AJ Styles Says He's In His Prime Now, Talks Daniel Bryan's WWE Retirement, Dealing with Injuries

Rapzilla has published part 2 of their interview with AJ Styles. The full interview can be read at this link. Here are highlights:


Feeling like he has a lot left in the tank:

“I’d say I’m in my prime now. You don’t really get there until you’re in your thirties. Unless you have been wrestling the top guys for a long time you really don’t get that experience. I feel like I really got that now. I’m able to capitalize on the things I normally wouldn’t. Now is a good time as any. Experience is everything…it’s just like life. We learn from everything we’ve faced in our lives and we know what not to do. Everything that’s happened to me no matter where I’ve been has worked to this point now. I get it, this is where I need to be. I belong in the WWE.”

Daniel Bryan retiring:

“We had unbelievable matches and selfishly I was hoping I’d have the chance to wrestle Daniel Bryan and have one of those classic matches that we had years ago. I know we could definitely do that. It’s unfortunate what had happened and he handled it better than I handled it. That was very emotional for him and he seemed pretty strong and confident that everything is going to be ok. A class act. I can’t say enough great things about him.”

Dealing with injuries and one day possibly having to hang up the boots due to his style:

“Until something unexpected happens, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. You have to keep listening to your body, protect it and also take care it. Don’t wait until the last second. Injuries are going to happen and being in pain is part of the lifestyle we live.”
