AJ Styles was recently interviewed by GuideLive.com to talk about Wrestlemania. Styles also talked about working with Chris Jericho and who else he would like to wrestle on the roster. You can see highlights below:

 

On Wrestlemania:

It’s awesome. I can’t say enough great things about the experience I’ve had here in the WWE, and to hopefully get the opportunity to wrestle at WrestleMania is unbelievable because I never thought this would happen. You know, I have the WWE Network, I’ve watched all these moments, and felt that I may never have it. But now, a couple weeks away, it’s a big deal. It really is. I can’t put into words how big a deal it is for me. It’s a milestone in my career that I never thought I’d get the opportunity to cover.

Career in Wrestling:

As far as I was concerned, I was going to be a pro football player, basketball player, baseball player, something like that. It never really got in my head that I was going to be doing wrestling.

It was kind of just one of those things – me and my little brother, we beat up the stuffed animals just like most boys do, jumping off the dresser giving them elbow drops – I did all that. But it wasn’t something where I thought I’m going to be a pro wrestler when I grew up. It just kind of happened, as crazy as that sounds.

When wrestling got so big back in ’96, ’98 I really started watching a lot, as did everyone. Told a couple guys who were very involved with watching pro wrestling that if they ever found a place to train – because they were looking – that I’d go with them. They found a place about 20 minutes from the house – I went. Lo and behold, 17 years later I’m talking to you.

On Working with Jericho:

Don’t know. Wasn’t really sure how it was going to work out – I knew nothing. I just wanted to come in, and have great matches and put on a great show. They never said who exactly I’d be working with. So, it was a pleasant surprise to know that I’d be working with Jericho.
