Nick Aldis was invited on the Monday episode of Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM. Aldis, who has been very vocal lately after WWE’s negative comments from Bruce Prichard, spoke about how proud he is of working for the NWA. He also revealed that he makes six figures after refusing to accept a check from Billy Corgan for several months.
Aldis said, “I am very blessed in the NWA. I do six figures.
That is not the case for everyone and I had to win that. The first six months that I worked for this company, I didn’t take a check. I said that I will get everything I get from independent reserves and I will demonstrate my value and earn a lot of money from the independent ones. I defended the title in 7 different countries on 4 different continents. It was good.
I’ve been at this, no pun intended. There were times when Billy said you only let me know when you’re ready to get paid and I said no, we’re fine. After 6 months, I said yes, we have a goal on the horizon and we demonstrated that I can do business and do great business and I said that now you can pay me a salary.
I have been very fortunate to do that. But I think that, and this is a point that I want to make to many of the young fighters. Wrestling companies don’t just start and hand out six-figure contracts to people. That’s not normal. There have been some guys who have had some doubts about it on the NWA in that regard, but ultimately generated that revenue for the company. This company, even at this point, continues to generate more than 5 figures in monthly income.
That is largely due to me. It is not that she pats or pats my back too hard. We have incredible talent and many people have worked very hard to make this what it is. But deep down, if you’re really honest with yourself, is there really anyone else right now for whom if they left this mark, this company would be in serious trouble? You know the answer. Is not.”
Nick Aldis’s statements contradict what Raven said a couple of weeks ago.
Raven said she heard that the NWA was closing, but Billy Corgan later released a statement saying he was not closing it. Based on what was said during the interview on Busted Open Radio, it appears that Aldis believes that the NWA will be operational again at some point.
