The feud between Johnny Impact & Taya Valkyrie against Austin Aries isn't dead yet. At least not on social media.
It's been awhile since we've heard from former IMPACT World Champion Austin Aries, but he was back in form on social media prior to Christmas. Aries infamously walked out on IMPACT Wrestling at Bound For Glory following the conclusion of his bout against Johnny Impact. Aries lost the match, immediately popped up after being pinned, flipped off IMPACT announcer and Co-Executive Vice President Don Callis and walked out of the building. Aries' contract with IMPACT reportedly expired following the event.
Aries has worked for various promotions since the incident, but has mainly stayed out of the spotlight. On Dec. 23, he tweeted out a photo of himself at a UCE Wrestling event in Hawaii.
The tweet caught the attention of Johnny Impact.
And from there, Aries fired back.
For fucks sake, you’re @IMPACTWRESTLING champ now, I’m gone, yet you can’t stop thinking and yapping about me? I honestly haven’t thought about you or that company since the last time I was asked why my back still hurts so bad. Move on to your new Pursuit John, I have. https://t.co/PuwHoyWDKq— Austin Aries (@AustinAries) December 24, 2018
Taya Valkyrie, Johnny Impact's wife, couldn't help but jump in. Aries and Valkyrie got into a social media war of words prior to Bound For Glory, with Valkyrie using short jokes at Aries' expense and Aries calling her "husky." Valkyrie once again took a shot at Aries' height in their latest spat.
I’m glad you feel the need to comment and be a dick in a pathetic effort of remaining relevant. Yo Austin, Santa Clause called and is wondering when you’re returning to the workshop. https://t.co/gd3sllQSwA— Wera Loca (@TheTayaValkyrie) December 24, 2018
No NEED sweetheart, simply a RESPONSE because your hubby can’t seem to keep my name out his mouth.— Austin Aries (@AustinAries) December 25, 2018
And Relevant? Like the @TMZ spot and the extra million views I got for John and his big @IMPACTWRESTLING title win? Relevancy is shit y’all fame whores worry about, not me. https://t.co/1sbKAebNjN
It's unknown if or when Aries will return to IMPACT Wrestling. Johnny Impact still holds the IMPACT World Title and is scheduled to face Brian Cage at their Jan. 6 Homecoming event. Valkyrie will challenge Tessa Blanchard for the Knockouts Championship on the same night.
