Roger Federer won Wimbledon. The Yankees beat the Red Sox. Those were sweet happenings, but not as sweet as Austin Aries winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship! I’m so thrilled, happy, and proud of Aries for reaching to top of TNA. He has been the best part of the company — both in the ring and on the mic — for a long stretch. It’s fantastic to see his hard work and incredible talent rewarded. He totally deserves it. Now please join me in giving it up to A-Double, the vascular vegetarian, and quite possibly the greatest man that ever lived — Austin Aries!!!

Mr. Padilla, a world champion is not defined by hard work in ring and on the mic. A world champion is defined by can you sell tickets, can you sell merchandise, can you boost ratings, can you carry the company? Some people hate Cena but he is the only one that answer yes to all those questions in the WWE. There is a reason why the so called WWE champion never headlines PPVs. There is a reason why guys like The Rock and Brock Lesnar can just show up out of the blue and headline PPVs when they want. It pains me to see the top strap be passed around like an STD these days. Two of the WWE's most pathetic bottom dwellers at the moment are former world champions, Jack Swagger and the Miz. This time next year CM Punk and Daniel Bryan will be bottom dwelling jobbers as well. End rant.
Congrats to Austin, though. I just don't want to see the strap on the 53 year old Sting anymore.
A-Double defies all conventional definitions. That's why he's possibly the greatest man that ever lived.
I like the nickname arrangement. There is only one AA (Double A)
Guys like Aries are the kind of wrestlers I actually enjoy watching. Unfortunately, those are the guys who don't traditionally carry a company for long, because they're not "something" enough (fill in your own reason) for the powers that be. Good luck to him.
Yeah, my fear is that he's going to be a transitional champion. My other fear is that TNA is also doing a "me too", copying the success of other Ring of Honor alumni like CM Punk and Bryan Danielson.
TNA is more or less a "me too" wrestling company. Sad to say, but unfortunately true.
