ALDIS & MURDOCH: A TEN POUNDS OF GOLD SPECIAL
– Aldis & Murdoch had a sit-down interview with Brian Stull from NationalWrestlingAlliance.com
– Murdoch discussed his journey in pro wrestling and plugged his upcoming match with Mike Knox at NWA Hards Times 2.
– Aldis talked about his journey and how he got into contact with Harley Race.
– Aldis said that he never felt animosity towards Murdoch during their feud, it was the spirit of competition. The situation with Thomas Latimer is much different for obvious reasons. For him it’s unacceptable that his best friend would try to make a name out of himself at his expense. Aldis knows that he has temper issues, but he has to find a way to balance those emotions in their match at Hard Times 2 with the edict that was passed down by Billy Corgan.
– Aldis expects Murdoch to embarrass Mike Knox for thinking he could come into the NWA and get automatic title shots. Aldis knew the threat Murdoch was to the ten pounds of gold during their rivalry.
