Nick Aldis wins NWA Worlds Heavyweight championship from Cody Rhodes


The NWA 70th Anniversary show hit Nashville, Tennessee tonight (Oct. 21, 2018) for an event headlined by Cody Rhodes defending the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match against the man he took the title from at ALL IN, Nick Aldis.

Or attempting to, at least.

Aldis took the first fall with the Cloverleaf:

Cody won the second fall with the Cross Rhodes, but only after Aldis had put himself through a table on a diving elbow to the outside:

They went back-and-forth from there but it was Aldis reversing a cradle after Cody lost a shoe on a Cloverleaf attempt that got the final pinfall, giving Aldis the title back not even two months after he lost it.

It was something of a surprise, and Cody simply left disappointed just after. The timing of it all will likely get people talking.
