Report: Former World Champion fielding offer from TNA

Magnus GFW

According to a report from F4WOnline, former TNA World Champion and Tag Champion ‘Magnus’ Nick Aldis has been offered a contract to return to the company. No deal has been signed just quite yet, but the report suggests that the talks between the two sides are in fact serious ones.

Magnus signed with TNA originally back in 2008 but ultimately made the decision to leave the company soon after:

“It was my decision. The way my contract was structured, without getting too detailed, they couldn’t release me. There was something in there that prevented that, which was nice. It was due to roll over at the end of June. At the beginning of June I decided to give them notice that they hadn’t contacted me regarding anything. It was structured that if they hadn’t made contact about it a month out, I had the option to end it. There was a brief conversation, it was really friendly. I think they knew how I felt, and I knew they were in a position financially where it was getting difficult for them to honor contracts like mine. Not trying to disclose too much, but I got it on pretty good authority from the office that I was in the upper echelon as pay is concerned. I knew they weren’t in a position to offer the same structure. A year ago I had made peace with the idea of leaving. I always delivered everything they gave me whether I liked it or not. I knew in my gut a year ago I wasn’t going to stay.”

    I don’t think so… never can tell. Try not to assume anything.

    Agreed. Escalate his career… this is his best move.

    Just look at these clickbait piece of crap article titles. “Former world champion returning”. Why not just say “Former TNA star returning to company?” or “Former TNA Champion set to return?”.

    And look at this 5th grade level of annotation here: “No deal has been signed just quite yet, but the report suggests that the talks between the two sides are in fact serious ones.” — I mean, really dipshit? We can probably figure out from the tiny snippet you “reported” (plagiarized from another site more like) that it isn’t a guarantee. This is seriously high school sophomore quality level.

    Edit: At least this time the picture portrays the person the article is about instead of using someone who is a big star that would never work there anyway. Like make this article title with a pic of Brock to imply that Brock “might” be the guy so you click the article and… it’s just that magnus guy. Ugh, I hate this website’s low standards at times.

    Any of us could do better by “working” for 15 mins a day on Google to find articles to plagiarize while changing the good grammar to typos as is standard for this site.

    And how have those JJ ventures gone? Not well? How about JJ as a star after WWE? No? Didn’t think so. He was always overrated anyway.

    I don’t think Vince cares where Magnus works for. Either he is a “superstar” or “just a guy” and Vince seems to have a belief that 9/10 stars in the indies are “just a guy”. I am not sure where Magnus falls on the scale Nash called “Vanilla midgets” (a wrestler who is generally plain, kinda boring, not too much going on in the character and mic skills department, looks like a normal dude instead of a professional athlete).

    I bet Magnus, if he went to WWE would be exposed as a 7/10, which isn’t a bad thing by any means – but it does mean he will need some work before he could start regularly jobbing to Tyler Breeze, Fandango, Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin. I wish I could see him winning the new Europe title or winning the US title and rechristening it as the “UK Championship”.

    I would rather him go to NXT and see how far he can take his career.


    I have made $104k previous year by working on-line from home a­­n­­d I manage to earn that much by wor­king part time f­o­r few hours a day. I was following work model I stumbled upon online and I am thrilled that i earned so much extra income. It’s very beginner-friendly a­n­d I am just so happy that i found this. Here is what i did… STATICTAB.COM/astkxim

    I could also easily say that WWE would be a fool to not add someone of his caliber to the RAW roster which desperately needs more juice to keep up with Smackdown.

    If he is pretty “well off” now as you say then he doesn’t need to take handouts from WWE just to be there. As we know, just “being on the roster” doesn’t guarantee anything.

    It’s also possible that he never even considered WWE. Again, if someone is financially stable it’s better to have the freedom to call your own shots.

    I think his affiliation with Jeff Jarrett’s GFW doesn’t do him any favors with Vince either. Vince HATES people that prove they can be successful without him after he’s left them for dead.

    I’d imagine that he’s pretty well off by now. Plus, he’d be working with his wife in the “big leagues”. Anyone would be a fool to not take that deal instantly if it was put on the table.

  • D2K

    Either that or they low-balled him.

    Comes across like that, doesn’t it.

  • Mrdr3w

    I guess this means WWE didn’t want him.

  • D2K

    I’m starting to wonder. Is this guy someone’s kid of on of the people that run this site? It seems that way when you look at the volume of errors and types of errors.

    dont expect Diaz to check his facts

  • pitfallharry219

    He was there 7 years. That’s not what I’d call leaving “soon after” signing with the company.
