• AJ Styles Names His Best Friends In WWE, Best Sellers & Next Possible Intercontinental Champion
While speaking on his Twitch stream, Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles named his best friends in WWE, wrestlers who he thinks are some of the best sellers in pro-wrestling and the next possible Intercontinental Champion.
Below are the highlights:
On his closest friends in WWE:
“I think that out of everyone – he’s on the injured list right now, but still, probably the guy I’ve known the longest is Xavier Woods/Austin Creed. I’m trying to think who else would be in there. Like, Samoa Joe would be my closest on RAW.”
On Dolph Ziggler:
“I love Ziggler, man. He is awesome. I think that when it comes to selling, man, he is one of the best. He really is. I put him right up there with Jeff Hardy. Jeff Hardy is one of the best too.”
On opponents who could win the Intercontinental Title:
“There are a couple of guys that I think would do well with the Intercontinental Championship. I would love for them to get the opportunity, but I think that everything comes at the right time. Like, the story and everything else has to go with it. I think there’s a lot of people thinking Big E might be up there. He might be that guy, I don’t know.”
