Nick Aldis Says Billy Corgan Picked Up NWA Contract Option, States NWA Powerrr Will Return In 2021

In not so surprising news, Nick Aldis will remain with the National Wrestling Alliance.

Aldis has been with the new NWA since Billy Corgan purchased the company in 2017 and is the reigning NWA World Heavyweight Champion along with occupying an executive role in the company.

Appearing on Keepin It 100', Aldis confirmed that he will be remaining with NWA after Billy Corgan picked up his contract option.

"Billy picked up my option with the NWA. I had an option on my contract and Billy picked it up. I would not have opened up discussions with anyone....Since this is Keepin It 100, I just care about that paper. Billy has been very loyal to me and I to him. I truly believe in what we're doing and I wouldn't have walked away from it at this point because we haven't even scratched the surface of what we can accomplish," said Aldis.

NWA has been on a live event hiatus during the pandemic, though they partnered with United Wrestling Network to produce matches for UWN Primetime Live in September.

Aldis said about the partnership and the future of NWA, "UWN Primetime Live is not an NWA product. NWA Power is our flagship. That's coming back in 2021, 100%. We've got some really good news on the NWA front and I'm hoping within the next few weeks we'll be able to share with everyone. Everyone who has been asking over and over 'what's been going on with the NWA? When are you guys coming back and making new content?' Stay with us because we've got something really cool coming up on the horizon that will satisfy everyone on that front."

NWA is currently airing Shockwave each week, which are previously recorded matches from NWA events and UWN Primetime Live.

It is unknown when NWA Powerrr will return. NWA Women's Champion Serena Deeb recently said NWA will probably start taping again in early 2021, though nothing has been confirmed.
