Ace Austin

Full NameAustin James Highley

BornFebruary 28, 1997

Height1.73 m



A really promising talent in the wrestling world, he has been making strides with his development. From being just a jobber at CZW and occasionally working at Dojo Wars, he has made his way to Impact Wrestling and 205 Live. An exciting high flyer who can 'go' when the fight hits the mat and gets technical, Austin mixes gimmicks spots into his matches well. He can hold his own when it comes to being technical as well and unlike a lot of modern indy wrestlers, he doesn't always rely on big spots. He sells almost every move as well which can be hard to find in a wrestler nowadays.

  1. Championships and Accomplishment

A new entrant to Impact Wrestling, Ace Austin has steadily climbed the 205-pound and under middleweight division in 2019 with impressive wins over veteran Rich Swann and most recently DJZ. Despite his loss against Teddy Hart for the World Middleweight Championship in MLW’s April 5th Battle Riot event at the Melrose Ballroom, Ace would be raring to go in order to get another shot at the title very soon.

He is slowly figuring out who he is as a character while evolving his movesets into dynamite of excitement and aerial prowess. Only 21, Austin could continue to develop into one of the hotter young wrestlers on the indy scene. It will be interesting to see what he brings to the table in the near future.
