Austin Aries Reveals Injury Status, Talks Time Off

WWE Cruiserweight star Austin Aries has responded to injury rumors and has opened up about talk some time off.

In promoting his upcoming book, Food Fight: My Plant Based Journey From The Bingo Hall to The Big Time, WWE Cruiserweight star Austin Aries has been doing the press rounds, and this has obviously led to him being asked about his current injury status. The latest news comes curtesy of Busted Open with Dave Lagreca and Larry Dallas in which they interviewed Aries about the book, and naturally the topic was brought up.

When asked point blank about how he was dealing with injuries, and wether or not he needed time off, Austin Aries addressed the rumors that he was suffering from a number of injuries, stating:

I’ve got some stuff going on, but just to be fair you could probably say that for a lot of the locker room. It’s kind of part of what we do, I don’t think anyone is ever 100%. So I got a couple things going on and obviously at this point it might be a good time to take a little break which really could consist of two days to just adjust some of those things, try and get my mind and my body right and then come back and figure out what’s gonna be next and what the direction’s gonna be.

It seems like fans can expect Aries to stay in the ring (or be flying in and around it) for the forseeable future, even though he’s currently promoting Food Fight: My Plant Based Journey From The Bingo Hall to The Big Time. With so much going on — after all, WWE’s schedule is pretty full-on — whether or not he gets another massive push in the cruiserweight division anytime soon is up for debate.

Rumors of the star being injured started at Extreme Rules, when the cruiserweight was seen wearing kinesio tape during his match against WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville, which eventually finished with Neville taking the victory. You can check out highlights of the match below.
