Austin Aries' arrival in NXT may have been overshadowed a little by other newcomers, but don't think for a minute that A Double is just at Full Sail to make up the numbers. Aries is a 16-year veteran of professional wrestling and still at the top of his game, with plenty to achieve and plenty to pass on to the newer generation.
As with many new signees, the conveyor belt of wrestling podcasts awaits for the self-proclaimed Greatest Man Who Ever Lived. The Ross Report, the show helmed by none other than Good Ol' JR Jim Ross, was the first to grab Aries for a good solid chat that lasted well over an hour and covered a variety of topics.
Ross and Aries don't come across as being two who had crossed paths too much in the past, but this didn't stop a mutual respect between the two seeping out of the speakers. Rather than steer the conversation in the ways he wants to go Ross leaves the entire episode up to the questions of the Twitter Universe, something which is both a positive and a negative.
It means we get to avoid Ross asking Aries for his thoughts on the Montreal Screwjob, but it also does mean a lot of basic Aries knowledge is covered. Either way, here is what we learned from Austin Aries on the Ross Report.
