It was noted several weeks ago that Austin Aries was in the doghouse in TNA (I believe it was because of an argument he had with management backstage). There was a period where he wasn’t being used. The only reason why the brought him back to TV was because Samoa Joe was out dealing with family issues so they used Aries to fill in for Joe’s spot. Whatever the issues were between Aries and TNA have blown over so Aries is now back to being used regularly.
