– What Culture recently spoke to AJ Styles at the 5* Wrestling event last Wednesday (Jan. 13). Styles has been getting a lot of buzz as of late due to his potentially signing with WWE. You can check out a video and some highlights below. It should be noted that during the interview, Styles was asked if his schedule would be free for bookings on January 24, which is the same night as the Royal Rumble this year. Styles replied, “sure,” with a mischievous looking smile on his face.
Styles on which opponents he would want to work with if he goes to WWE or NXT:“You ask that question already knowing the answer. That’s funny, you know… Finn Balor is one most people would like to see me wrestle. Prince Devitt if you will, from New Japan Pro Wrestling. And the guy’s very talented. Samoa Joe’s in NXT, I would do that all over again. There’s definitely up and coming guys I’d love to work with but there’s also guys I haven’t worked with in TNA and WWE. There’s a lot of guys I haven’t worked with. Hopefully I’ll get to wrestle them before it’s over. Great things are happening, crazy things in my life. I have a 1 year old daughter… I’ve got to add another tattoo and I don’t have a place to put it. It’s the crazy life of AJ Styles but it’s a good one.”
AJ Styles on what’s next for him: “I love what I do. I’m going to do what I do, best I think. I’m definitely not an artist but I can paint with the wrestling brush. I think I got some kind of thing going on with that. And I’m going to keep doing that as long as I can. Keep in mind, still gonna be able to walk away from this business. Will I have surgeries? Of course I will because I’m going to get old and I’ve hurt myself but that’s just the nature of the beast. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
