Austin Aries discusses AEW, his current situation and future plans


Austin Aries is a professional wrestler that has performed in nearly all of the top wrestling organizations in the world including WWE, Ring of Honor, Impact Wrestling and many more. However, since his departure from Impact Wrestling last fall, he has been very low key. With the pro wrestling landscape rapidly changing and Aries not currently signed to any long-term contract, many options are currently available to him.

After quite a long hiatus, The FightBox Podcast is back with this exclusive interview with the first ever two-time RoH Champion. “A Double” discusses his thoughts on the one topic that has captivated fans around the world - the creation of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and the potential that this new pro wrestling promotion brings to the table. Aries is certainly excited to see how a WWE competitor such as AEW will develop, saying:

“I’m going to sit back and watch this, because this is a changing in the way that I think the wrestling industry can be done and we’re going to see how the model runs and is successful.”

Aries goes on to discuss other subjects such as potential dream opponents that he has yet to work with, naming two individuals from AEW. He also talks about how he is feeling physically after nearly 20 years as a pro wrestler, how much longer he thinks he can be active in the ring and what he has planned for the near future.

This clip is part of a longer full-length interview with Austin that will appear as part of a new series of podcasts produced by The FightBox Podcast entitled “The Other Side of the Ropes”. Stay tuned for more details.
