This is will be Aries' first bout since he "walked out" of IMPACT Wrestling at their Bound For Glory event on Oct. 14. Aries' contract with IMPACT Wrestling reportedly expired following Bound For Glory. There were reports stating that Aries and IMPACT were working a "loose cannon" gimmick, but Aries has remained mostly out of the spotlight since leaving the company.
His only notable actions have been the retweeting of negative comments aimed at him on social media and his war of words with Jim Cornette.
