Trevor Murdoch Discusses Joining NWA & Who He’d Like To Face In AEW

Published

NWA’s Trevor Murdoch recently appeared on The Angle Podcast where he discussed how he joined the company, and possible AEW matches.

Murdoch admitted that he was taking time away from wrestling in order to look after the late, Harley Race. It was actually at his funeral when he had a conversation with Nick Aldis and Dave Lagana.


“I was on my way out. I was dealing with some things with Harley as his health was declining, and I was virtually ready to hang up the boots,” Murdoch said. “Harley had passed away, and a representative of NWA and the Real World’s Champion, Nick Aldis, and Dave Lagana showed up to Harley’s funeral, and after the funeral, they had a conversation with me and convinced me to come down and do one show.”

Recently we have seen AEW and NWA have a connection, with the NWA Women’s Championship being defended on several AEW shows. Murdoch spoke about the possibility of appearing on AEW at some point, and who he’d like to face on the show.

“I can definitely see myself doing that for a couple of shots. I would really like to work with FTR, whether it be tagging with them or tagging against them,” Murdoch said. “I think we can really create some amazing matches. I’ve actually contacted a couple of those guys. It’d be badass to have an old-school trio like the Freebird days. If that happens, it’d be awesome.” (H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.)

Nick Aldis Discusses First Working With Kamille & Thunder Rosa Working For AEW

Published

Nick Aldis

Nick Aldis recently spoke with the Straight Talk Wrestling Podcast where he reflected on working with Kamille for the first time.

The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion first started working with Kamille during his storyline with Cody Rhodes, while he admitted that originally he hoped to work with his wife, Mickie James, Kamille was someone who was brought to his attention.


“The whole story of the Chicago show [ALL IN] was that everything was in his [Cody Rhodes’] favor. It was his event, he picked the referee. He got to call his own shots and Brandi [Rhodes] interfered. So it was kind of like, we just kind of went — we just started there and went, ‘Okay, 2-out-of-3 Falls. Brian Hebner’s gonna be the referee this time, not Earl Hebner’ and then it was like, okay and then I said, ‘The major thing here is that Brandi got involved so, obviously it would have been great if I could’ve had Mickie [James] get involved but that wasn’t gonna be able to happen. She’s under contract to WWE.’ So I was kind of like, ‘Well, the next best thing’ and turned out to be a better thing in the long term was like, ‘Well what if I had a female enforcer?’ Because I wouldn’t have a valet, I wouldn’t have a romantic interest because again, everyone knows I’m married to Mickie so it’s like I always wanna do stuff that’s real, that feels authentic so I was kind of like, ‘But there’s no reason I can’t have a female enforcer specifically brought in to neutralize Brandi Rhodes’ and in describing this sort of character, Dave Lagana just said, ‘I know just the person. There’s someone I’ve been sort of keeping an eye on for the right time and the right spot, for the right moment and what about this girl [Kamille]?’ And God, they flew her out to Philadelphia I think to meet with me, just to sort of take her temperature on it and if we liked the fit, we’ll shoot some vignettes or whatever. I mean she just has a physical presence that’s second to none with women in the business and she just walks in and I’m right away, I’m just like, ‘Okay, yes, like 100 percent.’”

Aldis spoke about NWA allowing Thunder Rosa to work with AEW, which he says is bringing more eyeballs.

“Thunder Rosa, well, first of all, AEW reached out and specifically made that request because their women’s division needed — would benefit. Of course it did [benefit] and also, in spite of the fact that Rosa had done really well on her time in NWA Powerrr, she wasn’t as well established as the NWA Champion that I was, right? So it was kind of like — it made more sense [for her to go to AEW] and it was okay because the more eyeballs — she’s a phenomenal talent so the more eyeballs that could get on her, the better so that when we’re ready to operate again, we can take advantage of our asset.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)

Nick Aldis On If He Wants A Title vs. Title Match With Kenny Omega

Nick Aldis

Nick Aldis recently spoke with MuscleMan Malcolm about if he’d be interested in facing Kenny Omega in a title vs. title match.

AEW is currently opening the ‘Forbidden Door’ to the professional wrestling world, with the company having ties with both IMPACT Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. This has led to some speculation about if the company would work with the NWA down the line.


Aldis spoke about whether or not he’d be interested in a match with Kenny Omega which would see the NWA World Heavyweight Champion go against the AEW World Champion. However, Aldis believes there needs to be more incentive than just the AEW World Title, but he did note that if the right number of zeros are on the contract, he’d consider it.

“He’d have to put all those other belts up for grabs because what’s in it for me? The money has to be great and there has to be stakes. You can have as many belts as you want, but there is only one Ten Pounds of Gold. It would be interesting as incentive to humiliate these Stans that are praising him as the savior as wrestling. I hold the championship that has been held by Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, what do I need to prove to anyone? He has a two-year-old belt. Very shiny and ostentatious. I’m sure it would look nice in a hip-hop video from the early 2000s. Maybe Sisqo, a tricked-out low-rider. If the fans want to see it, you can let whoever you know, know. If they put the right number on zeros on the contract, we’ll make it happen. Otherwise, it’s mental masturbation.” (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions)

Omega will be involved in a title vs. title match in the near future though when he goes one on one with IMPACT’s World Champion, Rich Swann at IMPACT’s Rebellion event on April 24th.
