Interview: AJ Styles on whether WrestleMania 34 is the biggest match of his career, bringing the best out of Lesnar, and Jericho in NJPW
We got the chance to briefly catch up with The Phenomenal WWE Champion
In WWE's latest conference call, we at Sportskeeda were able to briefly chat with none other than the WWE Champion himself - The Phenomenal AJ Styles. He talked about WrestleMania 34 and more. Check it out below:
Sportskeeda: You've been in 2 WrestleManias so far, but this looks to be the biggest one yet. Do you consider this to be the biggest match of your career, and what have you learnt the most from the past two WrestleMania experiences?
AJ Styles: I do think this is the biggest match of my career. I think this is the match that most people want to see. We're doing it at WrestleMania, so it doesn't get much bigger than that.
I've learned that it's huge, for one. Thousands of thousands of people are at a show. Just take it all in. Don't rush to the ring. I don't do a lot of things right, but my first WrestleMania, I took it all in and I think that's the one thing, I'm, going to do every time I get the opportunity. It's just not to rush to the ring, but just to take it all in and enjoy the ride.
SK: What was it like working a physical style match-up with Brock Lesnar? How do you feel you were able to bring out the best performance of his career in many years?
AJ: I think that it's something he's always capable of. It's all up to him if he wants to do it. I think he and I put on a spectacular match and it was a good opportunity for me to be in the ring with Brock Lesnar. It was an exciting match, one that one kind of expected but at the same time didn't know what to expect. I think it was a great match and I'm very proud of that match.
SK: What are your thoughts on Chris Jericho's venture into NJPW?
AJ: Well I think that Jericho gets to do what he wants. He's earned the right to do what he wants to do. This is sports entertainment, so if he wants to go to Japan he can do that, and if he wants to play in his band, he can do that. He's definitely earned the right and he's the definitely the superstar who can do all of that.
