The Cashbox: The Top 5 Characters To Watch On TV Right Now

#4. Austin Aries

He honestly reminds me of CM Punk.

Austin Aries is one of the few that are better suited for TNA than WWE. The X Division needs work, and more focus, but it's doing right by him. There aren't enough credible challengers, but that's not his fault. He's just that good.

WWE has nothing close to a comparable division for Aries to work. And there's already two of those feel-good stories of independent wrestlers that actually make it to the top of WWE in the two world champions. And to Vince, that's probably two too many.

Aries should stay right where he's at. TNA will at least appreciate and utilize his talent. WWE wouldn't offer him the same treatment.
