Aldis on wrestling for WWE: 'I'll cross that bridge
if I come to it' Aldis isn't closing the door on competing
in a WWE ring - January 2024
he's having a blast in his current role, Nick Aldis
isn't ruling out the possibility of wrestling in WWE.
joined WWE as a producer last summer and has now been
working as an on-screen character for about three
months. He was introduced as the new SmackDown General
Manager on October 13. Fans and the WWE powers that
be have been impressed with Aldis style of managment,
on and off camera.
Aldis has been involved in a power struggle with Roman
Reigns and The Bloodline on WWE television, leading
some fans to speculate that a Reigns vs. Aldis match
could happen one day. Aldis told the Daily Mail that
he's grateful for the fans who want to see him compete
in a WWE ring. Aldis is fully committed to his GM
role right now but believes that anything is possible
Reigns known that Aldis is a former NWA Champion?!
is possible in the WWE. I deeply appreciate all of
the fans who keep me alive in that regard, who want
to see me in the ring with this person or that person.
Since my interaction with Roman, that started a whole
different conversation in that regard."
just grateful that there's an interest in it. At the
same time, I'm fully committed to being the best general
manager of all time, so I'll cross that bridge if
I come to it".
Aldis departed the National Wrestling Alliance he
knew that he wanted to end up with some kind of a
job in WWE. Aldis wanted the chance to contribute
to the big time.
been having a blast. I've come in blessed with the
gift of managed expectations. I had sort of made peace
with the idea that maybe WWE was never going to be
on the cards for me at all. So I certainly have come
in with a level of gratitude that I perhaps wouldn't
have had as a guy in his 20s".
came in on a on a day rate, try out as a producer
behind the scenes, which I, again, had fully made
peace with the idea of if that's going to be my job,
then that's going to be my job, and I'll do that job
to the best of my ability, because I decided that
at this point in my life and my career, I wanted to
contribute to the big leagues."
may be because I put in my 10,000 hours, I felt like
I had done enough and had enough experience, enough
expertise and my own unique sort of philosophy and
my own track record of success in the wrestling business
that I was ready to work at the top level. I felt
one way or another that my skill set as a professional
was best suited to be contributing to the number one
finished up with the NWA. And at that time, I decided
that if there was any kind of opportunity whatsoever
with WWE, that was where I wanted to be. I felt like
I'd done everything I could do at a place with limited
resources and just decided one way or another that
I wanted a chance to contribute there."
was a 2-time Worlds Heavyweight Champion while with
the NWA. He's also a former TNA World Champion. Aldis
was blessed to sit under the learning tree of the
legendary 7 x NWA champion Harley Race, one of the
toughest and greatest wrestlers ever - and many say
toughest men ever! Living legend Hulk Hogan and departed
legend Andre The Giant could speak on that.
SmackDown two weeks ago, Aldis announced that Reigns
will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship
against Randy Orton, LA Knight, and AJ Styles in a
fatal four-way match at the Royal Rumble. Aldis made
the announcement after The Bloodline disrupted an

Nemeth On Why He Chose To Confront Moose at TNA Hard
an interview for TNAs
Instagram (via Fightful), Nic Nemeth explained why
he chose to confront Moose for his TNA debut at this
past Saturdays Hard to Kill PPV. Nemeth will
appear on tonights Impact on AXS TV to explain
said: I wasnt focused on Moose [at TNA
Hard To Kill], and I wasnt even focused on the
championship, which I have thought about non-stop
for a long time. Like I said, I go, where can I pinpoint
the moment where people will make it the most memorable?
I did 20 years in one company. I get one chance to
make a second impression here on the world. That will
be the biggest possible moment and the most talked-about,
I think. I really think that helps myself and the
company. I didnt have a plan. Moose is in my
target, I got him. I was watching that title match
going, whoever wins, Im sliding in there and
going, Here I am, lets go. So I
dont exactly know what my focus is, other than,
I have earned everything that Ive worked for,
to a point where I go, I dont want to stroll
in here and be like, Hey, I showed up through
the crowd so you gotta give me a title shot,
or, Im famous, so I get a
No, I wanted to make my mark there, and now I focus
on, where can I fit in? Where can I start building
blocks to make myself to where Im not presenting
it, but the world goes, this should be the number
one contender, and heres why. Then, when that
happens, Ill know that Ill be able to
sleep at night going, I have proven myself worthy
of a title shot. Okay, now lets focus on the
champion. No, Im not hand-picking anything:
Im here, and I said, I am lucky to be here,
Im happy to be here. If I get some more eyes
on TNA, hell yeah, that rocks. Let me know where I
start, and Im coming in with my lunchbox and
ready to go. Im gonna prove it in the ring every
single night that says, we need to do something else.
We need to get this guy in the title picture, he has
earned it. But I gotta put in the time first and the
effort. Im not all show and all talk. Im
gonna earn it, but I want the TNA locker room and
the audience to be going, this is the guy. He deserves
a shot. Not me walking in and saying, Hey, give
me a shot. Hell no. I would never do it that
way the rest of my life. Theres no way Ill
do it now. I want to make this count. I want it to

