During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Nick Aldis discussed wanting to see the NWA & AEW collaborate. Here are the highlights:
On The NWA:
The NWA has proven that people wanted to take this world championship seriously again. The credibility was given to me by all the men who held the title before I did, and I represent the qualities and attributes that people identify with as world champion.
On The NWA & AEW Working Together:
Working with AEW is brought up to me almost daily. The NWA is open to working with anyone. There are a number of wrestlers outside the WWE that are viewed as elite-level guys, so it’s only a matter of time before the audience starts demanding the main-event matches they want to see. We want to give the fans the matches they want to see, these super fights. If AEW wants to be involved in big, marquee matches, then they have two choices: go out and write some more big checks to some more guys, or they’re going to have to come to the table and work out some super fights with the NWA.
On What’s Important To Him:
I want to keep having really meaningful moments, like All In with Cody and me, as well as some of our other milestone matches. I’ve been able to make my matches feel like the most important thing that day. We’re building anticipation to a big showdown against Flip, which has been lost in our business. Everything I do speaks to that philosophy.
