Austin Aries No-Sells Bound For Glory Finish, Flips Off Audience

The whole World title feud between Austin Aries and Johnny Impact has been constructed in a work/shoot environment, and the Bound For Glory event has only taken it further.

As we noted before, Johnny defeated the former 205 Live Star and won the Impact World title in the Bound For Glory main event using his Starship Pain finishing maneuver.

However, while Austin took a clean loss and got pinned after being hit with Starship Pain, he didn’t stay down for very long after the match.

Austin Aries No Sells Finishing Maneuver

The now-former World Champion got up seconds after the bout ended. He left the arena while jawing the Executive Vice President Don Callis and flipping fingers towards the crowd:

It’s worth mentioning here that this is not the first event which has made people wonder if this feud has gone personal. Aries previously made some offensive tweets about Johnny’s wife Taya Valkyrie and then deleted them.

Now, The latest events on the Impact PPV have only added to this confusion, leaving us questioning if Austin was really unhappy with the finish and decided to walk out on the company due to it.

Though it’s entirely possible that Impact Officials are playing it smart and working around the public image of Austin, who is considered hard to work with, to get people talking about their version of WrestleMania.

Do you think Austin Aries was legitimately unhappy with how things went down or the whole thing is a work? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
