Nick Aldis: If Getting In The Ring Is The Best Way For Me To Contribute At Some Point, Then Great

Nick Aldis wants to contribute in whatever way is best.

Former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis last wrestled in October 2023. He made his on-screen debut as the new General Manager of WWE SmaxkDown on the October 13 episode, and he has been featured in this role ever since.

Speaking with Gorilla Position, Nick Aldis was asked whether he still has the desire to wrestle.

"Sure. It’s tough to answer this simply because I don’t want to ever give the impression that I’m trying to angle for something or go into something for myself. It’s unavoidable. I’ve seen a ton of sentiment from fans ‘we want to see you wrestle this guy.’ I appreciate all that. It’s not something I have any control or influence over. it’s very much a case of, when Paul [Triple H] and I first started speaking, I made it very clear that ‘I want to be part of the team and contribute in whatever way you think is best.’ If, at some point, [getting in the ring] is best then great. The GM conversation was the shortest conversation of my career. Bruce (Prichard) called me, ‘General Manager of SmackDown.’ ‘Great, when do I start?’ They laid out the terms and money, ‘All sounds great, let’s do it.’ Immediately, I said to my wife [Mickie James], ‘I’m going to try and be the best GM of all time.’ That’s all you can do," Nick Aldis said.

As of this writing, there is no word on when Nick Aldis will return to the ring. Fightful will provide more information as it becomes available.

Aldis previously vowed to be the best General Manager in WWE history. Check out his comments here.
