AJ Styles has had quite the run with WWE since he joined the company in 2016. So far he’s won the WWE Championship twice, and he’s also worked with some of the biggest names in the company.
Last year at WrestleMania The Phenomenal One faced off against The Undertaker in the first ever Boneyard Match, and AJ Styles has made it clear that Triple H is at the top of his list of dream opponents.
During a recent media call for NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver Triple H was asked about AJ Styles “pestering” him for a match, and he noted that he’s open to the idea under the right circumstances.
“I’ve said this before, but getting ready for WrestleMania is a different thing, and the older you get, the harder it gets. Doing this once a year or once every couple of years, especially now, is not an easy task. You try to stay in the best shape you can, but that’s not ‘WrestleMania shape’ and it’s a different thing. When he first came to me, I said, ‘AJ, I’m not going to tell you no. Personally, I’d love to work with you and at this point, you can carry me to something.’ So, I’d love it.
“The personal side of it, the performer side of it, I would love nothing more, but the reality is—I’m not going to have the bandwidth or availability schedule-wise to be able to pull that off. He would come to me every week or every other week when I would see him and say, ‘How’s that bandwidth coming? You going to be able to make this happen?’ I’d say I’m not, but I’m flattered by that—I really am—and I’m humbled by it. I wish I had the bandwidth to do it, and I’m not saying I won’t be able to do it in the coming year, if it’s right and everyone believes it should be done.”
