Vince Russo spoke last night on the WrestlingInc Podcast about reports that AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows have given notice to NJPW and are signing with WWE. Check out the highlights:
On Styles: “I worked with AJ for probably a decade. Being on both sides of that fence, I don’t see AJ Styles as WWE material,” Russo said. “AJ is one of the most class acts through and through that I know. He’s a good, good man, a great father, a stand up guy. I was on the other side of that fence. I was in WWE when it was political warfare.”
On Styles potentially having a hard time in WWE: “I think it’s going to be tough for someone like AJ to exist in that environment. Especially when he’s never been put in an environment like that before. We handled him with kid gloves in TNA from day one. He was the TNA guy. He was always treated that way. He’s going into a different environment. He may be the greatest wrestler on the planet but I don’t know if he’ll have the makeup for that environment. I’m talking strictly personality. Nothing to do with size, capabilities, just as a human being in that type of atmosphere,” Russo said.
