Impact Wrestling’s Austin Aries Says He Doesn’t Watch Much Pro Wrestling Anymore

Impact Wrestling World Champion Austin Aries says that he doesn’t watch much professional wrestling anymore, while also discussing the differences between WWE and Impact Wrestling, during an interview with Konnan on his ‘Keeping It Real’ podcast.

“I really don’t watch a lot of wrestling. I really don’t. People are surprised that I don’t. There was a time that I really loved pro wrestling, but I’m not a pro wrestling junkie, per se,” Aries said (H/T Wrestling Inc).

“I don’t have a lot of free time with the amount of traveling that I do, but most of pro wrestling isn’t catered to me. I am not a kid.

“There are a lot of guys that complain to me about the product, but it’s like, well, you are not a kid. It is catered to sell t-shirts and merchandise to kids and their parents.

“That is why with some of the things that we are doing at Impact Wrestling and other places there are more of a resurgence to more of an adult-orientated version of pro wrestling because that is what is missing for a long time,” he continued.

“Maybe, there is something we can do at Impact Wrestling that some corporate companies don’t want to touch. I think that there is a lot of people that miss what pro wrestling can give them too.

“I don’t watch a ton of it, I watch enough to see what is going on, I think it is also good to not be watching it because your ideas are your ideas.”

Killer Kross Discusses Request for Release from Impact Wrestling

Killer Kross

Killer Kross made headlines recently when he requested his release from Impact Wrestling, and now Kross has discussed the decision to ask for his departure from the company in a brand new interview with the ‘Wrestling Perspective’ podcast.

“I personally really don’t really need much,” Kross said (h/t Pro Wrestling Sheet). “But it’s just different when you have people to take care of, circumstances change in life. You can’t anticipate it. […] Being told to go get another job by your job, that’s f****d up. You’re struggling to make ends meet taking care of people, and the job that you can barely afford to have tells you to go get another job so you can keep that job. It’s like working at a corporation being told to go work at McDonald’s. It’s a weird feeling.”

“[…] I found out how much people are being paid, and I wanted to be paid on the same scale as that,” Kross continued.

“I wasn’t asking for anything that was honestly unreasonable. In all sincerity. And I’m not gonna bullsh*t you guys. I really wasn’t. That’s ok if the company does not agree that I am worth that. I will not take offense to that. That’s ok. It’s not my company. I’m just an employee. And I’m not saying that because I think I’m supposed to say that. But if they really feel that way after one year, if they feel that I’m not worth what I’m asking…professionally, kindfully, please…let me go somewhere else, and I will prove it to everyone that I can draw what I’m asking for.”
