The NWA is still making as much noise as they can, and they have a roster of exceptional, yet sometimes overlooked talent. Trevor Murdoch may be the current holder of the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship but the modern-day version of the title will forever be synonymous with Nick Aldis.

Aldis held the title for 1,043 days. He also brought much-needed relevancy to the prestigious title that had been on the backburner since the promotion’s split from WCW in January 1991.

The former NWA Worlds Champion announced his decision to resign with the promotion that has been his home since 2017. Aldis joined the company under the watchful eye of Billy Corgan.

“I can confirm that I have extended my agreement with the NWA. I have re-signed. It’s a good day in terms of looking ahead to a great new year for the NWA and for me,” he said during an appearance on Busted Open Radio.

“There is a lot going on in the business and it’s nice to be in a good position, but ultimately, respect goes a long way and from the first conversation that Billy and I ever had regarding the NWA and my career and our working relationship together, I’ve had nothing but absolute respect from him, more so than any person I’ve worked with in my career. I can’t wait to see what else we come up with.”

NWA also announced they have made several changes to their broadcasting model. A new programming called “NWA All Access” will soon be available on FITE TV. In addition to the show, NWA will air “NWA USA” on YouTube this Saturday (Jan. 8).
