Billy Corgan Replaces Nick Aldis With Tyrus In Title Match At NWA 74


Nick Aldis is no longer the #1 contender to the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title. Billy Corgan changed the title match for NWA 74 after Aldis accused Corgan (on Twitter) of “goalpost-moving”. He suggested that “forces” were going to take him out of the match, writing:

“I told you I would out think them all. No matter what kind of goalpost-moving goes on, I find a way to win. But I’m not naive; I know there are forces who don’t want to see me as champion again, and a lot can happen between now and #NWA74…your move…”

In response, Corgan appeared on Busted Open Radio this morning and announced that he had removed Aldis from the match, saying:

“The good news is the growth of the NWA and the Resurgence of the NWA in the modern era, is bringing pressure inside the locker room. Everybody is jousting for position, as they should be. But in the case of Nick Aldis, yes, number one contender for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship against Trevor Murdoch in St. Louis, I’ve dealt with this man for over four years and for every ounce of politicking that you see publicly, there’s about ten times worse behind the scenes.

No one stresses me out more in the NWA than Nick Aldis . No one is more highly paid than Nick Aldis, and no one is more unhappy than Nick Aldis. “So yes, Nick Aldis won a tournament, the Race to the Chase, to become the number one contender… I mean, I’m 55 years old. I’ve got two little kids, I’ve got a musical life, this kind of junk, I just can’t take it anymore. So, I’m here to break some news. He has been stripped of the number one contendership and will not be in the main event at NWA 74.”

As a result, Billy Corgan is giving the World Television Champion Tyrus the opportunity to face Trevor Murdoch for the Worlds Heavyweight Championship. You can see the reactions on Twitter below:
