Re: Drake or Aries, who is the better champion?
I see a lot of people saying how much better Aries is than Drake in the ring. And while I agree with that statement, I honestly don't believe it to be that wide of a margin.
Austin Aries in 2018 is not the same guy in 2012 having matches with guys like Roode and Jeff Hardy which were great. And I'm talking from stuff I've seen him in since leaving WWE, like Defiant Wrestling. Honestly from what I've seen of him, I haven't been that impressed given my expectations from what he used to be.
Drake on the other hand can be hit or miss. He can have some pretty good matches given the opponent but he can also be boring. Again, I would say Aries is better but in 2018, I don't believe it's by much.
I think either is fine as champion, but the manner which Aries won the title just feels like a "been there, done that" kind of thing.
