AJ Styles is the current WWE United States Champion, and he’s one of the top stars on SmackDown Live. AJ has accomplished a lot since he officially joined WWE at the Royal Rumble in 2016, and he’s proved to be a great addition to the roster thanks to the fact that he spent years working on his in-ring skills all over the world.
During a recent interview with the Hindustan Times, AJ was asked if he had to change his style when he joined WWE, and he noted that he didn’t have to change his in-ring style, but he did have to adjust to all the cameras.
“I never changed my style with respect to how my wrestle. The only difference was that WWE has a lot more cameras facing you than the independent circuit, but I think that was just a learning curve that you need to go through and it has really helped me.”
Even though AJ Styles has accomplished a lot in his career, he has no interest in slowing down. The former WWE Champion noted that there’s always room for improvement, and he named Kazuchika Okada as a wrestler who currently inspires him to keep pushing himself.
“Of course I have room for improvement. Look at a talent like Kazuchika Okada; he is one of the best wrestlers in the world and the kid is not even 30. He has won the IWGP championship at such a young age and when you see a talent like that, it inspires you to work harder.”
