AJ Styles has been touted as one of the best pro wrestlers by both fans and wrestlers alike. Styles continues to work at a high level despite growing older and continues to amaze fans.
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.
While speaking on Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast, AJ Styles talked about how important John Cena was for his career in WWE, as he feuded with Cena for a long time in 2016 and early 2017. He also feuded with Roman Reigns around that time and that helped him as well.
“I think the reason why I am where I am is because of guys like John Cena. I would throw Roman Reigns in that match [category] as well. The match I had with him that carried on to give me the opportunity to work with Cena. It was awesome. SummerSlam, our first big match that we had together was unbelievable. Two guys, I always say this, who are very much not alike but in that ring we gel so well.”
AJ Styles is currently one half of the RAW Tag Team Champions and became a grand slam champion after winning the titles at WrestleMania 37 with Omos. Styles will remain a mainstay of WWE television for as long as he can wrestler and that is not changing anytime soon.
