WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins and AJ Styles put on a classic performance in their title match at Sunday’s (May 19, 2019) WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view event in Hartford, CT at the XL Center on the WWE Network.
While talking with Newsweek, Styles reflected on the contest and what he told Rollins after the match, which was one of the best contests of the night.
This was a match that not only both stars but fans as well have been looking forward to seeing for several years now. It’s safe to say that they didn’t disappoint.
“I told Seth I was right when I said 13 years ago that he would be something special in this business,” he said. “We both respected each other that was never in question,” Styles said. “It was two guys, two egos and a lot of testosterone that you’re going to get a fight when two big dogs get next to each other. Tempers go awry and next thing you know we’re fighting and it is what it is, but when it’s over and someone comes out the better man you shake hands.”
