— Brandon Baxter recently interviewed Austin Aries prior to Impact Wrestling coming to Jonesboro, Arkansas on March 28th. Here are highlights and the video…

On Growing Up a Wrestling Fan: “I grew up a lifelong wrestling fan. I never really thought about doing it. Honestly, as a young kid I never would have thought about how to do that…I was in college and kind of deciding that wasn’t the direction I wanted to be going when a very good childhood friend of mine called me up and told me he was training to be a wrestler…I drove there and checked it out and moved onto his couch two weeks later and never looked back.”

On Influences: “I have a collection of things I like. I grew up watching a lot of Crocket and NWA so I think the Horsemen were people who were pretty influential on me as a kid. And I think someone like Bobby Heenan was such a big personality, so smart with his humor and witty in his timing and that’s something I was drawn too.”
