10 Things We Learned From Austin Aries On Talk Is Jericho

2. He Was Paid To Tweet About The 'Mania 33 DVD

WrestleMania 33

Growing up, millions of youngsters are repeatedly told that 'honesty is the best policy'. It seems Aries agrees, because he admitted to Jericho (and the world) that he was paid to tweet about the WrestleMania 33 DVD. Unintentionally, Austin stirred a hornet's nest with his wording; when posting about the release, he said the best match on the card had been left off the DVD.

Aries vs. Neville didn't make the cut, but Austin wasn't bitter at all and was instead using a little tongue-in-cheek humour. In other words, he was putting his own stamp on an otherwise dull tweet and trying to make people laugh. It failed. Fans took the comment as a sly dig aimed WWE's way and reasoned Aries was unhappy with his lot.

Jericho then quipped that the money Aries received for tweeting would make up for the paltry royalties he'd receive for being on the set anyway. That was funny, and it should be taken with the same light-hearted approach as Austin's original post.
