Nick Aldis is the current NWA World Heavyweight Champion and has been the champion for almost two-and-a-half years. He had previous stints in Impact Wrestling from 2008 to 2015, where he was known as Brutus Magnus.
While being interviewed on The Angle Podcast, Aldis talked about one of the main issues that plague the major pro wrestling companies such as AEW and WWE, among others.
Aldis said that it is not feasible to have a company full of top stars as this would result in some of them have having to work in the mid-card scene. When a roster is full of main event stars, some are certain to be unhappy and due to that, fans will be unhappy and then rumors start spreading.
Aldis then gave an example of WWE, stating that they have enough money to sign any talent they want to.
You can’t have a company full of top guys because ultimately what happens is that some of them have to work in the middle of the card and some have to open. When you have a roster full of main eventers someone’s going to be unhappy then fans are going to be unhappy and then rumors start flowing and then they get accused of burying so and so.
“I don’t envy WWE for this position because they are the market leader with an incredible amount of money with revenue so they can go out and get Bobby Roode, Cesaro and those guys can work on top with the right booking, but you got Roman. So, people claim they’re wasting Cesaro – he’s so underutilized and underrated, but look he’s getting paid man and there’s only one spot available at the top.
It is unlikely both WWE and AEW will be changing up their methods of acquiring main event level talent anytime soon.
