Austin Aries on his dream opponent, and favorite guy to work with
Austin Aries did an interview with DirecTV ahead of Sunday’s Bound for Glory PPV. Here are a few excerpts:
Q. Who is your all-time dream opponent?
Aries: I could give you 6 different answers, and none would be wrong. The first answer that comes to mind is Hulk Hogan in his prime because it means you are in the main event and making a lot of money. Same goes for Steve Austin and The Rock. It means you are at the top of the industry. Of course, Macho Man or Ric Flair would be amazing. I got in the ring with Sting recently which was a great honor and very special. No matter who I am wrestling, as long as Bobby Heenan is my manager, I’ll be happy.
Q. Who is your favorite guy to work with in the ring?
Aries: I always mention Bobby Roode. We just click on a lot of different levels. We grew up appreciating the same type of wrestler and same type of wrestling. We are similar students to the game. We work together against each other or as a tag partner. Guys like Samoa Joe, no matter what it’s been, what promotion, every time we are in the ring there is such an easy storytelling and psychology in there. We always had good matchups. Matches with Brian Danielson (Daniel Bryan of WWE) have always brought the best out of me. We’ve had a number of clashes over the years. Those are some guys off the top of my head.
