AJ Styles re-signed with WWE, adding another five years to his time with the company back in March. In a recent interview with Newsweek, the Phenomenal One revealed that it would be his last pro wrestling contract.
I can tell you that this contract that I’ve signed is my last. This is the perfect place for me to be. It’s family-oriented, I have no problem taking my family to the shows. It’s a PG product, which I enjoy. I’m in the best place I can be for my career.
Styles also commented on the world of professional wrestling outside of WWE. Though many are looking for a return to the days of the Monday Night Wars with AEW, he believes that no one should be attempting to compete with the global juggernaut.
As far as the indies and whatnot, I don’t think they should ever be competitive with the WWE. They should compete with themselves to make sure they get better every day because there’s no competition. WWE is globally huge. It’s unbelievable to know how big the WWE is. People don’t understand it.
Don’t compete. Be something different. Be the alternative.
