WWE Superstar AJ Styles recently spoke with 97.9/105.5 KISS FM’s KISS KREW about working with Chris Jericho early in his WWE run, knocking The Miz’s tooth out and more. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On Chris Jericho being the perfect opponent for his WWE debut:
“I mean, listen, Chris Jericho is a future legend. There’s no doubt about that. He’s going to be a [WWE] Hall Of Famer. There’s no doubt about that. He really went the same path that I have, with Japan. He wrestled in the [United] States, went to Japan. I mean, him and I are very similar. And the fact that I got the opportunity to be in the ring with him as soon as I started in the WWE, I mean, you couldn’t ask for a better opponent.”
On knocking out The Miz’s tooth early in his WWE run and his thoughts on The Miz in general:
“You would have [thought] that, but I think I got applauded, actually, for knocking out The Miz’s tooth. Let me tell you something, Miz is one of the toughest cats I’ve ever been in the ring with. He may not come across that way, but he is. He’s one tough dude and you’ve got to respect a guy for hanging in there after getting his tooth knocked out.”
