Report: Austin Aries Not Working This Week’s Impact Tapings

Former Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Austin Aries will not be working Monday and Tuesday’s Impact tapings from Queens, New York.

Aries was involved in a controversial scene at the conclusion of Sunday night’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view at the Melrose Ballroom. After losing the belt to Johnny Impact in the main event, Aries immediately stood up and effectively no-sold Johnny’s finishing move. Aries flipped off the crowd as he exited the arena. Fans were left to wonder if this incident was scripted or a shoot.

On Monday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez speculated that aspects of this feud have gone off-script, but the majority of what’s transpired has been part of the storyline. We’ll keep you posted as this situation continues to unfold, but the biggest takeaway here is that Austin Aries won’t be on television for the next several weeks. Based on how much television Impact tapes tonight and Tuesday, he could be off TV through December.

Check back later tonight for Impact Wrestling tapings results.
