Reports were surfacing that WWE NXT Star Austin Aries was planning on taking some time off from the company, from a comment he tweeted from his Official Twitter Account, the day after WWE Extreme Rules, where he fought a tough battle against WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville.

And with that, it might be time for some serious life reflection and career reevaluation....@WWE #ExtremeRules

In a recent interview with Josh Barnett in USA Today however, Aries set the record straight on his Twitter comment, on whether or not he's actually going to leave the company.

"If you look at the full quote and what I said was, Everyone is dealing with various stuff. I don’t think there is anyone in the locker room is 100%. We’re all nicked and banged up to various degrees. Like anything else, you pick and choose the times you need address when it needs to be addressed and some times are better than others. I figure no matter what interview I do, the real good ‘journalists’ are going to find the completely irrelevant quotes that will drum up some controversy and stick it on their page to get some clicks and completely miss the real context of what the interview is about. That’s what we do nowadays and call it ‘journalism."

So, it would appear at least for now that Austin Aries plans on staying in the WWE.
