    Austin Aries has been released from WWE

    WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Austin Aries. WWE wishes Aries the best in all of his future endeavors.
    Source: WWE.com

    Guess this is what he meant by reevaluating his career. Shame...he was one of my favorites.

    I mean they didn't use him as well as I hoped on 205 Live weekly and on the Main Roster, but I thought he could of given us way more. He was great on Commentary, and a good Wrestler to keep on the roster. When he wants to wrestle again, he can get a job with any Wrestling company in this civilized world and I'll be watching.

    Terrible news. Im happy he got his WM moment. I wonder if it had anything to do with him promoting his book.

    So there's more to this. I'm guessing now we just play the waiting game.
    I am here to stir things up. I'm here to make Friday Night SmackDown! the Monday Night RAW of Friday nights!

    I think the door for him to return is open. I mean they just signed his fiance 10 days ago. This could even be a work since he's selling it on Twitter right now.

    If he wants to go to GFW/Impact I'll be happy with him facing some of the new X-Division Wrestlers before heading back to the Main Event scene.

    There's a lot of different stuff floating around, including another round of Aries being depressed. Who knows.

    Glad he got to at least experience WWE. Seeing him on Raw, WrestleMania, etc. It was surreal and amazing to see his hard work pay off.

    What other stuff did you read?

    I had no idea he had depression issues.

    But agreed on everything in your second paragraph. I have been following Aries since 2005-2006 and he's still my favourite wrestler. He can do it all.

    Re: Austin Aries has been released from WWE

    Only thing I had read was that he was gonna take some time off.
    But yeah, sucks that he has been released- they really could have done a lot more with him tbh. He could work with the cruisers, he could work with the bigger guys.
    Been following his career for years.

    He's been on and off his entire career apparently. One of the alleged reasons he was done with ROH in 2010 and burning bridges around that time had a lot to do with where he was at, getting turned from WWE at the time, rumored to quit wrestling all together, etc.

    Yeah I do remember reading that when he was turned down from Tough Enough- I think it was the season Steve Austin did it, he thought about retirement.

    That said, I am glad he didn't wind up being on TE, would have been a waste for his talent

    Re: Austin Aries has been released from WWE

    Probably for the best because WWE seem to have categorised him as a cruiserweight and don't want him doing anything other than 205 Live stuff when he as so much more to offer them. The guy would improve things in the Raw IC title picture no doubt.

    Really happy he got to a Wrestlemania, but largely a waste of time run with WWE. Hope to see him pop up somewhere that will showcase him.

    Re: Austin Aries has been released from WWE

    Quite the surprise man. I guess it's more to do with his personal mood than what he's being booked as. Maybe he felt that he wasn't going to get enough of a chance or thought that the Neville title feud would be his peak? It's hard to tell. Might just not enjoy the direction the division is taking as well as the company. Wonder where we might see him pop up. Really hope he goes somewhere to continue furthering his career and not regress. Hope he doesn't show up in GFW.

    Totally fucked my rep comment to you as well Ed Best of the Super Junior XXV Austin Aries sounds nice, though

    Personally I was wondering what his relationship with Rocky Romero was like...

    My first thought when I saw the thread was "Please go to New Japan", my second thought was "Please don't go to GFW". Totally selfish reasons because I watch one and not the other, but also because one's good and the other is flaming bag of dog shit.

    In the end though, whatever makes the guy happy. I remember hearing about how hard not getting on Tough Enough hit him and how close he came to just calling it a day. Given some of the different decisions he's made over the years and things he's done (funnily enough I was listening to one of Cornette's podcasts recently, and somehow he got onto Aries and ROH parting ways and how it wasn't the most amicable of situations; it sounded very much like Cornette respected Austin's work but wasn't a fan of how he conducted his business with him - which is fair if they had heat) I wouldn't be surprised to hear he's bi-polar, he reacts very much like the people I know that suffer from it and I can imagine that if he's not feeling fulfilled in what he's doing it eats at him and he could get a little irritated, which might cause issues if he starts butting heads with the wrong people/person.

    He's closing in on forty so he might be genuinely looking retirement in the eye now. He can still go in the ring, obviously, but we don't know how he's actually feeling or if he's even enjoying himself anymore. If that's what he ends up doing then it's a shame but he's done so much in his career and he deserves to pick his own out date.

    Forbes have an article up asking if this is the start of an "overhaul of failing cruiserweights" which is a bit of a dick way to put it I think. Aries is/was one of the more successful cruisers of the division, if WWE culls everyone less successful than him then they'll be left with Neville and no one for him to defend that little plastic belt of his against.

    I can feel your reasoning for not wanting Aries in GFW, but they signed guys like Low Ki, and Sonjay Dutt and they've treated them like stars since arriving if he wanted go there he'll be welcomed there with open arms. I would say though if he went there, he warrants more money than those two if they call him up.

    Man this sucks hard. Such a huge shame but at the same time the dude was pretty under-utilised. Like Ed said he would have been the perfect guy for IC title contention but it seems as if the company couldn't get past his size and so he was pretty much stuck as a cruiser weight

    Re: Austin Aries has been released from WWE

    Bit of a shocker to read this. Maybe he is a bit disillusioned at being ringposted for 205 rather than anything else, and at his age you can understand why. I do get the feeling there's more to this release than meets the eye, but time will tell on that one.
    I have a plan so cunning......
