- TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries sent in the following:
Austin Aries here. Not to let facts get on the way of a good story but I worked for 3 years of THQ’s WWE video game. My voice over work for this years game was done way before I signed with TNA. And I make very good money with TNA for that matter. Thought you might like to have some actual factual info instead of making things up
Austin is speaking of Friday’s installment of Ask WNW on this question and answer:
I would rank Austin Aries as one of the best workers in TNA Impact Wrestling. How did the company feel about him working with WWE for their WWE ’12 video game?
As far as I know TNA had no problem with Austin Aries providing dialogue for the Jacob Cass character in WWE ’12. They probably encouraged it as another revenue stream for him to earn money. Guys like Aries aren’t making a lot working in TNA as it’s not near at the level of WWE. I agree his work is great but just because he’s on television doesn’t mean he’s making a large salary.
I apologize for the error and can assure you I wasn’t “making things up.” I was going on the information I had to answer the question. I am glad he emailed in to provide further details.
