In the high-octane world of professional wrestling, few stars shine as brightly as AJ Styles, a sentiment echoed by wrestling legend and AEW's Mark Henry. As the WWE Universe gears up for an exhilarating Royal Rumble this weekend, where Roman Reigns is set to defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a Fatal 4-Way against LA Knight, AJ Styles, and Randy Orton, Henry's recent comments on "Busted Open Radio" have added a layer of intrigue and admiration to the event.
Henry, known for his insightful wrestling analysis, didn't hold back in expressing his awe of Styles' in-ring prowess. "We often speak about a five-tool player who possesses a complete set of skills. AJ Styles is precisely that, and more.
Imagine a truck equipped with every imaginable tool, that's AJ," Henry explained. He further emphasized Styles' unused potential, suggesting that even with his impressive performances, we've yet to see the full extent of his capabilities.
"That's how exceptional AJ Styles is. It's a rarity to find someone who can match what he brings to the ring," he added.
Triple H's Key Role
Paul "Triple H" Levesque, the current WWE Chief Content Officer, played a pivotal role in bringing Styles into the WWE fold.
After recognizing Styles' deep understanding of the wrestling world, Levesque recommended signing him following the end of his tenure with NJPW in 2016. Styles, often hailed as one of the greatest wrestlers ever, made a surprise entrance in the Royal Rumble match that same year, shortly after signing with WWE.
His impact was immediate and profound. Since his debut, Styles, a TNA legend, has ascended to the upper echelons of WWE stardom. He is a two-time WWE Champion and has been a consistent highlight of WWE programming. His recent return to WWE TV, following a two-month hiatus, has been met with excitement and anticipation from fans and peers alike.
As the WWE Universe eagerly anticipates the Royal Rumble, Mark Henry's high praise for AJ Styles sets the stage for a potentially career-defining performance for Styles, adding another layer of excitement to this already highly anticipated event.
