AJ Styles talks about his career growth in Japan before jump to WWE
ESPN.com is featuring an interview with WWE World Champion AJ Styles talking about a variety of topics including the upcoming WWE 2K17 video game, his career growth in Japan before signing with WWE and he he would like to face in WWE still.
On his career growth in Japan after leaving TNA:
“I think that I made a lot of noise in my career, and with my work ethic when I was in Japan. I think a lot of people were noticing what was going on. Especially with Tanahashi and Nakamura, having so many amazing matches with those guys. Who’s to say? Do I think Vince McMahon was looking at my matches in Japan going “We need him?” No. He wasn’t, he’s too busy. There’s no way. But somebody may have been looking and going ‘all right, I like this guy. Let’s give him a shot.'”
On who he would still like to face in WWE:
“I always say when it comes to dream matches that is not up to me, that’s up to the WWE Universe. That’s up to the fans. But there is a guy on SmackDown that I have yet to wrestle yet that’s certainly gonna happen at some point, and that’s Randy Orton.”
