More Details on the Release of Austin Aries
Sunday, July 16, 2017
Several different people in WWE have noted that Austin Aries was not exactly well liked by the writers or even some of the talent that he worked with in the Cruiserweight division. He was a very difficult person to get along with and he really had no one that he was close to backstage or a buddy in the locker room.
He had a reputation of not being happy unless he was used well and he was given a push. Of course, from where things stood, that wasn't happening. Some of the other talent who he worked with and who were part of the Cruiserweight Division were just happy to have a job and get some exposure. Aries had a lot of confidence that his ability and skills deserved a much more bigger role than he was given.
