David Marquez: Anything I want. Well the obvious question is …
Nick Aldis: Oh! Who had one minute before he asked about Kamille? Get your mind out of the gutter, Marquez. Here’s all you need to know about Kamille. Everything you’ve seen over the last few weeks, all the questions, all the mystery, it was all part of the plan. We got every single one of you. We worked you. We worked them. We worked every single one of you watching at home. We worked James Storm. We worked Tim Storm. You all fell for it and this is the final result.
David Marquez: Should we continue? Alright. Ricky Morton, now you’ve had time, your thoughts?
Nick Aldis: It’s like I talked about before. I spent two years breaking my back to build this place. Hey everyone of you can have anything you want to say, but the fact of the matter is you know the only reason any single of you are out here right now in this ring, in this building, watching all this, you’re looking at it. Cameraman, zoom in here one time. I did first, it’s my gimmick. The NWA sits on my heart because I built this place and then anytime you’re wondering, all you got to do is ask this question.
What’s causing all of this? You’re looking at it. Now, you want to talk about Ricky Morton. Before we address that, i’d like to ask Mr. Morton and Mr. Gibson to come on out. I had a chance to watch the tape back from what you had to say. You know Ricky, I think i’d like to give you this one opportunity and i’d like to just advise you to just take a look around. I’d like to ask you just one time, please clarify your comments from previously.
Ricky Morton: So what you’re asking me is to clarify what I said earlier, huh? Okay. I was asked my opinion and I gave my opinion. You represent the greatest wrestling lives ever. You are the World’s Heavyweight Champion. To answer your question, you even trained under Harley Race and you said earlier that you spent two years building this business, but Harley Race, Ric Flair, us, we spent our whole life building this business. If I said anything to you, anything that upsets you, it’s Christmas Eve, dude you don’t got be Scrooge tonight, okay bud? If I said anything, I apologize to you. Shake my hand.
Nick Aldis: Just one more thing. You saw what happened to James Storm. You saw what happened to Tim Storm. I’d think very carefully before you open your mouth again.

NEXT WEEK… A shocking Qualifying match for #NWATVTitle tournament
— NWA (@nwa) December 23, 2019
Tim Storm Promo
You know guys, you don’t mind if I get personal for just a second, right? Mama Storm turned 95 this week and that’s a shoot. I got to spend time with my mom over the holidays and I asked her mom didn’t retire until she was 78 years old. She got up to a little over eight dollars an hour. She’s retired and she says every time i’m there, how much longer are you going to do this wrestling thing? I told her for the first time ever, I’m actually wondering how long i’m gonna do this.
I told her I said, mom, I got my work ethic from you. You’re the reason why I work the way I work. No she reminded me. I said mom at 78 you had to have been tired and she said absolutely. She reminded me that when my dad left took every penny with him and she said there were days that I didn’t want to go to work and there were days that I was sick and I had to go anyway. She said I didn’t go for the money, I went because I have something left to prove.
She would love right now if I said I was done wrestling, but she reached over and put her hand on mine and she said you still have something left to prove. I’m gonna quote one of my influences. One incredibly great NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion and i’m gonna paraphrase a little bit. He said “my belly may be big, my heinie may be a little bit big.” Well here’s the deal, I may be a little bit old and my body may be a little bit broke down, but I am bad and they know I’m bad I will be mama’s storm baby boy to the day I die, but we have something left to prove and it starts with Nick Aldis.
