During a interview with The Sporting News, Austin Aries went over a variety of topics regarding his new book; Food Fight: My Plant-Powered Journey From The Bingo Halls To The Big Time. Stepping off topic for a second, Aries spoke on what it was like being the first match on the WrestleMania 33 match card.
Aries: “Getting to be the first superstar to walk out there that night in front of an amped-up crowd was a really special moment. I definitely was fueled up with a couple of bananas. I had an extra banana or two before I went out there to make sure my potassium and energy levels were at their peak, it was really special.”
