Nick Aldis Discusses Potential WWE In-Ring Future

Nick Aldis Discusses Potential WWE In-Ring Future WWE

Amidst his current role on WWE television, SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis has discussed his potential WWE in-ring future.

In October 2023, former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis made his WWE on-screen debut and was announced as the SmackDown General Manager.

Aldis has established himself as a “no nonsense” authority figure in the role, dealing with the likes of Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes, Paul Heyman and more.

Speaking with Gorilla Position, Nick Aldis was asked whether he still has the desire to step back in the ring to wrestle again. He answered:

“Sure. It’s tough to answer this simply because I don’t want to ever give the impression that I’m trying to angle for something or go into something for myself. It’s unavoidable.”

“I’ve seen a ton of sentiment from fans ‘we want to see you wrestle this guy.’ I appreciate all that. It’s not something I have any control or influence over.”

“It’s very much a case of, when Paul [Triple H] and I first started speaking, I made it very clear that ‘I want to be part of the team and contribute in whatever way you think is best.’”

“If, at some point, [getting in the ring] is best then great. The GM conversation was the shortest conversation of my career. Bruce (Prichard) called me, ‘General Manager of SmackDown.’ ‘Great, when do I start?’”

“They laid out the terms and money, ‘All sounds great, let’s do it.’ Immediately, I said to my wife [Mickie James], ‘I’m going to try and be the best GM of all time.’ That’s all you can do,”

There is no word or update on when Nick Aldis will return to in-ring action at the time of this writing.
