Austin Aries spoke with Adam Carriker and Chuck Carroll about the the ramifications if AJ Styles jumped ship to World Wrestling Entertainment.

“That’s news to me. I wasn’t aware. I don’t know if there would be a huge impact. I think one thing that both companies and every successful company has is you need to have depth. And football teams are the same way. If a guy goes down, a guy’s gotta step up, and if AJ Styles will leave, really the only place that he’s been, his career, where he’s made his name, I think there will be guys that will step up and fill that void.

That being said, anytime you lose a guy as talented as AJ, who has a passion and a dedication for what he does, it’s always gonna weaken you a little bit. But I’m pretty confident that at some point everybody’s replaceable. We’ve seen it time and time again in wrestling. We’ve seen some of the biggest names jump other places and… hopefully that’s all hypothetical, hopefully they could channel it out and AJ continues his amazing career at a place that he helped build and that is TNA Impact Wrestling. I know everybody would like to see him stay and compete and have a successful career there, but at the end of the day, he’s gotta do what’s best for him and his family, and support him in that decision.”

    Whose is jump in ship?

  • John Sporowski

    I thought AJ Styles and Austin Aries were butt buddies. TNA should focus on real talent like Bobbie E.

      You mean Robbie e? Lmao you can’t even spell his name right and he’s just a jersey shore santino of TNA. Austin Aries and aj styles are top rated performers
