The Aldis Crusade with the Ten Pounds of Gold is now in full swing. With the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion racking up successful title defenses, Nick Aldis is well on his way to being talked about among the greats – Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, and Harley Race – that is if he can win them all.
Two of the highest profile title defenses so far took place on United Wrestling Network soil. Possibly the farthest apart of any two United companies, the NWA selected Championship Wrestling From Hollywood and IPW: UK to each host a major title defense. Hollywood saw Aldis defend against the popular James Ellsworth (who earned the opportunity by defeating former Worlds Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles) and the United Kingdom saw Aldis choose international attraction David Starr to challenge for the gold. Here is the full story, courtesy of the National Wrestling Alliance:
Nick Aldis is scheduled to make defenses at Xcite Wrestling on March 16 and, if still Champion, at Rocky Mountain Pro on March 17. For updates on United, the NWA, and The Aldis Crusade, make sure to check back with UnitedWrestlingTV.com.
