SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
A.J. Styles spoke to SoloWrestling.com about facing Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania, the prospects of facing Daniel Bryan, possibly moving to Raw, and whether he’d like to join The Club. The following are those quotes.
•Should his match be the last match at WrestleMania?: “I was very excited that Shinsuke won the Royal Rumble and I had to make sure I held onto the championship so he and I could get in the ring one on one and give the WWE Universe what they wanted to see. As far as the main event goes, I can tell you what match is going to steal the show. You can either put Shinsuke and A.J. Styles last or you can just have that be the match people are going to remember. We are going to tear the house down. That’s what we do. We have the talent to be able to do that. And I think, that’s what people are expecting. Whether it is the main event, it will be the main event match.
•Will Daniel Bryan be cleared by WWE and would you like to face him if he is? “I would love for Daniel Bryan to be cleared, but that’s not up to me, that’s up to WWE. If ever there is an opportunity for him and me to get in the ring together, I think it would be an unbelievable match. It’d be fun.
•Would you like t be part of The Club with Finn Balor and Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows? “I think it’d be cool if we were all in The Club together, but who knows if that will ever happen. It would definitely be fun. As far as moving to Raw, I don’t plan on losing to Shinsuke Nakamura and I can’t imagine they’d make the champ move to Raw.”
