Former NWA & TNA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis officially debuted on WWE TV last week, as the new General Manager of SmackDown.

During an interview with TV Insider, Mickie James revealed that her husband Aldis had an offer from AEW a few years ago, but he turned it down because of their child.

Below is what the former multi-time Women’s Champion said:

“It’s really interesting when I was back at WWE there was an opportunity for Nick to go to AEW. He turned it down because it was too much on our family for him to be on the road full-time along with me.

Our son Donovan was 3 or 4 (years old). I think about it now, and it has shifted. Nick has deserved this opportunity for a long time. A lot of people don’t realize he has been at this for almost 20 years I’d say. The way our careers have gone.

It’s weird not really being in the same place for long, but I think it’s by design. We have to do our best for our son first. That means someone has to have a lighter schedule. Business picked up for the Aldis family.

In the wrestling world, if people don’t know who Nick Aldis is, they will. He is an incredible talent.”
