• Austin Aries Reacts To Former WWE & Impact Star Making Fun Of His Height
Impact World Champion Austin Aries will defend his Title against Johnny Impact (John Morrison in WWE) at Impact Wrestling’s Bound For Glory PPV on October 14.
Ahead of their PPV match, Johnny made fun of Aries’ height by tweeting the following (he replied to a tweet from Impact stating Johnny standing over Aries on TV):
“When does anyone not stand tall over Austin Aries?”
Below is what Aries replied:
“Ahh, the form of discrimination that’s still super cool: Short Shaming.
If I joked race, retards, your gay look…if I fat shamed your husky wife, INSTANT OUTRAGE!!
But you can predictably cut on me over my height, genetics I don’t control, and it’s just FUNNY!”
Both men deleted their tweets later.
