AJ Styles recently spoke with DJ Brando of U-Rock 99.1. Here are some highlights from the interview.
On what’s it like to be a wrestler for a living: “It’s having one of the coolest jobs ever. I mean, you actually get to go to work and enjoy what you are doing. Not a lot of people can say that. I’m blessed.”
On being TNA’s first ever grand slam champion: “I’ve won every belt except for the women’s title obviously. It’s quite an accomplishment and it just goes to show you that hard work does pay off. It’s really cool to say I’m the first guy to do that.”
How he gets mentally focused for a match: “I just focus and start to think about what is going on. There are times when you get so nervous, you start getting those butterflies. It’s a good thing for me anyway, I love getting those butterflies and being excited to go out there and put on a great show. I wish i could really tell you what exactly goes through my mind.”
