Austin Aries is the special guest on the latest episode of X-Pac12360. He talked about the kind of Pro-Wrestling Promotion he’d like to work with and endless opportunities besides Impact Wrestling.
Here are Austin Aries’ thoughts on being contacted by Impact Wrestling After WWE Departure:
“We had some talks but really for me, the only position I was interested in there was the position of being a decision maker. I told Dixie (Carter) when I left there I wouldn’t come back and work for anybody. But If I was going to come back there (Impact), that I had to be in a position to make a difference. I know they just went through a big régime change, I know we had some discussion about me coming in there and possibly being part of the team. But I know where I am right now in my career and all the possibilities and things I have in front of me, I really couldn’t invest myself emotionally into that because let’s be honest they’ve got a lot of work to do there. They’ve done a lot of bad business over the years and they’ve got a lot to overcome. And I think the guys there know that and I wish them luck.”
In other news, Chris Jericho told that he had revealed his NJPW plans to Vince Mcmahon six weeks prior to the official announcement. He also said McMahon was surprisingly excited about the match.
Here’s a quote from his interview with Busted Open Radio:
“I know he wasn’t upset because I called him six weeks before and told him as soon as the deal was done,” Jericho said. “I would never surprise him like that. I didn’t ask him for his permission, but I didn’t have to. I told him what was going on and to be quite frank with you guys, he was super excited about it… Obviously, his mission is to seek and destroy and kill every other company, but I think he secretly likes it when other companies do good, because it just makes it better for his company. And when Chris Jericho goes to New Japan, everyone knows I’m not a New Japan guy, I’m a WWE guy.”
Stay tuned for further Pro-Wrestling updates, and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments.
