– Former ROH and Impact wrestler Austin Aries recently took part in an autograph signing at Wrestling Universe in Queens, New York earlier this week. The signing was advertised with the notice that Aries would not be wearing his mask for photo ops and urged all attendees to not wear a mask for the photo ops as well (via WrestlingInc.com), despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Aries commented on the signing event on his Instagram account, which you can see below.
Aries wrote the following on the signing event, where he provided autographed tinfoil hats:
“The new Austin Aries autographed Tin Foil Hats were a hit today at my signing in NY. I was pleasantly surprised by the conversations I had this weekend on the current state of affairs. I spoke with many who strongly dislike and don’t agree with what’s going on with the covaids and see the agenda for what it is. Plenty of relief when they could lower their face diaper while visiting and taking pictures. Maybe there’s hope for humanity after all… ‘So let’s pick a rabbit hole to jump down….have you heard of adrenochrome? HAARP maybe?’”
In the past, Aries has been outspoken regarding his views on wearing masks during the pandemic.
