Austin Aries recently spoke about rumored TNA issues and more. Here are the highlights…

On the rumored TNA issues: "A lot of reports about problems with the company are from journalists who are trying to get clicks on their website," Aries said. "It seems like there's a certain core of pundits who like to take any news with TNA and make it negative. The fact is, the things going on in TNA, whether you're talking about talents that are coming and going, that's all part of a growing business. I think there's almost a certain group of people who root for the company to go out of business just so they can say, 'I told you so.' Unfortunately for those people, I think TNA is going to be here for a long time to come."

On fans giving TNA a chance: "We're trying to bring pro wrestling back," he said. "We're putting an emphasis on what happens in the ring while also having compelling characters and stories. Bound for Glory is our biggest show of the year. That's where we're going to pull out all the stops. If you haven't given Impact Wrestling a try, I think as a wrestling fan it's an absolute must. Give us a shot and you'll see we have the most talented performers in the whole world."
