Ace Austin is currently one of Impact Wrestling’s top stars. He recently revealed that he still has a lot of years remaining in his contract. Ace Austin made a very good impression soon after he debuted. He won the X-Division Title at Bound for Glory which is an amazing feat, even though Impact Wrestling is not as big as it used to be.
Just like many other wrestlers, Ace Austin also had favorite wrestlers. In fact, his style of wrestling is quite similar to that of Jeff Hardy and there is a big reason for that. Jeff Hardy is Ace Austin’s inspiration.
That is also one of the reasons why he relies a lot on high flying moves. He spoke about Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam on the WINCLY podcast. "Jeff Hardy was my favorite wrestler for a long time. Rob Van Dam – being in a locker room with him is awesome.
But my training comes from the Wild Samoans which is the most solid foundation that you can have getting into the wrestling business. It teaches you everything you need to know about the bare bone rules as far as respect," stated Austin.
"From there, my views were broadened by spending time on the East Coast with CZW. I don't like to stay anywhere for more than a year-and-a-half so I like to change my environment and the people I'm learning from because you can never learn enough."
