AJ Styles Comments On Being Recognized As One Of The Best, His WWE Debut and Video Games
Posted By: Ben Jordan Kerin on Dec 29, 2017
WWE Champion AJ Styles recently took part in an interview with The Orlando Sentinel. During the interview, he discussed being recognized as one of the best performers, his WWE debut at the Royal Rumble and his joy of video games. Below are the highlights:
Being recognized as one of the best performers in the world today:
"I take a lot of pride in what I do. No matter who I’m in the ring with, I want it to look like what it’s supposed to be. We call it sports entertainment, but it’s supposed to be a contact sport. I want to make that in-ring contact as real as possible, and [also make it real] outside the ring.
“The magic is making the fans question whether these two guys really like each other or hate each other. That performance is what the business is all about … it’s the storylines that people remember."
His WWE debut in the Royal Rumble:
"Everything pales in comparison to the Royal Rumble. The response I got that night from the fans, after a couple of years out of the U.S. mainstream, is something I’ll never forget. I was really worried about how much the people would actually remember me, but that response made it something really special."
His love of video games with other Superstars:
"These are a group of guys and girls I really enjoy going to work with. You walk in and you’ve got [the New Day’s] Xavier Woods and his video games – that’s right up my alley. So a bunch of us start playing UFC or Madden, and that’s fun. Because you know, idle hands are the devil’s workshop."
