Austin Aries on his NXT debut, Baron Corbin, journey to WWE

Jonny Loquasto passed this along.

Jonny Loquasto here from Wrestling Compadres. Our interview with Austin Aries dropped today and it’s incredible, so I wanted to send it along. He discusses everything from his long journey to the WWE, when he thought about stepping away from wrestling a few years back, and his thoughts on Baron Corbin attacking him.

On his debut:

“Before I went out, Bayley was backstage and I joked with her “If I walk out there and it’s crickets and nobody knows me, just come out and give me a hug.”

On Baron Corbin:

“For a former NFL lineman, the guy moves pretty fast. He got me good. But he’s going to realize that he cut his own nose off to spite his face.”

On his journey:

“You can’t measure passion. Everything I’ve ever achieved in the business has been because of passion.”
