be asked about future potential opponents to challenge him for the title and names former WWE star Joe Hennig (Curis Axel) as someone he believes he can “make magic with.”

The one that may surprise people but I really have faith and could really make magic with is Joe Hennig. Curtis Axel in WWE… I’m getting excited just talking about it but Joe and I attended Harley Race’s camp together in 2007 I think it was… We were all like that’s Curt Hennig’s kid. Wow. He’s just started wrestling and he was such a natural. I couldn’t believe it. I was just so envious. This perfect footwork and takes these perfect crisp flatback bumps. Perfect dropkick. I was like ‘I’ve been doing this for like 4 years and I can’t do it like that!’

“You know for me I just don’t understand why and how that was never taken advantage of but in our world, you can bet your ass that that’s how we do it. We would take you on that ride and tell you every part of that story and get you emotionally invested. Not to say that we would exploit any of those things but if anyone saw the build towards me and Cody and the emotion attached to that because of Dusty and because of what it meant to Cody. It’s genuine. It’s real. What it genuinely meant to Cody to get a shot at the title and what it meant to his family. I think that a lot of the same elements exist with Joe Hennig except with Joe Hennig it’s a real point to prove with him. I think two guys around the same age with very different paths but sort of converging at the same point in time with this ultimate prize on the line but both with real significant points to prove. I think it’s pretty hard to go wrong with that.
