10 Things We Learned From Austin Aries On Talk Is Jericho

1. His Outlook On His Own Usefulness Is Refreshing

Raw Austin Aries

The closing few moments of Austin's appearance on Talk Is Jericho are some of the most sincere and humble we've ever heard. After reaffirming his happiness over even getting to work at WrestleMania, Aries then reflected on his entire WWE run, credited the company for hiring him and left fans with an observation on his own worth.

Whilst Aries does believe he could be built to become World Champion (like he was in TNA), he doesn't view himself as the idea candidate. That's even more true in WWE, a promotion stereotypically associated with bigger men. To Austin, being used a a utility guy in WWE is far from a slight. In fact, it's a good thing.

The interview was capped off with Aries thanking WWE for letting him use the Performance Center to rehab injuries during his 90-day cooling off period post-release. Leaving the biggest promotion in the world hasn't left Aries with a sour taste in his mouth.
