Major League Wrestling have promoted through their Twitter that former Impact Wrestling and WWE Superstar Austin Aries is set to be appearing in the company.

Whilst no date was given, a GIF showing his name and logo was shown with the tagline coming soon to MLW underneath it.

Most people will be familiar with Aries from his time in WWE where he was a big acquisition for NXT originally then later in 205 Live where he served as commentary then a wrestler in a feud with Neville (now PAC). That feud saw the pair fight it out in the pre-show of Wrestlemania 33.

He was also a big player in Impact Wrestling both before and after joining WWE, having multiple runs in the company. His return to the company post WWE is considered his biggest as he became the Belt Collector, displaying countless different titles he was holding in other companies and Impact all over the world.

Aries is somewhat of a polarising figure in the wrestling world but still remains a massive draw for MLW and the wrestling world in general.

This news also comes hot off of the reveal that MLW had also signed Marshall and Ross Von Erich, sons of legend Kevin Von Erich.

What Aries does for the company and when he is making his appearance for the company will be revealed at a later date.
