NWA Powerr Zicky Dice

In an interview with Fightful, Zicky Dice spoke about his time in NWA now that he’s a free agent, hinting that NWA Champion Nick Aldis tried to hurt his career. Here are highlights:

On reports about his time in NWA: “Let me start off by saying something before things get miscued. A lot of people listening and watching right now — some words i may say might tear their thin skin right off the bat. So I want to clear the air and say this, ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice was forever grateful for the opportunities that Billy Corgan and the NWA have presented. Very grateful. I was very proud to be a part of it and I was very proud to have won the Television Championship from Ricky Starks and start my title reign. This was supposed to be my breakout. Before we dive in deep here, let me let me start off by saying when I was when I was invited to the NWA, deep down I knew that it was going to be a lily pad for ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice. NWA was meant to bounce me to the next stage that I wanted. The bigger stage that I feel that I deserve where I can really let my wings go and see the full potential of ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice. We had talked once before, you know I wrestled for Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, Billy Corgan saw me there invited me to the first tapings in December of 2019 and then that led to me winning the championship in January, where I was then offered a contract.”

On the contract NWA offered him: “I was told that I would be offered something that I was happy and comfortable with and I was like, ‘okay, this is good.’ Then I come to find out I was offered $250 a month as Television Champion. I turned that contract down. Nope. No disrespect, no offense, but I’m good. I don’t need to sell ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice for 250 bucks a month. Turned that down got a call from Billy Corgan and we raised it up a little bit more during the pandemic. ‘Zicky, if you move to Atlanta, we’ll pay you more. Zicky, if people turn down their contracts, we’ll pay you more Zicky if you over-deliver we’ll pay you more. These are all things that I heard. What did I do? I got my own camera crew. I got a guy that can write jingles that’s released platinum records. I’ve been taking over entertainment. So what did I do? I over-delivered every single time. Go ahead and look back at those Carnyland episodes. Look at the quality of the content that I sent in look at how clear — the high-resolution, the editing, that was all done here. So I over-delivered, I made sure because I wanted to take the brand to the next level. To circle around, I started seeing a lot of empty promises and a lot of true colors coming out. It started changing the way I looked at the brand and my job. So there was an email that was sent out and I know you had reached out to me about this comment before and my reply was, ‘outlandish.’ I did not speak on a single word of this for the last nine months. I didn’t say a damn thing.”

On wanting to leave: “There was an email sent out that was like, ‘hey, if anyone doesn’t believe in the vision moving forward, speak up.’ So I raised my hand. I said, ‘listen with all due respect as your Television Champion, I’m willing to do work. I’m willing to do another season. I will go and wrestle at AEW or one of these other stages — which is baffling to me as a Television Champion, I didn’t even get to defend on YouTube. I think it’s do any of that. I didn’t get the in see ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice on TNT on Wednesday nights when his co-workers were up there. You didn’t see any of that shit. They didn’t even post about my birthday. They post about everybody else’s birthday except for ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice. The NWA did not wish me a happy birthday this year, and how do you think that makes me feel? It hurts my little itty-bitty feelings sometimes. But you know, as a wise man once said, ‘if you’re going to sign on the dotted line, don’t don’t bitch about it,’ you know, and I did I signed on the dotted line and I continued to over-deliver and try and make the best out of what it was.”

On the stories he had backstage heat: “I saw some of that so I knew going in and I made an impact in NWA right off the bat. You can go back and watch the very first episode of Powerrr, I come out, there’s murmurs. I remember hearing people [say] ‘who is this?’ By the end, I had everyone booing me by the end of the match go ahead and watch it back. I was able to take control of the masses and some people didn’t like that. Some people thought that I came into NWA like I owned the place or that was some big shot. No, I just came to do what I do best and that’s entertain and grab the attention, steal the attention from the room so that led to you know, I didn’t hear back from Billy, but then I see some of these big dirt sheets with these fabricated stories about how ‘Outlandish’ Zicky Dice had major locker room heat backstage and it seems like somebody was trying to sabotage my career. I don’t know what’s causing Al-dis, I’m sorry, ‘all this.’ I don’t know what could have caused something like that. But I feels like someone was trying to sabotage me from behind from moving on what’s next because I didn’t have heat with anybody except for one person I butted heads with and that was that.”
