Nick Aldis: I'm Waiting For The Right Option, Not Necessarily The First One

Nick Aldis discusses his free agency.

Aldis departed the National Wrestling Alliance at the end of 2022 after being the face of the promotion since 2017. Aldis cited many reasons for his departure, chief among them being creative differences with Billy Corgan.

Aldis is currently a free agent and enjoying his freedom to do different things.

"I just wanted to be free and clear of any commitments for a minute and then see what happens. I've had a couple of different phone calls with a couple of different people and places. 'What if we did this?' Maybe that?' For now, that's what I want it to be," he said about being a free agent in an AdFreeShows exclusive.

Aldis said he has upcoming bookings in Calgary, Australia, and the UK.

"I'm happy to keep doing that," he said. "I have a couple of irons in the fire and, for me, that's what I'm happy doing. I like approaching the business like the guys used to. Matt Cardona is doing that. He's working a program in this territory and works a thing over here. That's intriguing to me. Ultimately, I'm very confident that I can deliver. It's waiting for the right option, not necessarily the first one. Wrestling, at this point, is not my only occupation. I'm also a small business owner. Any small business owner will tell you that that's full-time. It's not like I'm putting wrestling on the back burner. I'm trying to build and scale a business. That takes and uses a lot of mental resources."

Aldis has wrestled for House of Glory, Glory Pro, and DREAMWAVE in recent months.

He's set to be part of a joint event with Oceania Pro Wrestling and Starrcast in late 2023. Fans can learn more details about the event by clicking here.
