TNA star AJ Styles talks the TNA youth movement, Bobby Roode vs. James Storm, Overtaking WWE, and more
This week, IN THE ROOM on WEXP 1600 AM Philly and www.thebradyhicks.com, Brady Hicks welcomed TNA star AJ Styles to talk all about the progress TNA has been making, as well as to hype his appearance at Lockdown this past Sunday night in Nashville. Among the highlights:
-On TNA's youth movement, as it stands: They're ... WE are definitely in a better place. If we're making new stars, that's what we need to do. We gotta build that foundation, and it starts by making new stars. You can't rely on Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy and guys like that who have been around for awhile .... or even AJ Styles for that matter. You have to continue to build new stars to rely on and to keep it fresh.
-The Development of Bobby Roode and James Storm: I gotta tell you, when those two broke up as a tag team I thought, 'Oh man, that's the worst thing that could ever happen to tag team wrestling.' Literally these guys were the best in the world as a tag team ... It's crazy what has happened with them over time. I can't say that I don't want to see this match happen because I do.
-On TNA Overtaking WWE: It's not going to happen overnight. We don't have the money that the other company has. We just have to take it slow ...When we move to0 fast, that's how you destroy a company.
All that, plus AJ's thoughts on competing in the steel cage each year at Lockdown, being a main-event player once again, taking Impact live once again, and on the road, what Fortune did for each member's career, getting to compete each week against his best friends in the business, and so much more!
