Tuesday, 29 April 2014 12:00
A.J. Styles was a guest on Live Audio Wrestling this past Sunday night discussing the upcoming ROH / NJPW Global Wars show coming up on May 10th in Toronto. The full interview is up on the site atÂ http://fightnetwork.com/news/47051:interview-a.j.-styles/ as well as on iTunes. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Working the G-1 Climax:
The G-1 tournament is stuff you donâ€™t wanna miss. Itâ€™s the best talent coming together and putting one-on-one matches together. Iâ€™m expecting nothing but great things out of that. Itâ€™s stuff like that, being in this tournament, that makes me feel like I am wanted, and people do want to see AJ Styles wrestle. For a second there when I left TNA, it didnâ€™t seem like TNA wanted me very much. Going back to the indies, New Japan especially, and Ring of Honor, it just goes to show that thereâ€™s something Iâ€™ve gotta prove, and I expect to do a lot of that in the tournament.
Whether he can work the ROH June PPV or not:
It doesnâ€™t look good. I would hate to be scheduled for a match, and then have a flight be delayed and the next thing you know Iâ€™m not making it. I would assume that when Iâ€™m over in Japan itâ€™s a long flight, and itâ€™s some quality matches. I want to be in tip top shape when I wrestle for New Japan and when I wrestle for Ring of Honor.
Drawing more than some TNA house shows:
I donâ€™t quite understand why this is, but almost every show Iâ€™ve been at has drawn that kind of number. Iâ€™m not saying itâ€™s me, Iâ€™m saying the promoters know what theyâ€™re doing. Thatâ€™s whatâ€™s so crazy about this, Iâ€™m having so much fun and Iâ€™m going, wow, for somebody to say that I wasnâ€™t worth the money, there sure are a lot of people showing up at these independent shows to see exactly what I do. Itâ€™s confusing, to say the least, but Iâ€™m very excited about the fact that Iâ€™m able to work in front of all these people and Iâ€™m able to give them their moneyâ€™s worth.
