AJ Styles is one of the most technical wrestlers to ever appear in the WWE ring. During his career in this business, which began way back in 1998, he has fought in the most important federations in the world. In addition to earning several accolades in Vince McMahon's company, the 44-year-old from Jacksonville has also shown off in New Japan Pro Wrestling and TNA.
Styles was also listed by 'Pro Wrestling Illustrated' magazine as the first in the ranking of the best superstars of the decade 2010-2020. AJ is currently engaged in a feud with RK-Bro along with his tag team partner Omos.
The two lost their belts on August 21 at SummerSlam after 133 days of reign. During the latest edition of 'Legion of RAW' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo was not satisfied with the treatment WWE is giving to Styles.
Vince Russo on AJ Styles
"The problem is that WWE is reducing the value of AJ Styles more and more" - said Vince Russo with great clarity. “At this moment in his career, everything about him is going under the radar.
I don't know if you've done it. It is clear that AJ is getting older and is finding it harder and harder to keep up with certain rhythms. It is no mystery that he is fast approaching the end of his career. They pay him very well in WWE, so he has no problem with that.
I take the liberty of saying that maybe that's the only thing he matters to Styles at this juncture. He makes a lot of money and his programming is pretty light. I begin to think that he is happy like this,” he added.
Styles became the 22nd wrestler in WWE history to complete the 'Grand Slam' Additionally, his second reign as WWE champion is the eighth longest in the belt's history at 371 days. We'll see if WWE gives him one last big stint before finally hanging up his boots.
After WWE on Fox shared a photo on Twitter asking members of the WWE Universe which AJ Styles vs. John Cena match is the best, a fan replied to the post by calling out the difference between Styles' classic bouts with the Leader of the Cenation back then to his current run.
Speaking on Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast, Styles admitted that it will be difficult for him to leave WWE when the time comes. “That stuff’s hard,” Styles said. “It’s hard to leave, it’s hard to adjust once you’re done.
But I got a taste I guess what that’s like with the COVID stuff, but I didn’t say I liked it. I’m not sure when it’s gonna be over for me but, as I said before, I signed my last contract, so we’ll see when that is”.
