Every wrestling fan knows that storylines get taken to another level when WWE Superstars make them personal. AJ Styles’ recent feud with Samoa Joe is a great example of a personal storyline, as Joe involved AJ’s family in their rivalry.
The former WWE Champion recently spoke to Wrestlezone Radio about his family’s reaction to the feud, and he said that at this point it’s not a big deal to them.
“First and foremost—this is all they’ve ever known that [I have] done. They are quite used to it, and used to what goes on. They know that this is entertainment, they get it, it’s not a big deal to them. You’d think that they go to school bragging, but they couldn’t care less about their Dad being a pro wrestler. [Laughs] The challenges aren’t the storylines, the challenges are not being there when they need you the most. As they get older, their bodies are changing, there’s school stuff and having those sit-downs with them; it’s very important. I want to make sure I’m that Dad and take the time to make sure that they know that I love them, and they can come to me with anything.”
Styles has accomplished a lot since joining WWE back in 2016, but he also noted that he feels there’s one more level he needs to reach.
“I feel like there’s one more level that I need to reach before I really feel like this ‘WWE Superstar’ and that’s really made a difference in this business. I’m not sure how I’m going to get there, but I’m going to continue to work hard and see what happens next.”
