Since his appearance in the 2016 Royal Rumble, AJ Styles has cemented himself as one of the best in-ring workers in all of WWE. He has had great matches with several big names in the company, but perhaps his greatest feud was with John Cena.
AJ Styles’ feud with John Cena truly elevated him to the top of the company and raised his credibility, especially after Styles defeated John Cena at the 2016 WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view.
While speaking to the After the Bell podcast, AJ Styles talked about being a veteran in the pro wrestling world and being a mentor to the younger WWE Superstars. Styles also admitted that he learned a lot from John Cena.
“[Mentoring new talent] is a job that most of us should have after 20 years of being in the business to help the younger talent as guys like the older talent has helped me so much. We can go back to Jerry Lynn, Christopher Daniels and John Cena. I know it sounds crazy for me to say John Cena but I learned so much from that guy. It’s only right that I pass down what knowledge I have to Omos who can and I think will be a huge superstar in the WWE”
AJ Styles is currently one half of the RAW Tag Team Champions along with Omos and is currently on a solid run with the championships. It is likely AJ Styles will continue to guide Omos and others as he is a true veteran.
