Austin Aries’ Tweets Turned Into Angle, Against All Odds Buys, More



– Austin Aries’ message on Twitter last week dismissing Sting has been turned into an angle. The X Division Champion wrote following Thursday’s Impact Wrestling, “I guess ‘I’m done’ is code for ‘I’m booking myself in another PPV main event.’ Yet the X Division champ can’t sniff a main event… #Shocker.” He then pulled the message and wrote, “Apparently this straw over-stirred the drink.”

TNA staff said Monday they “reached out to Aries” for comment, but he responded “No comment.” Sting wrote Monday, “Tension building. Goal accomplished. #whining ≠ #winning.”

– Early trending patterns for Against All Odds indicate the pay-per-view event drew 7,000 buys. The main event featured Bobby Roode defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Bully Ray, James Storm and Jeff Hardy in a Four Way match with Sting as Special Guest Ringside Enforcer.

– The Impact Wrestling live event on February 17 in Huntington, West Virginia drew 1,100 fans while the February 18 show in Beckley, West Virginia drew 2,100.

– The March 8, 2012 episode of Impact Wrestling is being taped tonight in Orlando, Florida.
