He's a good wrestler, but their world champion on debut? That was dumb booking.

He comes back after years away, walks straight into a title match, wins it and doesn't turn up the week after.

Not against him having a title run, just have their creative heard of the phrase slow burner? Probably not.

So at Bound for Glory he apparently no-sold the finish then flipped off the crowd and Don Callis. Nobody seems to know if this is a work or real as it’s said his contract was up.

People seem to be pretty pissed off about this, but since they still have no idea whether or not it was a work, it seems like they need to chill out some.

Quote On the most recent edition of the Wrestling Perspective podcast, hosts Dennis Farrell and Petey Williams discussed the Austin Aries situation at the conclusion of Sunday's Impact Bound for Glory PPV. For those who don't know, Williams is a wrestler with Impact as well as a booker, agent and producer with the company so his insight is as good as anyone's.

-- Williams stated that at the production meeting during the day, he was the assigned agent for the Austin Aries vs. Johnny Impact match and was responsible for calling things from the truck but because both wrestlers are professionals, he only really needed to get the basics from each wrestler, rather than have to plan everything out move-by-move.

-- Williams indicated that before the match, Aries did not seem disgruntled at the planned finish or having to drop the Impact title and commented that Aries' "demeanor was fine."

-- Petey then revealed that at the conclusion of the PPV, Aries' contract with Impact is done and the match was his last match under contract with Impact.

-- They talked about the post-match incident where Aries no-sold the finisher and reportedly gave Don Callis the finger befre angrily walking to the back. Petey said despite those actions, he wasn't upset as the match itself was tremendous.

-- After the match, Petey spoke to both Aries and Johnny and Aries said it was the last day of his contract with Impact and that he wouldn't be attending the TV tapings that took place on Monday evening. When asked if Aries' actions were disrespectful, Petey declined to answer that and said he's not with the company anymore and everyone is going to move forward from here.

The angry vegan needs to go get some dairy and meat down him.
 
Yet another bridge burned by the guy who thinks he's entitled to much more than he actually is.
 
If I had a indy promotion I wouldn't be wanting to book his name value after being so direspectful to the business that you'd no sell.

It's an interesting situation. I was listening to Bully Ray talk about this on Busted Open radio and he made several good points. If this was a pure shoot, Aries has shot himself in the foot big time. It is highly doubtful WWE  would bring him back. According to Bully Ray, he isn't on the best of terms with ROH, and depending on if this was a shoot or not, he may have burned a bridge with Impact. Bully also made the point that this could be a work and if it is, it is working since it has people talking. Either way, it made for a controversial and interesting finish to Impact's biggest show of the year. I just hope that it was a worked shoot, Aries is too talented in the ring to not be on television and I would hate to see him ruin himself like that.
