What's Next For Austin Aries - 5 Possible Directions

5. Become A Journeyman

NJPW

If there's one thing Cody has proven since parting ways with Vince McMahon last year, it's that there's really no rush to tie yourself down to one company. The former Intercontinental Champion has been wrestling everywhere from Impact to WCPW over the last few months, and his wrestling stock is continuing to rise away from the glare of WWE's bright lights.

Aries could look to follow a similar path. The Milwaukee-native is in still young enough to roll with the punches of a life on the road, and practices a ring style that is easily adapted to the demands of a smaller, more wrestling-based show. Whilst financial considerations may ultimately win out, hopping around the indie circuit would be a great way to fill all that spare time.
