AJ Styles will be appearing on the Stone Cold Podcast after RAW goes off the air on the USA Network on June 20th . WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin recently spoke with Sports Illustrated and during the interview, Austin explained why he thinks Styles could be a top guy in WWE. Here is what he had to say:
“A.J. Styles just carried Roman Reigns to two world class matches back-to-back. The second one wasn’t as good as the first, but it’s hard to top an all-time classic. Reigns carried his end, but that was all A.J. They keep beating that kid, and they’ve got a potential superstar on their hands,” Austin said.
“(Styles) has only been working 16, 18 years, he’s got it figured out. Put a rocket on his ass and send him to the moon. I would love to see them run with Styles. I called him over the last time I saw him, which was before he got into that string of really good matches, and we’d never met. I said, ‘Hey man, good luck.’ When you see guys like that – who have been around the world and are veterans, you want them to finally get paid. He’s paid a million dues and he ain’t made no money. I want to see the kid go out and have a seven-figure year finally.”
