Insider source BWE is reporting that WWE almost brought in former TNA & NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis (fka Magnus) as a surprise entrant in the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match:

“He was close to be debuting at Royal Rumble. This time it will happen surely.”

In the main event of the recent IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary 2023 pay-per-view, Alex Shelley defeated Aldis to retain the IMPACT World Championship.

With this loss, Aldis’ short-term deal with IMPACT came to an end and he is a Free Agent again.

According to PWInsider, WWE is interested in signing Aldis, but as a backstage producer, not a wrestler:

“Numerous WWE sources confirmed that there is high interest in former NWA and TNA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, now that he is free and clear.

We have heard from sources today that Aldis’ name has been discussed internally as a potential Producer for the company in recent weeks.

The talk today was that he may go through a trial process for that role as soon as next month.

As we reported at the onset of the year, there was interest in Aldis, at the time as a wrestler, around the Royal Rumble, after he exited the NWA.

Aldis exited IMPACT Wrestling after a short-term agreement expired. His IMPACT run went as planned in terms of timeline, we are told.”
