Austin AriesThe Stories

- Bobby Roode and Austin Aries come out to talk about not being invited to the big wedding. They complain about how they are treated in the company, and both men try to one up the other by still being a great heel. Roode is the cocky and ignorant heel, while Aries reminds me of a pompous jerk similar to how Jericho was in the WWE. Nonetheless, both men talk about themselves and their chemistry was just excellent to watch. I love seeing how they are like big brother and little brother. You can tell they are so comfortable with one another, and they are able to keep the conversation going in a smooth and believable pace. After they are done talking, Chavo and Hernandez come out and talk trash on both men, which prompts them to escape from the ring.

I am not sure if I love this pairing, but it gives more credibility to Hernandez and Chavo. Who will Jeff Hardy face after he is done with Daniels? Is there a guy better than Roode or Aries? I think it COULD be a great idea to have Roode and Aries face off in tag team action, as they seem to be TNA's answer to Team Hell No. We shall see, but their personalities and charisma can carry them a long way.
