Pro Wrestling star Austin Aries recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet about a number of topics. Including his “no sell” at Impact’s Bound For Glory PPV, his thoughts on Jim Cornette, Mark Madden, being fired from WWE and more. You can watch the video below and check out our highlights.
Aries on his no sell at Bound For Glory-
“The part where I got up and walked off and fucked everyone off and shit. Like you know, I didn’t go into business for myself, there were other people that were aware what was going to happen. There was a plan for me to return. It was my idea, it was an idea I pitched for a reason. (It was approved) by the people who needed to know….it garnered the reaction and result I wanted.
On Jim Cornette-
“One of the greatest fucking managers ever, I grew up watching this guy. I was super excited and stoked when I was being in brought in to work with him. And super disappointed to see like how he is.
And the fact is, you know he’s kinda got the old school mentality, he’s working everybody all the time. He’s working all of his followers, like all the shit he says is funny. Like he talks about Trump and how much he hates him. But like he uses the same type of tactics, to pander to his fanbase, that lowbrow shit.”
On Mark Madden after the Christy Hemme incident-
“Mark Madden…I’m not gonna call him a bunch of names like a midget and stripper and shit like he called me. But I find it funny that out of all the people to champion women’s causes, it’s Mark Madden.
“Go look at that guys feed and see what he thinks about women.”
Here are highlights and an interview from Jimmy Jacobs talking on Hannibal TV. He spoke about promos and how they’re different with WWE and Impact.
