For the past 958 days, Nick Aldis has held the legendary Ten Pounds Of Gold. He’s been defending the NWA World Heavyweight Champion against all comers, but the reign started with perhaps the most notable match of his reign. Aldis started this reign by regaining the championship from Cody Rhodes, in their second match together. The rivalry sits at one win a piece, and fans are wondering if we will ever see a third match. NWA owner Billy Corgan is ready to go on it, and is just waiting for the call from Tony Khan.
Billy Corgan Has Been Working With AEW For A Long Time Now
Something that will come as no shock is a willingness to work together between the NWA & AEW. The NWA World Women’s Championship has been frequently defended by Serena Deeb, and before that by Thunder Rosa. On both PPV events and AEW Dynamite, the belt has been defended quite frequently. Thunder Rosa is currently contracted to NWA, yet remains one of the top women in AEW, showing the strength of their working relationship.
However, Corgan is ready to work beyond that and get their top title into the mix, but doesn’t want to do an invasion angle with the NWA. “If Tony calls and wants to do Cody-Nick Aldis III, yeah, I’m all over it. Some of the traditional ways that people work together, invasion angles and stuff like that, I don’t think that’s a good fit for either one of us. Tony has more talent than he knows what to do with. He doesn’t need our talent too.”
Nick Aldis Will Defend The NWA Championship Against Trevor Murdoch This Weekend
Any potential matches between Cody Rhodes & Nick Aldis involving the NWA Championship will have to wait until after NWA When Our Shadows Fall, an event which airs tomorrow. The main event is set to see Aldis defend the belt against former NWA National Champion, Trevor Murdoch.
Fans are getting behind Murdoch going into this one, and anyone who beats Aldis now would be a shock after such a long reign. Murdoch is a tough as nails brawler, and has as good a chance as any to pull this off.
Do you think we’ll ever get to see Rhodes vs. Aldis III? Will Murdoch beat Aldis? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
