Austin Aries Mind-Blown By WrestleMania Weekend Experience

It been a long and often uncertain road for Austin Aries.  He made a name for himself on the Indy circuit and overseas for close to a decade. He held titles in most major promotions, but never could get signed by WWE; even not making the cut for Tough Enough.

Just when Aries was ready to retire, he joined TNA and slowly became a favorite among fans. He would leave TNA after claiming their World Championship and later debuted on NXT TV, where he was attacked by Baron Corbin. At NXT Takeover Dallas, Aries pinned Corbin in his debut.

“To sum it up in a word, it’s kind of mind-blowing and just taking it in from a perspective of seeing how big an entity WWE is and then how much work and thought it put into the presentation that they put out there,” said Aries to Fight Club Radio. “There [were] over 100,000 fans that convened in Dallas [Texas] for that week. The TakeOver show was special. We had 10,000 fans in there and rabid fans, passionate fans. And from top to bottom, that card was phenomenal.”

Corbin has since moved onto the main roster and Aries is now one of the top faces in NXT. There’s been talk of Aries getting a NXT Championship title shot in the coming months.
