Ace Austin Signs New Contract with TNA

TNA Wrestling announced that Ace Austin recently signed a new official contract to remain in the company for the foreseeable future.

Austin’s signing was first announced by Denise Salcedo in a recent interview she had with Austin. In the interview, Austin gave his reasons for staying in TNA stating:

“I am definitely looking to stay with TNA because being with TNA allows you freedom that doesn’t exist anywhere else. If I stay with TNA, my options are still open in the whole world. I mean there is no working relationship that TNA is not open to having and I love that. That’s been one of the huge selling points for me since I first started, was the freedom and I’m actively working on being a part of some acting and stunt projects this year and it’s a realm I really wanna get a taste of and the only place I can really do that effectively is TNA and… not even just that, it’s unfinished business. Three-time X Division Champion, two-time tag team champion. There’s still one missing and it means a lot to me to complete that collection. When there’s still opportunity on the table, you gotta reach the peak before you can look towards the next peak and I am still climbing.”
