  NoDQ.com > TNA > Austin Aries Comments on Almost Retiring
Posted by Steve Carrier on 09/17/2013 at 01:26 PM

Austin Aries spoke to V2 Journal about his claim he was originally going to retire from professional wrestling back in 2011.

"I had made the decision (to retire). It was just one of those situations where I didn't feel that I was getting back what I was putting in. I didn't want to be a prisoner to the world of wrestling; I didn't want to be a guy who was trying to hustle every weekend and do a convention. I didn't want to be Randy The Ram in 10, 20 years. I felt at that point of my life I was ok with transitioning into something else, and I'd stopped taking bookings and had nothing on my schedule, and before that really sunk in I got a call from TNA offering me the opportunity to come down there for an X Division qualifying match. and I figured, well why not take one more pay day, that certainly can't hurt!"

Aries also commented on his previous run with TNA Wrestling.

"Eveybody likes to speculate that me and Austin Starr are somehow related. I always say that that guy never had a tattoo. I've watched all of his footage, the guy's mildly entertaining, never really had a whole lot to sink his teeth into, but i certainly enjoyed him in the Kevin Nash Invitational Battle Royale, I'll tell you that much."
