WWE Champion AJ Styles recently appeared on “Heated Conversations with Booker T” to talk about his career and more. During the interview, Styles was asked about being the WWE Champion. Styles noted that he has been a champion in every promotion that he has worked for but there is nothing close to being a champion for the biggest wrestling promotion in the world (WWE). He noted that being WWE Champion is huge to him and believes that he has to deliver day in and day out. He enjoys that pressure and that keeps him active and feels young again.
Styles stated in a recent interview that he would like to wrestle Shawn Michaels at the 2017 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. When asked about the possible match, Styles said that it is not up to him if the match takes place but rather it’s up to Michaels because he is retired from pro wrestling. He is up for whatever match the fans want to see him in. “Whatever they want, I want to deliver; and whether or not Shawn wants to do something like that, that’s up to him. I totally respect who he is and what he has done for this business, so that is totally in his court.”
