AJ Styles and Omos won the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania, beating Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston. The match was also Omos' televised in-ring debut in WWE and he impressed despite debuting under so much pressure.
On the latest episode of Corey Graves' After The Bell podcast, AJ Styles opened up about being a mentor to Omos. He also stated how important he felt it was for veterans in the pro wrestling industry to mentor up-and-coming stars:
"I think that’s a job that most of us should have after 20 years of being in, you know, the business just to help the younger talent, as guys like the older talent, has helped me. So much. I mean, we can go back – Jerry Lynn, Christopher Daniels, John Cena. I know it sounds crazy for me to say John Cena, but I’ve learned so much from that guy, it’s only right that I pass down what knowledge I’ve had to Omos who can and I think he will be a huge superstar in the WWE," Styles explained.
