TNA News: A.J. Styles comments on dropping the TNA Title to Rob Van Dam, wishes TNA officials would seek out his opinion more, comments on the changes and mistakes that the company has made
Aug 3, 2010 - 01:12 AM


Pro Wrestling Illustrated Podcast with A.J. Styles
Host: Brady Hicks
Available at TheBradyHicks.com.


This week on PWI Weekly, A.J. Styles stops by to talk about all things TNA Wrestling. Find out what Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s top ranked wrestler in the world (PWI 500) thinks about TNA and what it needs to do to beat WWE, who he wants to see join the company, and what he thinks about Ric Flair, Dixie Carter, Batista, Michelle McCool, and Christian.

On Losing the TNA Title to RVD: "I definitely didn’t understand it. For the life of me, I couldn’t understand it. I was very surprised that I would lose that title after holding it for so long, and to somebody who has basically been out of wrestling for over a year, and was coming in from WWE. And he should have been tired from wrestling a match before that. It was like I'm not the star I thought I was. I guess I’m just a guy in TNA."

On the changes TNA has made: "I think there are mistakes that have been done. Things where you have to look at it and realize you have to take a step back. There were some people brought in that I don’t know that we needed, but there are other guys I think deserved a shot."

On being the face of TNA: "I don’t know. People tell me that I’m the face, but sometimes I don’t feel like that. Don’t get me wrong. My peers definitely treat me with respect. I guess sometimes I wish that the higher-ups would come to me sometimes and ask, 'Hey AJ, what do you think about this?'"

On being different: "I don’t want to be like anyone else. I want to be AJ Styles. I want people to look at me, and have me be separated from everybody else."

On his favorite feuds: "Christopher Daniels, Joe, and myself had some great interactions. Kurt and myself, that was a great little program we worked. And even Abyss, we had some incredible matches. The list goes on. It actually seems like working with everybody in TNA has been a favorite."

All that, plus what could have been had AJ accepted a WWE developmental deal in 2002, who he would “steal” from the WWE roster, and if TNA will do ECW some justice. A must-listen for any TNA fan … or wrestling fan in general!
