Former Impact World Champion Eli Drake has been announced as the latest NWA signing.
Drake was revealed as Nick Aldis’ tag team partner at ROH Best in the World last night. He came out and cut promo in which he mentioned that he is no longer a free agent.
During the pre-show, Aldis came out to reveal his tag team partner. James Storm came out and said he wasn’t his partner, but he wanted to know who it is. That’s when Aldis introduced Eli Drake.
Drake was fired from Impact Wrestling back in April when he criticised Impact’s booking. He didn’t want to wrestle in inter-gender matches and asked to be removed from a planned match with Tessa Blanchard.
The NWA had announced this week that Aldis’ tag team partner had signed an exclusive deal with them.
Colt Cabana was supposed to be Aldis’ tag team partner but pulled out due to a leg injury.
