Aries: “I’m loyal to the company that I work for”

Oct 17, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck posted an interview with Austin Aries. Here are a few excerpts:

– On the Dixie Carter heel storyline: “I think it has the potential to be a very good thing, as long as Dixie understands the position that she’s putting herself in and is willing to take the heat that’s going to come with that — opening herself up to criticism, both storyline-wise and behind the scenes, as well,” Aries said. “If anything, it has the potential to shake things up a little bit and open up a new direction and some new interactions between characters that we haven’t seen before. I’m not going to lie. I’d love to have the mic in my hand opposite of Dixie Carter in the ring and say my piece, say what’s on my mind. And if she’s willing to sit there and listen to it. I think it could make for some great television.”

– On TNA’s major financial trouble: “Obviously, I’m going to be more privy to the ins and the outs of what’s going on than a lot of people who are reporting on it, than the fans who are talking about it, than the dirt sheet writers who opinionate about it,” Aries said. “I’m loyal to the company that I work for. I want it to be a success. And whatever issues it might have, that’s something that we always keep internal. On the outside, it’s important that I always promote the company and help people understand the difference between rumors and facts . . . You write it as doom and gloom, ‘They’re going to fail,’ or you can try to look at it from the other side — that the company is trying to find the right combination for success and trying to take steps forward.”