though he took me out, which I'm going to get mine
back when the time is right, but let's leave that
alone. Talking about Nic coming into the company,
I think it's huge for TNA.
Obviously, I'm a huge fan of his. He's a superstar.
He's done everything in professional wrestling, he's
been World Champion, he's been a tag team guy, he's
won every single title you can think about. He's been
all over the world. He has a huge buzz going right
now. For him to pick TNA over AEW and New Japan or
any other company, that shows that TNA is a hot spot
right now. I'm happy he's part of the team, I'm happy
I get to do something down the road with him. I'm
happy that TNA is starting to be a spot where people
want to come. Same thing with Ash By Elegance, her
picking us over other companies out there, I'm happy
she is part of the team and I can't wait to see what
the future brings with Nic and Ash.

Wrestler Grayson Wallers defiant response to
Sunrise controversy - January 19th, 2024
Aussie wrestler isnt backing down after he caused
chaos live on Sunrise this week, threatening to punch
a crew member. By Nick Bond
wrestling champ Grayson
Waller has shared a simple public response to
the controversy over his chaotic appearance on Sunrise
earlier this week.
was appearing on Tuesdays episode of Sunrise
alongside US wrestler LA Knight, and lost his temper
when hosts Natalie Barr and Matt Doran attempted to
goad them into showing off some of their moves on
a willing crew member.
dont think you understand if I come over
there right now, were going to have the police
here, cos Im not going to give you some fake
punch. Im going to punch you straight in the
jaw, Waller said, as Doran struggled to contain
him while the crew member quickly scarpered from the
the average viewer, it was a shocking outburst
but as the clip circulated online, wrestling fans
were quick to praise Waller. They insisted his trash-talk
had actually diffused the situation, and was a better
option than what the Sunrise hosts were suggesting
he do: Potentially hurt a member of their staff.
posted a photo to his Twitter account yesterday that
wouldve been cryptic to many, but one that meant
something to wrestling fans:
photo in question is from an infamous 1988 encounter
between wrestler David Schultz and reporter John Stossel,
who was at the time working on an expose
on the world of professional wrestling.
think this is fake, Stossel told the wrestler,
which got an immediate and violent response.
think this is fake? Schultz asked, before smacking
the reporter across the face, leaving him cowering
on the ground.
think thats fake? What the hells wrong
with you? Thats an open-hand slap, huh?
continued, before walloping Stossel again, leaving
him to flee down the corridor.
wrestling faithful knew exactly what Waller was referencing
just from the screenshot of Schultz and applauded
him for standing his ground on Sunrise.
was awesome. Good on you for sticking up for wrestling.
They were totally disrespectful, wrote one follower.
saw you in a different light today, Grayson. Good
on you, said another.
respect for you has risen tenfold, another fan
footage of Wallers outburst went viral on social
media one clip alone has been viewed more than
1.5 million times fans praised him his respect
for kayfabe, a wrestling term used to
describe the convention of presenting staged performances
as genuine or authentic.
was absolutely f**king brilliant from Waller there.
He protected kayfabe, he protected Knight. He was
so sharp and on the ball. I was already a fan of his
but my respect for him just grew a lot from this,
gushed one fan.
face might be familiar to reality TV fans: He was
a controversial contestant on the 2019 season of Australian
Survivor, where he proved divisive among his fellow
contestants and viewers due to his aggressive nature
and former AFL player Abby Holmes dubbed him an actual
idiot, but Farrelly, who is also a high school
teacher when hes not wrestling, soon embraced
the epithet, selling ACTUAL IDIOT T-shirts
at his wrestling matches.
had a feeling that most of my airtime was probably
going to be me yelling and screaming, and Im
OK with that, he told News after his elimination
from the show.
