• What Did Vince McMahon Say To AJ Styles After His First WWE Match?
Former WWE Champion AJ Styles was recently interviewed on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, where he revealed what Vince McMahon told him after his first match with the company in 2016.
Here’s what Styles said:
“My first match that I was in, not necessarily the Rumble but was in, Vince said, ‘I’ve got a lot of guys that can do what you do’, he said he needed a pitbull.
That’s what I’ve always been, okay, I know this guy. He allowed me to be AJ Styles, I didn’t have to change anything about myself, how I worked. He basically just gave me permission to be the guy that I’ve always been.”
AJ Styles & his bodyguard Omos are currently the RAW Tag Team Champions.
