AJ Styles Comments On Which NXT Call-Ups He’d Like To Face, Not Wearing A Cup In The Ring


Former WWE Champion AJ Styles was recently interviewed by WrestleZone to talk about several professional wrestling topics. “The Phenomenal One” talked about which NXT call-ups he’d like to share the ring with, why he doesn’t wear a cup in the ring, and still feeling like there’s one more level he has yet to reach in WWE. Here are the highlights:

Which recent NXT call-up he’d like to share the ring with: “I’ve never been in the ring with EC3 before, so that will be fun to see a match with him. But, there are several that are coming up through NXT shortly, and there’s a number of them that I could have amazing matches with.”

Why he doesn’t wear a cup inside the ring: “You know, even when I played baseball when I was younger, I didn’t like wearing a cup because it got in the way. It just was in the way. If I wore one now, and I did a splash and missed, how would that feel? There are things that could happen in a match that this whole cup thing could actually hurt me. Just sayin’. I don’t need to have any more kids anyway.”

One more level he has yet to reach in WWE: “I feel like there’s one more level that I need to reach before I really feel like this ‘WWE Superstar’ and that’s really made a difference in this business. I’m not sure how I’m going to get there, but I’m going to continue to work hard and see what happens next.”
