Aldis touches on WWE as well.
While speaking to Metro, Aldis told the outlet that he feels IMPACT is a great fit for him. On the topic of WWE, Aldis said everything comes down to timing.
It is (IMPACT is a great fit for me), but as far as WWE, timing is everything. I don’t wanna speak to it too much, but timing was a big factor. I think everyone knows that there’s a lot going on there. Who knows?
He would go on to stress that he does not want to imply or suggest there was a choice on the table as it relates to WWE. Aldis said it would be dishonest of him to put that out there. He added that it’s more about what’s the best option for him right now.
Within his comment, he mentioned that it was ‘heartbreaking’ to see a lot of his work get undone in the National Wrestling Alliance.
I don’t wanna speak too much about my conversations with (WWE). And I certainly don’t want to imply or suggest that I had a choice of anywhere to go. That would be disingenuous or dishonest. It’s more about, what’s the best option right now? I did need a little bit of a mental break – because I did put a lot of pressure on myself. I’ll be honest, it was kinda heartbreaking to see a lot of my work get undone at the NWA. I needed a bit of time to just process it and go, hey, what they decide to do now that you’re gone is none of your concern. Your body of work will live on through your fans and that’s it. You build this brand for yourself. (Mickie James) was good at restoring that confidence in me as well.
There is going to be coverage here on POST Wrestling of the Under Siege fallout episode of IMPACT on AXS on June 1st.
