In a recent interview with Bleacher Report, AJ Styles spoke about his talks with AEW. Explaining that at the end of the day, it’s business and he will go with what’s best for business. He does mention he was annoyed at the time, it all kicked off with WWE firing the Good Brothers.
He never blamed the company. It was actually the situation that he didn’t like. It was originally reported that AJ Styles was wanted for the first episode of AEW. So seeing this new information on the events is a new look at the situation.
What AJ Styles had to say:
“Like I said, this is a business,” he said. “I’m going to go where business is best for AJ Styles. I like WWE. I like everything about it. And I know it. I’m used to it. I don’t want to leave. This is a business, though. This is what we do for a living. Was it close? I wouldn’t say it was close for me. Like I said, I want to be in WWE.
The situation with Gallows and Anderson, you know, with everything that’s going on, they should have gone ahead and went that route when their second contracts came around. But hindsight is 20/20. You’ve read the dirt sheets and whatnot, and you know how pissed I was about the whole situation. Not at them, but at the situation. I think they’re happier doing what they’re doing now. If that’s the case, then I’m happy for them and, like I said, everything happens for a reason.”
Could he sign in AEW in the future?
AJ Styles has recently done an interview saying that he wants to retire without any massive injuries. The best place to do that could be AEW. As in the future, it could still have less days to work. Although WWE will try and hold onto him no matter what, by offering him a lot of money. If AEW does offer the right contract to AJ Styles.
It sounds like he wouldn’t think twice before signing if it’s right for him. Remember to stay up to date with the latest news on TheOvertimer. Don’t forget to visit Gamestingr for great videos, news, and gameplay!
