Austin Aries disputes claims that Jim Cornette fired him from ROH

Former WWE/Impact/ROH star Austin Aries appeared on Brian Hebner’s “Refin’ It Up” podcast. Among other topics, Aries talked about the heat that Jim Cornette has with him stemming from their time together in ROH:

“Jim came into Ring of Honor at a time right after a regime change. I was very close with Gabe Sapolsky. I spent a lot of time in the Ring of Honor offices. In those days, I was running the school. Obviously, I owe Gabe a lot for putting me in the position he did with that company.”

“When the regime change happened, there was a lot of disorder. They brought Adam Pearce in. I was asked to kind of help him run some of the locker rooms when he couldn’t be there, but I don’t think anybody else was given that information. So it came off as me trying to take over control, but it was something I was asked to do, but I wasn’t really given the tools to do it effectively.”
