NWA star Trevor Murdoch recently spoke to Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone, during the interview Murdoch talked about his decision to return to wrestling.
“Of course. That was part of it, and it really came down to NWA saying—they had literally convinced me [to come back]. I had met up with at Harley’s funeral, the current NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis, and Dave Lagana, at the time was the executive producer. They said come to one taping, just bring your gear and we ain’t have a match booked for you but you can agent some other matches. Just come down, and it literally took them about a half an hour to convince me because I had felt like maybe my time had passed in the business, and they really convinced me that that wasn’t the case at all. When I flew down and showed up at GPB Studios, the first thing they asked me was ‘do you have your gear with you?’ I said, ‘yeah, I’m a wrestler…’ and they said ’OK, you’re wrestling Ricky Starks.’ I had a great match with Ricky and I came to the back, my confidence is up and I got pulled to the side, they said ‘you’ve got way more in the tank.’ They said, ‘We think there’s some longevity with you and we’d like to have you stick around.’ With the response I got from people, it wasn’t hard to come back.”
