Unfortunately Aries should be a jobber or go back to dominating the X-division.

These two things. If I lived in Florida, A-Double would be mine right now, but, honestly, I thought I was the only one who thought he looks like a carny (but, in my case, affectionately so). And carnies aren't usually my thing. He looks like a barker or a ringmaster, but like a barker, he brings me to the show every time.

That said, I realized that a big reason why I like him is because of his height, aside from his obvious skill and ability to entertain. That little cape, though, makes me think of a boy playing a superhero; I think that every time I see him wear it. But I love it all. The guy's awesome, and he wouldn't be the same guy if he was taller.

Thank goodness he's not.

I think you nailed it.

"That little cape, though, makes me think of a boy playing a superhero"

I kinda see it now, When i see him he seems normal but has this super human powers.I think we all feel like we relate to him.Thats why people like Batman spiderman do well,They are normal people with secret strenth. We all feel like the little boy with a cape.

I like the way you put that, and I can see kids looking at it in that way too. His bravado, which I think he uses to offset his size, is what gets me the most. A great wrestler, despite their skill, can still lack the spark that gets many people's attention. He's "short" but he goes out there - in a cape, no less - and acts like, as Taz put it, he's "6'9", 400 pounds." I can't stand the word "swagger" or its derivatives but I have to say that Austin Aries' swagger is out of this world, and, most importantly, he has the skills to back it up. He continually impresses me in both regards and that's what makes him champion material: confidence and skill. Also, when he has his shades on, he kinda reminds me of GTA: IV's Niko Bellic.

I can't really buy what people are trying to sell about being small not = a (believable) champion. Whenever I watch MMA or women's MMA I see "small" fighters tearing up bigger ones all the time, and that's "real."

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

I dont know why he never does that arm swing elbow into the person move.When he reaches to one side and then reaches to the other.Getting a reaction from the crowd.Regardless if its a face move.He still works the crowd as a heel.He should do it again.Such a good crowd move.

Not explaining it well.Hopefully someone knows what im talking about

45 seconds in.He does this swinging elbow drop.Normaly switches back and forth working the crowd first. Never seems to do it anymore.

I know what you mean, the pendulum elbow? He doesn't work up the crowd first, but he still does the move. They have him more clearly a heel now so I guess we won't see that part, unless he does it mockingly.

And I agree that the cape could be longer. I wonder about a robe instead but I don't know if he'd look diminutive in it.

I hate to bump this topic, but I just watched this and he was speaking from the perspective of what people are saying, what people like the OP think. He was not saying that's what he thought himself. Basically, "If I was 6 feet, I would be ranked higher in (certain) people's eyes." Alright, I'm done with this.
