AJ Styles wants to main event a WrestleMania with Shinsuke Nakamura. Styles revealed on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness that the spot during the MITB Ladder match where he and Shinsuke had a stare down was his idea. He wanted it to happen so that Vince McMahon could hear the reaction from the crowd.
Styles was part of a Q&A panel this past weekend at Wizard World Columbus comic convention and was asked about which Superstar’s he would like to work with in the future. Styles admitted that he’d most like to wrestle Nakamura:
“I’m picking Shinsuke. Sorry, that’s nothing on Finn Balor. The reason why I say this is because at Wrestlemania, it’s not going to happen with Finn Balor and I. Why? Because he’s on Raw. Shinsuke’s my best chance getting into that Main Event picture at Wrestlemania. That’s why he wins the championship. I hope he wins it so I can get in there and wrestle him at Wrestlemania.”
