Current WWE Champion AJ Styles recently spoke with SI.com about various topics. During the interview, Styles explained that he would love to see Samoa Joe and NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura be called up from NXT to the main roster.
“I would love to see Samoa Joe up here and Shinsuke Nakamura,” said Styles. “I think it’s only a matter of time before those guys come up, and there are numerous younger talents that are going to come here shortly. It’s only a matter of time.
For the first time in his career, Styles will be featured in a WWE video game and anyone who has followed his career knows that he is a huge video game fan. Styles praised 2K for their work on the latest WWE video game.
“I’ve been a video game guy since I was eight years old and got my first Nintendo,” said Styles. “I’ve been addicted to video games ever since. I have been part of a video game before the WWE game, but it’s not worth talking about, and quite embarrassing, to be honest with you. 2K17 is amazing. The graphics are just awesome, and it’s fun to see that you can do pretty much anything and everything that you’ve ever seen on WWE television. Just being part of a great game in the 2K series is amazing, and I feel like I’m not the only one who thinks that – the fans are having a pretty good time with it. I’m just jealous of the ‘create a wrestler.’ You can literally create anyone that you’ve ever wanted. Any other game that comes out and tries to give 2K some competition, there is no competition. The library of moves sets 2K apart from any other wrestling game.”
