Will Nick Aldis Be At All Out?
Right now, Nick Aldis is still the NWA Heavyweight Champion, in his eyes, the real world’s champion. He carried this mantle well, and his defenses have been great. Sadly, just before a huge match with Marty Scurll, NWA would all but shut down in the face of COVID-19. Most of their roster has been released, except for key players like Aldis.
It doesn’t make much sense for a man who holds one of the most prestigious championships in professional wrestling to sit on the sidelines, waiting for his company to get back to work. Especially not when an old rival is parading around with a title of his own, and holding an open challenge for it.
Nick Aldis Is A Historically Great Opponent For Cody Rhodes
The record between Nick Aldis and Cody Rhodes is a perfect 1-1 right now. Cody beat Aldis for the NWA Championship at All In, the proto-AEW event that started it all. Aldis reclaimed the title at NWA’s 45th Anniversary show in a 2 out of 3 falls match.
They show better chemistry together than most tag teams, as both work a similar style and make every match they wrestle feel like an epic. However, what’s the fun in leaving a rivalry like this in a draw?
Right now, Cody has never been better. His defenses of the TNT Championship are consistently bringing out the best in him, with his recent match against Eddie Kingston being one of the best TV matches of the year. Considering how good past matches with Aldis were, what could they do now?
All Out Deserves A Huge TNT Championship Match
Possibly the biggest show in the AEW catalog, All Out is going to be a huge show once again. Last year, we saw the first AEW Champion crowned, Lucha Bros & The Young Bucks tore it up in a ladder match, PAC defeated Kenny Omega in a classic, and Cody faced Shawn Spears ending a bitter feud. This year is going to be even bigger. Now all the championships are on the table, with huge defenses of the AEW Heavyweight, Tag Team, and Women’s Championships in the works.
However, the TNT Championship is a bit of an outlier in this situation. It’s defended on an open challenge basis, with contenders stepping up sometimes the day of a show, just before ring time. This can add a level of intrigue and mystery which fans love. Having someone like Nick Aldis make his AEW debut to face Cody one more time? That would be a moment fitting of All Out.
