During an appearance on Chael Sonnen’s “You’re Welcome” podcast, Chris Jericho had said that AJ Styles’ ‘Styles Clash’ move was banned upon Styles’ arrival to WWE. Jericho claims he played a part in the company allowing Styles to perform the move, making AJ’s transition to WWE more enjoyable. Here are some transcripts:
“It’s a cool feeling whenever you see guys that have worked long and hard to kind of achieve their goal, and obviously AJ coming in was a no-brainer.
“My favourite thing about AJ was that it started basically with me. I kind of helped him cut his teeth in the WWE, helped him get his finish unbanned.”
“I mean the Styles Clash was banned when he first came in and I kind of helped him unlock that so he could start using it, so all of that stuff, I kind of take an extra special pride in seeing him.”
