The Phenomenal One’s second title run with the gold has spanned over 300 days. Ever since defeating Jinder Mahal for the title in England, Styles has not looked back since.
In a chat with Cultaholic, while promoting WWE 2K19, the champion was asked about the evolving perception of the WWE Champion not always being a huge guy. Styles stated:
“I think that we’re moving in a new direction, “I think athletes are smaller these days in everything. In American football. Rugby… even that stuff is changing. Guys are not as big as they used to, but they’re faster and quicker and better athletes. I think that’s in literally every sport that we’re seeing these days. And that’s not a bad thing. That’s a good thing for me.”
Styles concluded by mentioning that his size has held him back during the initial stages of his career and he is making it count now. Styles said:
“So I make everything that I do count, Every move, every strike is gonna count.”
