Nobody would have thought that AJ Styles will be a world champion in WWE 5 years ago, but in his WWE career so far, he has not only won the WWE Championship a couple of times but become the face of SmackDown Live as well.
During a recent interview with Amarillo.com to promote an upcoming WWE Live Event, Styles talked about how his current rivalry with Samoa Joe is different than their previous encounters and more.
When asked if he expected this much success in WWE, AJ said that he is surely not the only one surprised by this and if someone would have told him about it years ago he would have said that it’s ridiculous:
Surely I’m not the only one surprised by this. If you’d told me years ago that I’d be WWE champion two times, a United States champion and you’re going to have the belt at least half your career, I would have said that’s ridiculous. But, hard work has paid off. In the long run, if I was to lose this title tomorrow, I’ve had a great run and I’m very happy.
Apart from this, AJ Styles also talked about which guys he likes to watch wrestling and he said that he loves to watch big guys like Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar.
