AJ Styles has a very positive attitude toward WWE part-timers

For those who aren’t a fan of part-time WWE stars coming in during WrestleMania, AJ Styles might change your mind on that. Here is what he had to say on the matter when he spoke to the Gorilla Position podcast:

“I can tell you this: Goldberg, and what him and Brock have done together, have made sure that people are going to come and watch WrestleMania. They want to see this match, and if they have to come see them they also have to come to see me. And now I have the opportunity to impress them, while they’re there and I’ll make AJ fans and Shane McMahon fans out of them. That’s my job, and so, am I mad at these guys for being Superstars like, the ultimate, that everybody knows? Absolutely not. When they [said], ‘Oh, part-timers, yeah, [they] come in and do that.’ You know what? Let them be part-timers, if they can do that, then they have earned it and to tell you the truth, when they’re not here that’s more money in my pocket. So that’s not a bad thing, ya know? Let’s work together. I don’t care who’s on top, just as long as we’re all able to pay our bills.”

    I don’t mind them doing big dream match things like this, every so often… but personally, I’d much rather see part time guys used to help elevate main roster talent.

    Give a guy like Cesaro a shot against Lesnar, have him lose, but look really strong, with a few near-falls, and it could lift him much further up the card. Part time guys don’t even have to lose to help others look good.

  • I was paid 104000 dollars last year by doing an on-line work and consequently I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r several hours everyday. I applied job opportunity I came across on the net and also I am excited that I was in a position to make such decent earnings. It’s really newbie-friendly and therefore I am so grateful that I found out regarding it. Find out more about what I do… http://nubr­.­co/uV9OuB

    I understand where you are both coming from. Putting people in seats is what it is all about.

    I happen to agree with him. Why should anyone feel belittled or threatened by Lesnar and Goldberg getting top-billing? Lesnar/Goldberg might get people into the building, but while they are there you can give the fans the match that they will remember the most. I for one will remember the Cena/Styles match standing out as one of the best matches I’ve ever seen and IMO best singles Royal Rumble match I’ve seen. That with the backdrop of having Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, and the Undertaker in the Royal Rumble match itself.

    As epic, important, and legendary as Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant was at Wrestlemania III and brought 93,173 people to the Pontiac Silverdome, what match do people talk about the most from the PPV?

    Randy “Macho Man” Savage vs. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat for the WWF Intercontinental Championship. Two mid-carders stole the show and had the best match of the night, probably the best “wrestling” match in Wrestlemania history in terms of work-rate by not relying too many false finishes, high-spots, and multiple kick-outs from finishing maneuvers. They made up their minds that they were going to tear the house down and they did.

    Of course today, because WWE management has a leash on everybody its hard for the wrestlers to take creative license without getting into trouble. Back then, as long as the finish was what was booked how you got there was on you.

    Spoken like the true WWE man you are now. Of course your going to agree with the company line. Nobody really goes against Vince in his world, if they like their job. Not saying he doesn’t truly feel this way but it feels a little kayfabe to me.
