AJ Styles Speaks On Joining WWE, Possible Match With Shawn Michaels, More


WWE Champion AJ Styles recently appeared on “Heated Conversations with Booker T” to talk about his career and more.

On joining WWE:

Well, the fact that you said I earned it, means a lot. I don’t want anything given to me. I want to earn everything that I have gotten, that way they don’t say I didn’t have to work for it. Being here has certainly been a blessing. You know, all the stories you’ve heard in the past, well, either they weren’t true or this place as changed because every expectation that I have had has gone above and beyond. I mean, this company is an amazing place to work.

On being WWE Champion:

Just like you said; I have been champion everywhere, but there is nothing even close as to being a WWE champion. It’s so world-wide, and everybody knows who WWE is. So many times I had a belt, or championship in other companies, and I was going through immigration, people would say, what did you do over there? My response would be that I was a wrestler. They would say, oh, you mean like the WWE? Every time, so now, I say that I am with WWE. That’s huge, and the one thing that you have to do–day in and day out is deliver, and that’s pressure to be able to do that, but I enjoy that kind of pressure. It keeps me active, and it keeps me young to be honest with you.

On a possible match with Shawn Michaels:

It’s not up to me to have those dream matches, it’s up to the WWE Universe to have those dream matches. Whatever they want, I want to deliver; and whether or not Shawn wants to do something like that, that’s up to him. I totally respect who he is and what he has done for this business, so that is totally in his court.
