• “I’m just not as good as him” – AJ Styles Praises WWE Star’s Heel Work
During an appearance on the Out Of Character podcast, AJ Styles praised former WWE Champion The Miz and his heel work on TV.
Styles went on to claim that his own heel work doesn’t match The Miz’s heel work.
Below is what the Phenomenal One said:
“To me, there’s no one who understands what a heel is supposed to be like better than The Miz.
That’s what I wanted to be. I’m just not as good as him. That’s what I wanna be, and that’s what heels should wanna be, they should not wanna be liked. They should wanna be spit on and all this stuff.
That’s what we should strive for because with that emotion that you bring as a heel, it just makes whoever you’re working that much better.
When you got a heel and you got a babyface, it’s easy. When you got a great storyline, it’s easy, everything’s gonna work out.”
Styles will face Damian Priest for the United States Championship on next week’s RAW.
