He’s Done Sh*t Like That Before..
– Seen below, on the latest episode of X-Pac 12360, Sean Waltman discusses a variety of wrestling topics, including Austin Aries’ controversial exit from Impact and more.
On NJPW talent leaving for WWE:
“You kinda had to see some of this stuff coming as far as, the business, the industry is heating up. You have All In, you have the New Japan expansion here in the United States. The big buzz with wrestling and truthfully there is a little bit of brand confusion. With ROH, New Japan, and Impact. Even NWA and a lot of the talent can be seen on a lot of these different shows… So eventually when the money starts… higher stakes are involved here. I can see how companies are going to get,’ Hey, you can’t go do this because you’re with us and all that.’ And I understand that. However, you have to have somebody that deals with the talent that knows how to deal with the talent properly. Let moral go down in your company and see how quickly all that forward momentum you have going on comes to a halt. Trust me.”
On Austin Aries’ controversial exit from Impact Wrestling:
“I’m just going to say that you just never know. When it comes to Aries that’s just something that he would do… He’s done shit like that before you know so to sit and go “okay this was a work, this wasn’t” how about we just enjoy it? How about that… He sold the move, he took the pin, and then he got up. It wasn’t really a no-sell, he just quit selling it.”
