Tim Storm Respects Billy Corgan's Passion And Vision, Showers Nick Aldis With Praise

Tim Storm shared his thoughts on Nick Aldis and Billy Corgan.

Speaking with Wrestling Headlines, the former-NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion talked about main eventing the debut episode of Powerrr, and how Nick Aldis deserves credit for tailoring the match to Storm's abilities.

Three More Matches Announced For NJPW Battle In The Valley

"Setting the tone is always important. Main event of a TV show is always important. I think we walked into that with at least a comfort with each other having had two-to-four matches. The unknown was gone. We know what to expect. Let me be honest…I wanna put Nick over on this…Nick should get credit for that because as I continue to get older…I have more and more limitations. At that point, Nick knew what I could do and what I couldn’t do. There wasn’t a spot in there like there was in our first match where it was like, “okay I’m not quite sure if I’m good with this but I’m going to try it because it’s a big match.”

Did I know the importance of that first match in kicking off this? I don’t know that I grasped it. I did feel the pressure of, “We need to deliver in this situation.” And we did. Nick gets a lot of credit for that because he knows what I can and cannot do.”

Storm would then compliment Billy Corgan, saying he has lots of respect for the NWA President's love for old-school wrestling and the vision he has brought to the promotion. 

“Billy is very VERY hands on. He knows the wrestling business. Here is what I respect most. He is passionate about the business. He had that history with IMPACT. A lot of people…if they weren’t passionate about the business…that would have been it. They would have broken it off. “I had a bad experience so I’m not going to do that again.” Just the fact that not only did he continue with that and he went out…and I tell people this…he could have started Billy Corgan Wrestling promotion and called it that. He went after a brand that he knew and he respected because he loves that old-school wrestling. This was his vision. When he said we were going to bring studio wrestling back…There were a lot of people out there that thought, “This is never going to work.” The fact that Billy had the vision, that he had the passion, and the ingenuity to move forward with that, and he made this presentation to some pretty big companies who couldn’t see that vision. For him to do that…step out, and not only do it but make it work.”

NWA Powerrr hasn't taped new episodes since the pandemic began and there were even rumors that Billy Corgan was looking to sell the company. Corgan shot down those rumors, with NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis even stating the company would be returning at some point. No timeline is currently available.
