Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter provided an update on former Impact Wrestling Champion Austin Aries.
Although he is no longer under contract because his deal expires, Impact is still high on him. It is looking like he is doing Brian Pillmanesque stuff mixing in work and shoot on social media and at Bound For Glory.
The social media stuff was just Aries and Johnny Impact trying to work their own angle with Aries calling Taya Valkyrie “husky.”
Impact management was not happy about it because they don’t want wrestlers working angles without the company knowing about it because it could contradict what the creative team has planned for them.
The good thing is it got Impact some buzz online and on TMZ so management was happy about that. There is no word on when Aries will be back in the company but they do have TV tapings coming up in Las Vegas.
