While appearing on X-Pac’s 1-2-360 podcast, Austin Aries revealed that Impact Wrestling contacted him after WWE released him from his contract.

“We had some talks but really for me, the only position I was interested in there was the position of being a decision maker,” said Aries. “I told Dixie when I left there I wouldn’t come back and work for anybody. But If I was going to come back there, that I had to be in a position to make a difference.”

Aries continues, “I know they just went through a big regime change, I know we had some discussion about me coming in there and possibly being part of the team, but I know where I am right now in my career and all the possibilities and things I have in front of me, I really couldn’t invest myself emotionally into that because let’s be honest they’ve got a lot of work to do there. They’ve done a lot of bad business over the years and they’ve got a lot to overcome. And I think the guys there know that and I wish them luck.”
