Nick Aldis Says Top AEW Star MJF Is A Fantastic Talent

Pro wrestling veteran and former NWA World's Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis recently appeared on the NotSam Wrestling podcast to talk about a variety of topics such as top AEW Star MJF being a fantastic talent, but the character he is portraying on television can be difficult.

Nick Aldis said:

“He’s a fantastic talent. Anyone who knows what they’re talking about, knows. I do think that you have to be careful with characters like that. It can become problematic, that’s not the right word, it can be difficult, to place them in a way that is beneficial to everyone. It’s NWA-syndrome a little bit.”

Nick Aldis also talked about the similarities of MJF's rise in AEW to the NWA being very important to WCW.

Nick Aldis said:

“The NWA was red hot and was very important to WCW, but at the same time, you’re on this fast downhill slope like skiing. ‘This is great, I’m going fast, the adrenaline is off the charts,’ what happens if you want to stop? How do I change the directions and get anyone else in this? It’s not impossible, but it is difficult to do. You can’t sacrifice your protagonists to keep feeding this beast without running the potential of harming them because now they go, ‘he gets to say and do whatever he wants and totally eviscerate me, but I’m limited in what I can say in return.”
