Ring of Honor sent this in.


One of the most explosive, charismatic, intense stars to ever enter the ROH arena, Austin Aries immediately made an impression on the fans and left them clamoring for more. The man once referred to as “The Wrestling Machine” awed the ROH faithful with his combination of technical precision, high flying abilities, and a deadly combination of maneuvers that launched him into the Ring of Honor history books when he faced down Samoa Joe at “Final Battle 2004”.

This is a look at how Aries rose up the ranks in ROH, made history one cold December night in 2004, and went on to establish himself as one of the world’s preeminent grapplers through his matches against the likes of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Homicide, and James Gibson amongst many others. Whether it be alongside his Generation Next cohorts, reigning as a World Tag Team Champion with Roderick Strong, or standing alone as the ROH World Champion, Austin Aries always brought the fight to his competition.
