AJ Styles Interested in Facing a "Babyface Rock"

AJ Styles Interested in Facing a “Babyface Rock” – The Rock returned to WWE in February as a babyface, but quickly switched to becoming “The Final Boss,” a new take on his heel character, when fans cheered for Cody Rhodes to be in the main event of WrestleMania XL. AJ Styles returned a month before The Rock, taking the role of a heel who was upset with LA Knight jumping in line and taking his spot.

Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Styles commented on a potential showdown with The Rock.

“Of course, I’m interested–but only if that means The Rock is turning babyface. I’m not interested in being a mediocre bad guy. I want to bring this to a whole new level. I like to think I’m one of the few old school guys left. I look back and I’m so thankful I was able to pay off my house. That’s one of those things I hoped to do in my career, that I could do something I enjoy and provide for my family–and still have something left over for retirement. I’ve stuck with it long enough to take care of everyone who needed to be taken care of. As bad, ugly, and mean as a heel is supposed to be, I’m going to be that guy. When I step into an arena, I want more boos than Dominik Mysterio. That’s what I’m after. That’s my job, and I want to do it better than anybody,” he said.

Styles challenged Cody Rhodes for the Undisputed WWE Championship at WWE Backlash, but came up short in his efforts to capture the title.
