Styles also shed light on the events that led to his memorable WWE debut at the 2016 Royal Rumble PPV. The Phenomenal One interestingly said that he was 'terrified' before making his WWE debut, and went on to explain the reason behind his fear.
I was terrified. We went over the match, and they took me out of the trailer where they were hiding me, and I saw Road Dogg and I didn't want to let him go. I'm in someone else's house. It's their home. I'm a guest. I don't live there yet. I didn't know until literally days before, I didn't know. I don't think many people knew. It was huge for me and intimidating. I'm a 38-year-old man coming to the WWE for the first time, it's intimidating.
