AJ Styles and Roman Reigns had a pretty great match which saw The Phenomenal One going over.
Roman Reigns recently appeared on CBS Sports’ In This Corner podcast where he discussed AJ Styles and how much of a joy it was to wrestle him.
“It’s hard for me to rank [all-time best opponents]. Do you know what I mean? Like, because I have such a deep respect for all the guys that I’m out there with and for me to rank them, I’d feel weird about that. But I think both AJ and I know what we had going on and we can both say that it was special. And I’ll wrestle AJ for the rest of my life. I’ll go out on a limb and say that I would have no problems being in that ring with him if you’re like, ‘hey, that’s the only person you’re going to wrestle,’ I’d be like, ‘well, thank you! That’s easy.’ I mean, it really is. If you don’t know by now, if you didn’t know AJ before his coming to the WWE, there’s a reason why he’s in the WWE. There’s a reason why he’s used the way he’s used and it was an absolute pleasure to be in the ring with him.”
Reigns added, “it was one of those situations I honestly cherish and I’ll never forget those matches we had. I thought our chemistry was incredible from day one in the [Royal] Rumble. Do you know what I mean? And we had no clue of each other outside just being in that ring and dancing with each other and it was magic. Hopefully, one day, we’ll do it again. He’s over there on the blue side and that’s important because with his leadership, his tenure, being all around the world and having a deep respect for this business. And like we talked about before, that passion, you can’t fake that.”
