TNA star A.J. Styles lists wrestlers he'd like to see in TNA, comments on working with Hulk Hogan, his Bound For Glory main event with Bully Ray, and his character change
Oct 20, 2013 - 02:28 PM


Sunday Morning on The Locker Room with A.J. Styles
Host: Ryan Rider
Interview conducted for TSN.ca/montreal/


Suggestions for TNA: "They’re overlooking the guys who deserve a shot at the world title, who have the talent to be a world champion. They don’t have to come from that other place [WWE], they can come from the independents. But we have to leave the door open for young guys to come in and get a chance. Let them be their own guy instead of a cookie cutter like they get at that other place. From the independents, Delirious has been one of my favorites for a long time. I’d like to see him signed. I also miss Alex Shelley. He and [Chris] Sabin, as the Motor City Machine Guns were a great tag team. I would love to see him back."

His personality change in the past year: "I think it’s a personality that everyone has. You reach a breaking point, you push the right buttons, and you see this guy come out that you never knew you had in you. I got pushed over the ledge and it turned me on, turned me into this new guy. A little more aggressive and a lot more drive."

Thoughts on working with Hulk Hogan: "[Hulk] Hogan can open up doors that we normally wouldn’t be able to open without that. He adds experience and it’s been an experience working for him."

His match with Bully Ray at Bound for Glory: "I’m going to leave it all out in the ring. These people paid their hard earned money to see two people beat the crap out of each other in the ring. Be ready to be entertained and maybe even have your breath taken away. Hard-hitting and a match that you’re going to remember. I have to be more focused than ever. Bully Ray will have to kill me if he wants to beat me. And I just don’t think that’s going to happen."
