The National Wrestling Alliance returns to pay-per-view on March 21 with Back on the Attack on Fite TV. The NWA has been on hiatus for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and thus far, no matches have been announced.
One name guaranteed to be on the card is NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Aldis gave another name he would like to see in the company with him.
"The one that stands out to me, I've known him since Harley Race's camp, and felt like he was never utilized to even close to his full potential; I'd love to see Joe Hennig [Curtis Axel in WWE] show up in the NWA and see what he can do. From a selfish standpoint, to be able to tell that story of his lineage and legacy, a guy like him could be revitalized by the way we do content. There are a ton of names. A lot of names returning from previous seasons and a lot of new faces. I can't wait to see it," said Aldis.
Hennig, the son of Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, was released by WWE in April 2020 after 13 years with the company. He hasn't wrestled since February 2020.
Elsewhere during the interview, Aldis discussed NWA's deal with Fite TV. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
