Trevor Murdoch Has No Plans To Sign With AEW Or WWE, Details 'Fizzled' AEW Talks For A Match

Trevor Murdoch is NWA for life.

Murdoch is the reigning NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion and he has no plans of going to a bigger promotion in his career as he feels he fits perfectly with the National Wrestling Alliance and their throwback aesthetic.

Speaking on the Wrestling Perspective podcast, Murdoch explained why he is sticking with NWA.

"Cinderella has found his shoe. When I was a young guy, I was open to all of that. 'Whoever will pay me the most and push me.' NWA treats me right, when I'm in the ring, I feel like that's where I'm supposed to be. When I watch the program, I feel like that's what I'm supposed to be doing. This is where Trevor Murdoch is supposed to be, right here. At the end of the day, when NWA says, 'Hey Trevor, we're done with you in front of the camera,' that's it. This is where I'm finishing my career, in the NWA. In my personal opinion, I won't be able to top what I've done, just in the short time I've been here. I'm a tried and true NWA guy. I don't want to go to AEW, I don't want to go to WWE. They're great in their own respective, but Trevor Murdoch fits in the NWA and I'm happy here. This is where I'm going to stay," he said.

Following up, it was asked if Murdoch had any plans to walk through the Forbidden Door and defend the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title in a bigger company.

"There was some discussions with AEW, but I think they kind of fizzled out pretty quick because they were talking about the forbidden door and guys getting injured, but I don't think it lasted very long. I'm really not inquiring. I'm focused on the NWA and being a representative for the NWA," he said.

Murdoch won the vacant NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title at NWA Alwayz Ready in a four-way match against Nick Aldis, Thom Latimer, and Sam Shaw. The title was vacated earlier in the night by Matt Cardona, who is sidelined with an injury.

Murdoch had defeated Aron Stevens in singles competition earlier in the night.
