• WWE Hall Of Famer Thinks AJ Styles Is Starting To Creep Up On The List Of The Greatest Superstars Of All Time
During a recent edition of his podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle talked about teaming up with AJ Styles and winning the TNA World Tag Team Championship.
Angle had major praise for The Phenomenal One. Below is what he said:
“AJ was incredible, we had very different styles and I think that’s why we had great chemistry.
We were both seasoned wrestlers, AJ knew psychology really well, he was a much better athlete than I was. Stuff that I could never do, AJ was very special.
I think the writers and the reason was the TNA World Championship, AJ and I were hovering around that for a long time. We were both battling for it, going back and forth and the writers wanted to give other wrestlers a stab at the TNA World Championship. So they decided to put AJ and me together and go for the Tag Team Titles and stay away from the TNA World Heavyweight Title for the time being.
I just think that AJ was one of the best. I’d put him up there with Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho, I recently talked about Jericho being the best of all time considering how long his career’s been and what he’s been able to do in AEW up until now.
Shawn Michaels will always be one of the greatest and AJ is starting to creep up there. He’s showing a lot of promise with his characters so he’s not just a wrestler, he’s got the whole ball of wax, and this kid’s really special.”
