Austin Aries coming soon to MLW

Austin Aries’ Instagram

Last we saw Austin Aries in an upper-level promotion, he was creating controversy by no-selling his championship loss to Johnny Impact and flipping off the fans at the end of Impact’s Bound for Glory in October 2018. Aries is about to get back in the game with another televised wrestling company.

On the latest episode of MLW Fusion, this graphic rolled across the screen.


Aries would later chime in on Twitter.

Aries wrestled for MLW previously in early 2018, but he only made a handful of appearances.

Aries’ return to MLW sounds good to me. I’m a big fan of Aries’ heelish comedic stylings, especially during his time as partners with Bobby Roode in TNA. His work in the ring is enjoyable as well. Double win for A double.

However, I’m not sure what to make of this Popeye gimmick he’s been working on.

At least spinach would work well with Aries’ vegan lifestyle.

Does Austin Aries move the needle for you? Will his presence make you more inclined to check out MLW? Who would you like to see Aries feud with? Veterans like Teddy Hart, Low Ki, LA Park? Up-and-comers like Brian Pillman Jr., MJF, Jacob Fatu, Marshall Von Erich and Ross Von Erich? Or the wild men like Mance Warner, Sami Callihan, Jimmy Havoc, Tom Lawlor?

MLW Fusion airs on beIN SPORTS Saturday nights at 9 pm ET / 6 pm PT. New episodes are posted on YouTube Mondays at 7 pm ET. Fusion is also broadcast in the UK, Ireland, and Israel.
