NWA’s Nick Aldis, the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, recently spoke with WrestleZone Managing Editor Bill Pritchard about the state of the National Wrestling Alliance and his continued reign as champion, which currently sits at 948 days. He explained that he hears some of the criticism of his reign, but noted that the past year’s events are out of his control and he still takes pride in knowing that he’s still considered as the best representative of the NWA today.
“It’s just an unusual situation in the modern era for someone to hold a championship for this long. So, I’m just kind of like… sorry if you’re upset about the lack of wrestling matches that happen during a global pandemic, but aside from that, it’s a cool feeling to know that historically you’ll be up there with some all-time greats. That’s more of a novelty thing for me, but on a professional side,” Aldis said, “it’s more rewarding to know that I’m still considered to be the best guy for the job at this point in time after two years.”
