Nick Aldis addresses rumors that he is retired from wrestling since he started working as a WWE producer

Nick Aldis, who has been working for WWE in a producer role over the past several weeks, appeared on the Niko Knows Best podcast and addressed rumors that he is retired as a wrestler…

“It’s sort of a blessing and curse of wrestling media and that sort of appetite that fans have for information and wanting to be the first to break stuff all the time. But it’s like, it makes it very difficult to even sort of have a conversation or even sort of try something without people putting some sort of finality on it and immediately go, ‘Oh, that’s it.’ Like, he’s doing this, he’s doing that. Nothing like that is in place. And I don’t know why.”

“But, again, I guess because of the discussions about, you know, a different role, immediately it sort of jumps to [the] conversation, ‘Oh, he’s not wrestling anymore. He’s retiring. That’s it. Is he done wrestling?’ I’m going like, ‘What? Hold on, I’m 36 years old guys.’ (…) You know, I’m very much in my prime. I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, where does all this discussion about me being done [with] wrestling come from?’ Everyone just needs to chill.” (quotes courtesy of
