AJ Styles is currently one of the most featured Superstars on WWE RAW. With the towering Omos by his side, The Phenomenal One has defeated Elias, Drew Gulak, Ricochet, and R-Truth in recent weeks.
Speaking to SK Wrestling’s Lee Walker, Russo made it clear that he does not enjoy watching AJ Styles’ WWE character. He thinks McMahon and Prichard – two men who Russo worked with in the late 1990s – are making the two-time WWE Champion look bad.
“Bro, I just see a cartoon character on that show. I see them because I know how Vince and Bruce work. I see them mocking him, I see them looking at him as that southern guy that’s an absolute idiot, when the reality of it is AJ is far from an idiot.”

Vince Russo "hates" how WWE books AJ Styles
Vince Russo mentioned that WWE could use AJ Styles’ upbringing as part of his WWE character’s storyline. AJ Styles grew up in a trailer park and often got into trouble.
“There is so much there but no, bro, they’ve got to make him come out and make him look like an absolute joke. That’s my opinion, bro. AJ may love the way he’s being booked. I don’t know, I have not spoken to AJ in many, many years. I hate the way he’s being booked.”
AJ Styles is set to participate in Sunday’s 30-man WWE Royal Rumble match.
