Nick Aldis Explains Why He Is Still A Free Agent Following NWA Exit

What has Nick Aldis been up to?

Since his departure from the National Wrestling Alliance when his contract expired on January 2, Nick Aldis has remained a free agent and has only performed on one independent wrestling show in DREAMWAVE. 

Aldis addressed his free agency in an AdFreeShows exclusive, revealing that he is simply waiting for the right opportunity. 

"I just wanted to be free and clear of any commitments for a minute and then see what happens. I've had a couple of different phone calls with a couple of different people and places. 'What if we did this?' 'Maybe that?' For now, that's what I want it to be. I'm happy to keep doing that. I have a couple of irons in the fire and, for me, that's what I'm happy doing. I like approaching the business like the guys used to," Aldis said.

"Matt Cardona is doing that. He's working a program in this territory and works a thing over here. That's intriguing to me. Ultimately, I'm very confident that I can deliver. It's waiting for the right option, not necessarily the first one. Wrestling, at this point, is not my only occupation. I'm also a small business owner. Any small business owner will tell you that that's full-time. It's not like I'm putting wrestling on the back burner. I'm trying to build and scale a business. That takes and uses a lot of mental resources."

Aldis had been the NWA's top star for the past five years prior to his exit, holding the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship for 1309 days over two reigns. Aldis left the NWA after a bitter fallout and he was suspended during his final months with the promotion.
