Re: If Austin Aries was taller he would look like the next big thing!

Of course it matters. Wrestling is like a comic, a superhero movie. If you pick a 5'6" skinny dude to play superman, or batman, it just doesn't work. Just like in acting, you can be a tremendous actor, but you can't really pull off a superhero unless you are tall and muscular, and actually look like a superhero. So yes, if Austin Aries was taller, he wouldn't be just another "great wrestler."

Re: If Austin Aries was taller he would look like the next big thing!

Also, even though he is short, I bet Austin Aries could beat 90% of the locker room in wrestling. His arms are like 3 times the muscle of SuperNero, and he can move faster. Call me biased, but if they fought, my money would be on Aries.

th sad truith that al of u cant ceem to grrasp is dat wrestlig is getig les poplar each day and no bodde caires abot it

vinse is senile at this poiint and th growth of tna has pleateuaed nd roh has nevr bin mor than his a crapy cult

Re: If Austin Aries was taller he would look like the next big thing!

Being able to beat somebody in real life doesn't mean shit. Bruce Lee was 5'7" and if he's alive, he can beat up any pro wrestler with ease. Does that mean he should be World Heavyweight Champion in wrestling?

Re: If Austin Aries was taller he would look like the next big thing!

How does Aries look bad next to Jeff Hardy? Yeah, he's shorter, but he's easily bigger than skinny-ass Jeff.


^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Yeah let's put the guy who had the best matches and rose in the ranks back in the X-division and let's start another Matt Morgan/Crimson push. Because everyone remembers how EPIC face Morgan and the undefeated streak were
