Russo states AJ Styles should put his career on the line

Russo told Dr. Chris Featherstone on the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Writing With Russo that Styles is a believable babyface opponent for Roman Reigns. As part of the storyline, Russo believes that the ‘Phenomenal One’ could prepare for a title match by putting his career on the line against several superstars.

“You could do a little storyline and angle where AJ says, ‘You know what, I’ve been in this business for so many years and I might be at the tail end. Man, it’s at times like this I really need to challenge myself. I’ve put challenges in front of me my whole career, this and that.’ Bro, what happens if AJ basically declares, ‘The next match I lose, I retire,’” Russo said.

Russo also stated that a retirement storyline would work against any World Champion. He said:

“And he goes on a run, bro, and then all of a sudden, whether it’s Reigns or somebody defeats Reigns, and all of a sudden now you really believe… is AJ going to [cause an] upset? Because if he doesn’t, on his own word, he’s gotta walk away. You could make that a very, very believable angle, bro,” Russo said.
