The following are highlights of Nick Aldis’s interview with Jordan Garber of the NOW podcast conducted last Tuesday. Aldis wrestled as Magnus in TNA. The interview was conducted during the recent CWE tour, which you can check out CWE by visiting their website at The program is available via by clicking on the “On Demand” or “2016 Archives” tab.

On Leaving TNA: It’s no secret at this point that my departure from there was because of money, but also because of a failed relationship with the guy in charge and that is as much my fault as it is his fault.

On winning the GFW Title: I told Jeff Jarrett of course I’d work for you, I’ll help you out. Then we did the TV taping’s in (Las) Vegas, which were phenomenal. I had no idea. He just said your gonna win and you’re gonna be the champion and I said fantastic. Thanks. It was just business. I guess he just deemed I was the suitable candidate.

On the potential end of TNA: It would be sad. If it’s not going to be in a good place, then it may be a better thing. If they get acquired by WWE, it won’t be the worst thing in the world. If they are going to cease operating, at least they could live forever on the Network and have a good legacy. I hope everyone there is having fun and continuing to make money.

(Jordan Garber NOW airs Tuesday nights at 11:30 p.m. ET on the VOC Nation Radio Network
