WWE News: Austin Aries narrates heartfelt story after recent trip to the WWE Performance Center
An act of kindness leads to a great story about diversity.
What's the story?
Austin Aries posted a picture on his Instagram account recently to tell a great story about diversity after stopping to help someone with a stalled vehicle. Take a look at his post below:
In case you didn't know...
Austin Aries made his NXT debut in March of 2016, and nearly a year after that he would make his debut in the Cruiserweight Division by attacking Neville. On July 7th of this year, the WWE released Aries from his contract.
The heart of the matter
What stands out is the first line of his post, "driving home from the WWE Performance Center." Before anyone gets their hopes up that Aries might be returning to the WWE, the likely reason why he was there was to visit his girlfriend Thea Trinidad, who is known as Zelina Vega, the manager of Andrade Cien Almas in NXT.
One can also speculate that Aries didn't leave the WWE on good terms as 2K pulled him from the WWE 2K18 video game that will release worldwide on October 17th.
The main story here is the great anecdote Aries told of four men from different cultural backgrounds coming together to help someone out in need. In a tumultuous time in the United States, Aries said it perfectly in his post:
"Could you find any four different looking people from any different walks of life?! Yet we all came together, randomly and simply as good humans, to help one another."
"And WE can quiet the aggressive and divisive messages we're being bombarded with by extending our hands out to each other. Actions do speak louder than words."
Austin Aries will take part in Tommy Dreamer's House Of Hardcore promotion next month. On November 17th, they will be in St. James, New York and on November 18th, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I think it was great of Aries to not only stop to help the gentlemen in need, but to also share the story of four guys from different ethical backgrounds that came together. After the tragedy in Las Vegas and how divided the United States has become, this sort of story needed to be shared.
