It looks like Anthem is interested in bringing back a former TNA World Champion. Dave Meltzer reported on Friday that TNA has made a contract offer to bring back Nick Aldis (aka Magnus). At press time, the deal has not been completed but the talks are said to be significant.
Aldis, 30, signed with TNA Wrestling in 2008 as Brutus Magnus. He was largely used as a mid-card/occasional upper-card wrestler during most of his tenure with the company. I always felt that he should have been pushed at the top of the card and he is someone that comes off as a credible champion with a good look and he is a very good in-ring worker. I am kind of surprised that WWE hasn’t made a play to sign him.
Aldis left TNA in 2015 and went on to work for Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling where he captured the GFW World Championship. Aldis is the husband of Mickie James.
