Austin Aries interview, comments on current state of ROH

    Aries is the man. The entire interview is worth reading, but I found a few quotes to be especially hilarious/interesting.
    (ignore the last question of the interview, it's a bit dated, pre-lockdown)

    Q. You have become the longest reigning X-Division champion in TNA history, what an achievement.
    Q. What do you make of the current state of ROH?

  2. He's right about ROH changing, but then again it had to if it wanted to grow. Either way another great A double interview, I like how he mixes some comedy in there.
  3. "I don't really have any thoughts on the situation. There's lots of chefs in the kitchen, I'm given the recipe from those guys and I just go out there and cook up some greatness. I never really had many major issues with Vince Russo one way or the other and didn't really react with him a whole lot, but hopefully he is happy in what ever he is doing now and I know TNA will keep doing what we do.

    I liked that metaphor.
  4. Aries is such a boss :boss:
  5. The true proffesional and honest boss. Proud of him.

  6. Aries si over exeggerating, IMO. ROH is very different now, but not so much in a negative way. They're gone corporate now, and they're in a transition period now, booking wise especially. And there's a shitload of good things happening in ROH right now:

    - Kevin Steen
    - Jimmy Jacobs heel turn
    - DemBoys are great characters and mega over
    - Mike Bennett
    - Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly in main event scene
    - ROH vs. CHIKARA
    - ROH Wrestling is the best show on TV
    - new markets

    Sure, there's a lot of negativities too (Davey, World Title booking, TV Title booking, Proving Ground, etc.), but things are far from being very bad.
  7. I agree with most of your post, but his comment about it being Smokey Mountain of Honor was still hilarious. Hopefully Davey just gets the fuck out after he drops the belt to Steen next month. He is such a boring little bitch.
