The claim is that Aldis will defend the title 20 times over a 60 day period

So basically three times a week. Whee?!?!?!?!

That's almost 4 times as many defenses as Brock's had in a year.

Have they played up the fact he's the first and only UK wrestler to hold that belt?

Gary Steele was champ for a week in 1999, so that's his honour...

Sabu's NWA Title victory isn't on tape but Gary Steele winning and losing the Championship are. What a world we live in.

I love what they’re doing with Storm here. Great promo, fun match, awesome storytelling.

Long story short - Tommy Dreamer is getting a shot at the title.

That isn't really helping the WHAT YOUNGSTER CAN THE NWA BUILD ON!!! talk

NWA could do worse than putting the belt on Sam Adonis.  

They could put it on, say. Nick Aldis.

Oh..... :(

Apparently Aldis is defending the title at Coventry Pro Wrestling as part of his UK tour. I'm not opposed to Aldis as champion, but having your belt defended at only the 2nd biggest company in Cov doesn't exactly shine a spotlight on your title

Can they call him Ellsworth? I would have assumed WWE owns the rights to the name.

He said on Jericho's podcast that James Ellsworth is his first and middle name.

It's his real first and middle name, so I assume they can't trademark it. They certainly couldn't stop him from being James Ellsworth Morris.

Remember when we believed in Billy, that he would change the wrestling landscape with the NWA revival?

somehow this is more embarrassing than the Tharpe and post-WCW 90s eras

The videos were great. But I said it way back after the first Storm/Aldis match: they need guys who can work a modem style if they are going to succeed.

Aldis confuses me. Multiple promoters now have seen him as a top guy, despite crowds pretty much never caring about him anywhere.

can we just admit that they are just trying ANYTHING not to have an Aldis vs Jocephus title match.  I mean he wins a hardcore match to become the #1 contender and now he seems to 3rd in line for a title shot

Why? Because there isn’t a bunch of dives and “this is awesome” chants?

He’s doing a different product focusing on story and characters, instead of following the rest of the mark catering herd.

Just put the belt on Austin Aries already, so he can carry a bunch of titles around Ultimo Dragon style.

I’m assuming Hornswoggle will get the next shot.  And then David Arquette

...and Madusa, then Ed Ferrara, still doing his shitty JR impersonation

It's not like Ellsworth beat him. They had a match, Ellsworth believe it or not has some buzz right now. He's not gonna be Champ but fuck use him while people still give a fuck. I think the NWA title should be on someone a little more contemporary but everyone who would be a credible champ is signed to somebody be it ROH, LU, WWN or Impact. I'd put the belt of Jeff Cobb once his Lucha Underground contract runs out.
