Austin Aries: "TNA is going to be here for a long time to come"

Discussion in 'TNA iMPACT! (2011-2015)' started by Testify, Oct 20, 2013.

  1. TNA star Austin Aries spoke with Gordon Holmes of and was asked about big names leaving the company and other rumored TNA problems.

    "A lot of reports about problems with the company are from journalists who are trying to get clicks on their website," Aries said. "It seems like there’s a certain core of pundits who like to take any news with TNA and make it negative."

    "The fact is, the things going on in TNA, whether you’re talking about talents that are coming and going, that’s all part of a growing business. I think there’s almost a certain group of people who root for the company to go out of business just so they can say, 'I told you so.' Unfortunately for those people, I think TNA is going to be here for a long time to come.

    Aries was also asked to deliver a pitch for fans who are on the fence regarding Sunday's Bound For Glory pay-per-view.

    "We’re trying to bring pro wrestling back," he said. "We’re putting an emphasis on what happens in the ring while also having compelling characters and stories. Bound for Glory is our biggest show of the year. That’s where we’re going to pull out all the stops.

    "If you haven’t given Impact Wrestling a try, I think as a wrestling fan it’s an absolute must. Give us a shot and you’ll see we have the most talented performers in the whole world."

  2. Liked because you tagged her. Now I'm gonna read the report.
  3. Yeaaa Aries speaking the truth. Seems like he's very committed to TNA.
  4. Gotta love Aries. Respected man who speaks his mind but doesn't give shit-worthy opinions. Amazing wrestler as well.
  5. TNA actually reminds me(sometimes) of how the WWE/WWF was back in the middle 70's. Smaller rooms/attendence, But also interesting..

  6. I hope Aries is right for several reasons.

    I also figure that Booker T thought WCW would be around for a long time in January of 2001.

  7. I'm waiting for the emphasis on what happens in the ring. Every match had a screwy finish, and the main event was pretty far from a wrestling match. A lot of stalling, tons of interference, some chops, and AJ hit about 4-5 moves in the span of 15-20 minutes. Watching a guy do a somersault, smash through a table, and hit his face on the exposed concrete isn't focusing on wrestling. It's pretty much the complete opposite of that.

    There was so much stalling I almost fell asleep. It was tough to get through that entire show. Austin Aries is a company man, I guess that's okay for him, but that place is amateur hour 24/7.
