In his last interview, the former WWE Champion AJ Styles wanted to clarify his future, talking about his skills in the ring but also those outside the ring, going to define which roles he could play even outside the McMahon rings, but above all which he could never take charge, given the obvious flaws that the athlete would have outside the wrestler job according to his own admission.
Over the course of his career, AJ Styles has changed factions several times, playing both the role of the heel and that of the face, even becoming a special referee in occasional WWE ring appearances, but something we have rarely seen done at Phenomenal One, is to comment on a match of others, if not those of the friends of the OC, with the role of a "serious" and professional reporter who apparently would not be right for him.
AJ Styles' time in WWE so far
AJ Styles said that he would not make a good commentator because he would get too into the action, in a similar way to when he played video games. While you'd expect someone of Styles calibre to have a big role in WWE post-retirement, the role Styles envisioned himself in the future was that of a talent scout: "I don't think I would be a good commentator.
I get too involved. It's like when I play video games - I just get sucked in to it. It wouldn't be good. I could see myself being a recruiter or scout, if you will. I really want to find guys and girls that have wanted to be in the business their whole lives.
Or even find people that got into the business and just became obsessed with it, like I was. I never wanted to be a pro wrestler. Once I got it in my head that I was going to wrestle, it was all I thought about. It was like a vision quest.
You couldn't stop me and couldn't tell me that I wasn't going to make it in the business. You couldn't tell me I wouldn't be somewhere, I was going to make it and you couldn't tell me any different. I was obsessed over it.
I just wanted to learn and understand everything." AJ Styles made his WWE debut in 2016, during the Royal Rumble match. Since then, Styles has gone on to cement himself as one of the top stars in the company. The Phenomenal One has faced some of the biggest stars in WWE including John Cena, The Undertaker, and Roman Reigns.
Apparently, in addition to having revealed that he does not want to be a WWE commentator in the future, AJ Styles would have also revealed that as a young man he would have wanted to do everything but the pro-wrestler, with one of the best careers of all time, which for a breath almost never started.
