During a recent interview with SK Wrestling, WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long spoke about Nick Aldis joining WWE, after he left IMPACT Wrestling again.

Teddy stated that he’s concerned that Aldis might get wasted in WWE.

Nick Aldis used to be a big fish in a small pond, when he was with the National Wrestling Alliance as their Worlds Heavyweight Champion, but in WWE, he would be a small fish in a big pond.

Here’s what Teddy Long had to say about recent reports of WWE using Aldis as a Backstage Producer on this past Monday’s RAW after SummerSlam:

“I think that there’s still money in Nick Aldis, I think they should be using him on TV.

I agree he could go to ‘NXT’ and be a great trainer, but he ain’t ready for that, there’s still money in this guy man, why waste him down there?

Put him on TV and put him in a good story with somebody.

They gotta build the guy, so don’t give him to Cody right away.

Let him make a name for himself there, let him get some credibility there, let him build him, and then slide him into Cody and you stop by Cody one day and say ‘Hey, I ain’t forgot about you’, and then keep on walking.”

Nick Aldis first appeared in Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) in 2008 as Brutus Magnus and later went just by ‘Magnus’, even managing to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in December 2013.

Magnus was released in June 2015 and joined Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling (GFW) the next day, where he eventually became the inaugural GFW Global Champion in October 2015.

In September 2017 Aldis joined the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), that had been purchased by Billy Corgan a few months earlier, and ended up becoming the longest reigning NWA World Heavyweight Champion of the modern era, when he held the title from October 21st 2018 until August 29th 2021 (after already holding the belt from 2017 till 2018).

He left the NWA in November 2022 and briefly returned to IMPACT Wrestling in 2023.
