Austin Aries Not Attending Impact Wrestling Tapings

Last night at Bound For Glory, Johnny Impact (fka John Morrison in WWE) defeated Austin Aries for the Impact World Title in the main event. After the pin and three count, Aries no sold Starship Pain and said some words towards the direction of Don Callis. He then gave him the middle finger and went up the ramp while giving the middle finger. During the program with Impact and Aries, they have been flirting with the tone of a work or a shoot, but this feels to possibly be something more.

It is being reported that Aries went home after Bound For Glory and will not be in attendance for Impact’s television tapings. There will definitely be more to this and we will keep you up to date when more becomes available.

You can check out the no sell spot in the tweet below.


S.A.M.’s Spiel: Well it has been said for years that Aries is a difficult man to work with and that is what causes him to leave various wrestling companies. There could be a chance that this is a work, but this looks like he did not like having to drop the title and make his displeasure known. That definitely took away from Impact’s moment of capturing the title and that left a sour taste in a ppv that was pretty solid overall. We will see what comes of Aries now because it seems like he may be working his way right out of every major promotion.
