NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis recently spoke with Cultaholic’s YouTube channel where he discussed why he’s not signed with AEW.
Aldis admitted that right now AEW already has a bunch of top established talent, and therefore he made the decision to be in that spot for a different company.
Aldis said: “There’s only so many top spots available in any promotion, any company. Like my whole career, people have been like ‘why don’t you go to WWE’ or since AEW, ‘why don’t you go to AEW.’ Well, because there’s already a bunch of top guys, and so it’s a business decision because you can be a top guy in a different promotion and essentially you become kind of vital to the trickle-down economics of the whole place…The same thing can be argued about me and the NWA and really when you’re looking at it, all you’re really thinking of is what is the benefit? If it’s not money then it’s probably opponents and matches.”
“I think that people got off on the wrong exit when I was talking about not going there (AEW). Like in the sense that they thought that I was trying to sort of throw shade or something. That’s not the case at all; I just looked at the landscape at the time and just thought I’ve sort of started something here with the NWA.

“Cornette said once on one of the shows when he was commentating, the NWA made Nick and Nick made the NWA. There’s a real sort of coexistence there and I felt like there was a lot more to achieve still in my current spot. If that changes, then I hope those options are still available, but as of now, I’m really happy doing what I’m doing but I’m also very driven to take the NWA and my position in the NWA to the highest heights I feel like I can take it.”
