NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis appeared on Busted Open Radio this week. He spoke about wanting to see Curtis Axel (aka Joe Hennig) join the NWA roster for their upcoming return. Below is an excerpt (via Fightful).
“The one that stands out to me, I’ve known him since Harley Race’s camp, and felt like he was never utilized to even close to his full potential; I’d love to see Joe Hennig [aka Curtis Axel] show up in the NWA and see what he can do. From a selfish standpoint, to be able to tell that story of his lineage and legacy, a guy like him could be revitalized by the way we do content. There are a ton of names. A lot of names returning from previous seasons and a lot of new faces. I can’t wait to see it.”
Curtis Axel signed with WWE in 2007. He was released from the company in April 2020 along with many others. During his career, he became WWE Intercontinental champion and a two-time Raw tag team champion with David Otunga and Bo Dallas. NWA returns to regular programming with the Back for the Attack pay-per-view event on March 21. It will be available on FITE TV. NWA Powerrr will then return weekly on FITE starting on March 23.
