Austin Aries talks returning to TNA, his diet, criticism of TNA, and more



Our buddy Scott Fishman interviewed Austin Aries for The Miami Herald. Here are a few excerpts:

– “I think when you achieve a certain level of success you kind of have a taste for it. Everything that I’ve accomplished, I want to accomplish it again and maybe do it a third time. I just want to keep doing this as long as I’m happy doing it and being successful, and hopefully that is for a long time.”

– On returning to TNA: “I think when you achieve a certain level of success you kind of have a taste for it. Everything that I’ve accomplished, I want to accomplish it again and maybe do it a third time. I just want to keep doing this as long as I’m happy doing it and being successful, and hopefully that is for a long time.”

– On his diet: “It is difficult only because there is a real naivety to not eating animal products in this country,” said Aries. “It’s not really something people think about or comprehend because people don’t think about what they eat period. People’s thought process with food is I like the way it takes, how much time is it going to cost me to get this and that’s as far as the thought process goes these days.

“So it does get a little challenging at certain establishments when you do ask a waitress or a waiter if they use any dairy in the pizza crust. This happened recently. ‘Well, I don’t think so,’ they said. I said, ‘Thinking so isn’t going to be good enough for me. I need you to find out.’ It turns out they use milk in their pizza dough, which people do not think about, with a little butter on the crust at the end. So it’s about being mindful of asking these questions.”

– “It just kind of thing that is going to be the way it is for TNA, especially with the wrestling media,” he said. “It seems they always want to scrutinize and put the negative spin on everything that comes about. I suppose they know the other company isn’t going anywhere, so they feel they can take a shot at this company. Then when, they are hoping, it all falls apart they can say, ‘Ha ha, I told you.’ That’s how it feels sometimes to me. I know what’s going on. I’m tuned in pretty well. I actually know the inner workings of what’s going on. It’s what I have really not any of the people that write about it don’t.
