Nick Aldis On How His NWA Role Has Changed & Telling Detailed Stories With NWA

Nick Aldis recently spoke with WrestlingInc.com ahead of his NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship match against Mike Bennett.

The two men will go one on one tonight for the 10 Pounds of Gold, and Nick spoke about how personal stories such as Bennett’s work brilliantly for NWA, as the company previously has done with Tim Storm and himself.


“So for example, this first one, we’re going ahead with myself and Mike Bennett in the main event,” Aldis said. “We felt like Mike had an interesting story to tell, and that’s really what we’ve always tried to do in the space to make ourselves different is to pick the guys that we feel have the unique story to tell and tell it in a way that other shows are not always able to do because they’ve got to try to fit so many guys into so many segments with a set schedule. We don’t have that.

“We have the ability to kind of luxuriate on a story like we did with Tim Storm or with me or with other people that we’ve worked with, and and that’s proven to be the way that’s been successful for us because ultimately, people gotta care about you before they pay to see you or before they watch your show. If we would have come right out of the blocks with Powerrr, the show still would have received an amount of critical acclaim because of the quality and the production and the uniqueness of it compared to all the other stuff being done, but it wouldn’t have had the same impact because they wouldn’t have cared about the key characters, they would have cared about me, Tim, you know Camille and later on in Thunder Rosa and other people that we’ve been able to kind of build off of that.”

Nick Aldis also spoke about how his role within the company has changed after David Lagana was let go following sexual allegations made against him.

“I was heavily involved anyway. I don’t think that’s any secret,” Aldis noted. “The only that I’ve taken more of an active role in since David’s departure is some of the actual physical production of stuff simply because we’ve defined a certain style for ourselves, and we sort of realized in our period of inactivity that it was going to take just as long again to find somebody with the skill set but then also to kind of get them up to speed on how we tell the story because previously, the relationship was basically a lot of it, I would describe in my mind’s eye. What I could see and then David would put it into action.

“Now, I’m certainly not doing it alone, but I’ve taken more of an active role in that. The NWA was never one person. We had some incredible production talent working on Powerrr and working on post-production like Karen Tran, Billy Trask, Dan Schram and Ary Dalton. A lot of it is just sort of piecing together the input from different people, and obviously, it’s all overseen by Billy. Billy has the final say on everything. Billy’s the overriding kind of creative vision.”

Unfortunately, today it has been confirmed that NWA’s Jocephus, AKA The Question Mark has sadly passed away.

Jocephus (real name Joseph Hudson) has sadly passed away due to an undiagnosed medical issue, which has been confirmed by NWA’s President, Billy Corgan.


Jocephus, is a former NWA Southern Heavyweight Champion and spent more than 10 years with NWA, being best known for his work with Aran Stevens.

Corgan announced the news with the following statement:

It’s with a heavy heart that I share that my friend and brother in wrestling, Joseph Hudson, has passed away suddenly from an as-yet undiagnosed medical issue. NWA fans would know him as Jocephus as well as The Question Mark; where thanks to the great fans at GPB Studios in Atlanta, Joseph was able to receive the kind support in the ring he’d always dreamt of. He is survived by a young son whom he loved dearly, and if anything would pain him about leaving this earth it would be not being able to be there for his boy. RIP Joseph, love to you and Godspeed.

Several people within the wrestling world have reacted to the news, sharing their tributes to him.

Everyone at ProWrestling.com would like to offer condolences to the family and friends of Joseph Hudson at this time.

Nick Aldis Discusses The Upcoming Return Of NWA Powerr

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis recently spoke about the current plans for the return of NWA Powerr.

The show is set to return in 2021 following a break due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but there is currently no date attached to when that will be.


However, during a recent interview with ‘The Wrestling’s Cool’ podcast, Nick Aldis gave a hint at those plans, stating that he was “conservatively guessing” things will be back for Spring. He also revealed he has reached out to a few people he would like to be involved, but didn’t want to name any names.

“Depends on when we start up again. I would conservatively be guessing that we’ll be ready to do Powerrr again by the spring, and so I know who I — and it’s not up to me. I have obviously a fairly significant amount of influence, but I know who I would like to see on the show and there’s a few guys who I’ve reached out to and I’ve talked to Billy [Corgan] and Pat Kenney [Simon Diamond] and said, ‘Look, I’ve got this idea for this guy.’ But, I’m reluctant to say too much because one, given our track record of getting guys over and recognizing talent, the second I say their names, someone else is gonna try and sign them, and two because who knows what’s gonna happen with them between now and the spring? Some of them may end up signing a contract somewhere else so I don’t want to — I just don’t want that attention to go there.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)
