– Austin Aries recently spoke with Newsday about achieving his level of success despite his size.
“I think at the end of the day this is the entertainment business,” said Aries. “There is definitely an athletic, physical nature to it, but it’s about entertainment. In the history of wrestling you’ve had people of all shapes and sizes… The major companies are seeing that talent is talent, and whatever talent you want to utilize that can make money you’ll use, regardless.
“You see it now along the lines of guys like the Daniel Bryans, the CM Punks. You had it with guys like Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Sean Waltman, HBK, going back to Jerry Lynn, who I always loved watching. There’s a long list of guys who didn’t meet the hulking 6-foot-4, 270-pound idea of what a wrestler is.”
– Chavo Guerrero commented on his recent signing with TNA on his Twitter account.
“Well, the news is out..Chavo is TNA bound!! Looking forward to facing off with some of the best talent in the biz! Thank u @TNADixie… Going to TNA to represent La Raza!! Watch out RVD, there’s another Frogsplash in town!!
“Thanks for all the support Ive been getting about signing with TNA!&for the haters, please watch&let me change your mind. Guerrero=wrestling … Wow!!! Huge support on my TNA signing! Thank u!! I promise I won’t let u down! Viva La Raza! Viva Guerrero!!”
