Moments ago the WWE announced that they had come to terms with releasing Austin Aries. Aries WWE Career last about a year and a half. In that time he was featured extensively in NXT as a major challenger to Nakamura. Aries was nearly blinded by Nakamura while in NXT. When Aries was promoted to the Crusierweight Division, many thought it would be his division for the taking. Aries received an opportunity at Wrestlemania to wrestler for the Cruiserweight Title, but came up short. As recent as last Saturday Aries was in Japan with the WWE challenging for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in matches with Neville and Tozawa. On most house shows, Aries challenging Neville seemed to be the program. Aries brought a breath of fresh air to 205 Live on the WWE Network. Prior to joining the WWE, Aries was a former IMPACT World Champion, X-Division Champion, IMPACT Tag Champion, ROH World Champion and ROH Tag Champion. At 39 years of age, Aries still has a the potential to have high caliber matches, with just about anyone really. It'll be interesting to see where Aries goes next.
Wishing you the best, on your future endeavors.
