Source: NewsDay.com- Josh Stewart of NewsDay recently interviewed TNA Heavyweight Champion Austin Aries, who was promoting Saturday's TNA Basebrawl event in Brooklyn, NY. During the interview, Aries spoke about achieving his level of success despite his size.
"I think at the end of the day this is the entertainment business," said Aries. "There is definitely an athletic, physical nature to it, but it's about entertainment. In the history of wrestling you've had people of all shapes and sizes... The major companies are seeing that talent is talent, and whatever talent you want to utilize that can make money you'll use, regardless.
"You see it now along the lines of guys like the Daniel Bryans, the CM Punks. You had it with guys like Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Sean Waltman, HBK, going back to Jerry Lynn, who I always loved watching. There's a long list of guys who didn't meet the hulking 6-foot-4, 270-pound idea of what a wrestler is."
- TNA has released this promo for Bound For Glory heading to Phoenix. Tickets for the event go on sale next Friday, July 27th:
