Austin Aries interviewed with Doug Mortman and Dave Lagreca of Busted Open on SiriousXM radio. Aries was pretty vocal about a number of sensitive subjects, including Hogan and Styles' situation with TNA, the controversial Christy Hemme incident, the feeling/morale backstage, and more.
Regarding the Hemme situation, Aries said that it was difficult situation and an "unfortunate event". "I'll just say I was disappointed in the way things were handled on multiple levels and I think I will leave it at that for now."
Aries said that the Hogan and Styles situation is probably more exciting to the more hardcore wrestling fans that know it's "legit" behind the scenes, but casual fans most likely don't even realize it's going on.
"The thing that we all have to be mindful with the performers that are out there, we don't want to be too smart for our audience," Aries said, "we are a lot more plugged in and tuned to those behind the scene things but the vast majority of them are not. Sometime we can outsmart ourselves with the things that we can do out there."
