What you loved:

  1. Brainbuster - Bunch of mentions specifically for this move, here, you can see why.
  2. Mic - Great with promos, has solid interactions with other wrestlers, and can get the crowd hot.
  3. Moveset - Aside from the brainbuster, Aries has an entertaining move-set that's not for the faint of heart.
  4. Tag Team - His time with Bobby Roode was a favorite of some of you. Cagesider, TJ_UK compared it to Team Hell No as two guys who were a team, but did not like each other.
  5. Option C - I'll be honest, I don't watch TNA much, so someone can explain this in the comments.

My favorite comment comes from TJ_UK:

"The Dirty Heels team. Damn, him and Roode were entertaining together. They were TNA’s answer to Team Hell No (well early Team Hell No). Two guys who you believed legitimately hated each other at times but were going to win the belts together. The classic line about how they are going to win all the titles and the bickering about who gets the World Title and who gets the Knockouts belt was great."


What you loathed:

  1. Jerk - Some of you used more colorful language, but it seems like he's not the nicest person in real life. It's tough to say since none of us actually know him, but he just gives off a mean vibe.
  2. Christy Hemme Incident - He said it was nothing, but Christy's reaction says otherwise. Cornering and putting his crotch in her face is thumbs down all the way.
  3. TNA - It's not so much that Aries has had a bad run in TNA, it's just he's in TNA. How would he fair in the WWE though, thoughts?

My favorite comment comes via Boxingnut4324:

"How the hell does he shave that beard every day?"
