Being at the A Double Level is exhausting. This past Sunday at “Extreme Rules 2017”, Neville successfully defended his Cruiserweight Title against Austin Aries for the third time in a row. Aries gave it his all but eventually fell victim to the Rings of Saturn and lost their submission match. That seemed to be it for Aries, at least for the time being.
“I’ve got some stuff going on, but just to be fair you could probably say that for a lot of the locker room. It’s kind of part of what we do, I don’t think anyone is ever 100%,” Aries said. “So I got a couple things going on and obviously at this point it might be a good time to take a little break which really could consist of two days to just adjust some of those things, try and get my mind and my body right and then come back and figure out what’s gonna be next and what the direction’s gonna be.”
Opinion: This isn’t the worst news in the world and the timing couldn’t be much better. After losing to Neville again, it was time for Aries to take a breather and reset things a bit. He’ll be fine upon returning and can move on to something else, perhaps on the main roster instead of being stuck down with the cruiserweights.
