WWE Superstar AJ Styles has one of the more recognizable entrance themes in all of pro wrestling. But the track was written with another wrestler originally in mind – James Storm.
During a recent interview with “Inside The Ropes,” The Phenomenal One talked about how his entrance was meant for Storm. He said,
“Well, I gotta admit, it wasn’t made for me. It was made, from the way I understand it, James Storm, when he was in NXT. Maybe he came out to it once. I’m not sure if he came out to it, but it was made for him. I kind of explained what I wanted to hear, and it was that song they presented. And I said, ‘That’s the one. That’s the one I’m coming out to. It’s cool.’ So, it suited — they didn’t know it, but they made it for me.”
Fans first got to hear the theme for Styles when he entered the 2016 Royal Rumble at number 3.
