AJ Styles Says Roman Reigns Should Get A Lot More Credit, Talks Possible Retirement, Main Eventing in WWE

WWE star AJ Styles recently spoke with Rolling Stone and below are some interview highlights:

On Roman Reigns being an underrated athlete:

“Absolutely. I think he’s a better athlete than a lot of people realize. He should get a lot more credit for his athleticism. He’s unbelievable, he can do a lot of stuff. I think he’s been able to showcase that with me. We’re doing something right – I don’t think people gave Roman a chance; in fact. I think a lot of fans jumped on the bandwagon when someone started booing, instead of taking the chance to see what he could do in the ring.”

<br />On main eventing in WWE:

“I mean, there’s plenty of people who’ve never gotten the opportunity to wrestle at WrestleMania. To perform there and do that, I never thought it would ever happen. I had learned to live with it. So to say I did that is a big notch in my belt. Now I can say I’ve worked a WWE main event, but it keeps on going. There’s a lot of goals I’ve set in the WWE that I want to accomplish. I’m always setting goals for myself, and someday I want to be in the Hall of Fame.”

On when if he thinks about retirement:

“No. I know that retirement will be in a couple years. I don’t know how many a couple is at this point, but the ultimate goal is the opportunity to retire [and then] do something else you’re interested in. There’s a lot of guys who have retired and went into podcasts or TV shows, so there’s other things out there. But also you want to spend time with your family, because when you’re in WWE you’re gonna work for your money, and I expect to do that. But that means you’ll be on the road a little more and might miss some things at home, but you get to make that up by retiring and being with them 24/7 – which might annoy them to a certain degree [laughs].”
