After Nick Aldis announced that he was giving notice to the National Wrestling Alliance, the promotion has announced that he is suspended.
NWA COO Joe Calli confirmed that Aldis is under contract through December 31 and he added that this is not a wrestling storyline.
Aldis was scheduled to wrestle Odinson at the Hard Times 3 pay-per-view but because of the suspension, a replacement will be named for Aldis. Aldis' departure means that he will become a free agent on January 1st.
The promotion issued the following statement to PWInsider:

ABOUT THE NATIONAL WRESTLING ALLIANCE
Founded in 1948, the National Wrestling Alliance is one of the oldest and most prestigious professional wrestling brands in the world. In 2017, international recording artist William Patrick Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) purchased the NWA with the intention of reinventing the brand for the modern era whilst honoring the legacy of its heyday in the 1980s. Beginning with the critically-acclaimed Ten Pounds Of Gold docu-series, the NWA has since expanded its programming to include two weekly broadcasts (NWA Powerrr & NWA USA) and 6 annual pay-per-views, all of which are available via NWA All Access, our paid subscription service on Triller's FITE streaming platform. Replays of NWA Powerrr and premieres of NWA USA are also available on the NWA YouTube channel.
