I get where OP is coming from, but people have grown up. People respect smaller guys now as spectacular speed demons who will run rings around his opponents in the ring. Having Aries is a breath of fresh air as everyone looks ordinary at Jeff Jarrett size

OP isn't totally wrong. If Austin had the height (anything 6'1"+), he would check all the boxes a promoter would ever want in their wrestler. Look, charisma, mic skills, athleticism, ring skills, marketability AND height, I could imagine him doing great in WWE under that condition. But the number of wrestlers who have it all is extremely slim, so he's good to go. TNA doesn't really care about size anyway, the average TNA wrestler is smaller than the average WWE wrestler, they probably have more wrestlers under 6ft than above. Take away Joseph Parks and Rob Terry and Matt Morgan towers over every wrestlers by a whole head.

I can kind of see the OP's point.

Don't get me wrong - I'm an Aries mark and I already think that Aries is the man.

But I don't think anyone can deny that Aries, despite his skill, despite his muscle, despite his work ethic, despite his mic skills and everything else, has had to work a Helluva lot harder to make it as a 5 ft 8 wrestler than he would have done if everything else was equal but he was 6 ft 5. Remember, he was on the verge of retiring before heading to TNA and he's been turned down by the WWE (Tough Enough, was it?).

I mean, Austin Aries! A guy of his calibre being in that position?! Ridiculous.

And don't tell me no promoter never said, "Damn, if only that guy was taller," because we all know that's not the case.

Thankfully we live in different times now. Then again, maybe that just made Aries work harder - apart from his wrestling skill the guy obviously hits the gym hard. Maybe if he was a foot taller he wouldn't have been as driven and so wouldn't be one of the best, as he is today....

The OP said Aries was incredibly talented, so I'm not sure what your beef is, exactly.

I agree with him. Aries has everything except the look (size). Personally, even being so small, I think he's good enough to be a main eventer, but there's no question his size will always be a huge blemish on his career. I mean, if he was 6'2", he'd be the top star in the business (he's both more charismatic and a better talker than Punk) and a perennial Wrestlemania main eventer.

6'5 muscle freaks are pretty boring and should be on the field not in a wrestling ring. if Aries was 6'2 he'd be Cena. athletes like Aries, AJ, Daniels and the rest of the X guys is what makes TNA...TNA. Why is it that wrestling fans bitch the most about height, weight etc. In every other sport smaller guys have proven to be just as good if not better than your 50 foot giants.

This, anything that Jeff Hardy could do, Austin Aries could do better in the real world. Aries would out fight, out wrestle, get more pussy, out draw, out everything that Jeff could EVER DREAM to do.

But Jeff Hardy sells more merchandise because the little kiddies like him.

If anything I would say people like smaller guys more now then big guys.mstt morgan looks silly being so tall.the wrestling is not as good either woth giants.I forget which guy it was.seeing aries brain buster guys 3 times his size is exciting.

Ps get ready for Aries ti have the loudest pop in the uk
