Austin Aries is thirsty for titles!
At the Ring of Honor 16th Anniversary show, the Greatest Man Who Ever Lived showed up after Kenny King successfully defended his television championship against Silas Young. Adorned with a bunch of titles, including the Impact world heavyweight championship, he told King that the TV title is one he’s never held.
And he wants it.
Aries has some history with Kenny King in Ring of Honor having managed him in the past.
This is another example of how fluid professional wrestling is currently and will have fans wondering what this means for partnerships in the future. Austin Aries is the Impact world champion and is at Ring of Honor to challenge for a different title there. And ROH works with New Japan Pro Wrestling (Hiromu Takahashi had a match on this show). Also, let’s not forget that Impact executive vice president Don Callas is an announcer in NJPW.
Could we be seeing even more talent sharing in the future? Either way, it looks like the days of cease and desists from Impact to ROH may be in the past.
