National Wrestling Alliance Owner Billy Corgan revealed during a recent chat on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast that he is open to booking Cody Rhodes vs. Nick Aldis III.
After being asked if he was open to working more with AEW, Corgan said: "I'm open to all that stuff. It's like, where do you want it to go? Right now, the NWA is in a position where we're just building back up. I totally appreciate those opportunities, but we're not really geared in that way. If you saw some of the comments that Chris Jericho had about AEW working with IMPACT, who I'm publicly no fan of because of my dealings with them, including them stealing a former talent from us, not to mention what went on with Dixie Carter, Jericho completely buried the situation with IMPACT because he basically was talking about the disparity in power and star attraction.
"Now, there's plenty of talented people at IMPACT, not to denigrate them and I've worked with some of them, especially people in Decay, Rosemary and Crazzy Steve. So no mark on the talent, but look, you're not an equal in the situation. So you're put in a situation where you're trying to convince another fan base to believe in some form of equity. It's always a bit long key," Corgan continued.
"I think under the right circumstances, like the Serena dynamic being the holder of the title, Thunder Rosa is an NWA talent working for AEW with great regularity, that's a nice balance. It's balanced out by a couple of forces. If Tony calls and wants to do Cody-Nick Aldis III, yeah, I'm all over it. Some of the traditional ways that people work together, invasion angles and stuff like that, I don't think that's a good fit for either one of us. Tony has more talent than he knows what to do with. He doesn't need our talent too."
Cody Rhodes and Nick Aldis famously went one on one for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at All In back in 2018. Cody emerged victorious on that occasion, but he dropped the title back to Aldis at the NWA 70th Anniversary Show one month later.
