WhatCulture recently interviewed AJ Styles at the 5* Wrestling event in Newcastle, England in which he was asked if he would be open to working an event on January 24th, which happens to be the night of the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view - He replied, simply with "sure."
Styles was also asked which opponents he might want to work with if he joins NXT or WWE. He replied:
"You ask that question already knowing the answer. That's funny, you know... Finn Balor is one most people would like to see me wrestle. Prince Devitt if you will, from New Japan Pro Wrestling. And the guy's very talented. Samoa Joe's in NXT, I would do that all over again. There's definitely up and coming guys I'd love to work with but there's also guys I haven't worked with in TNA and WWE. There's a lot of guys I haven't worked with. Hopefully I'll get to wrestle them before its over. Great things are happening, crazy things in my life. I have a 1 year old daughter... I've got to add another tattoo and I don't have a place to put it. It's the crazy life of AJ Styles but it's a good one."
When asked what's next for AJ Styles, he said,
"I love what I do. I'm going to do what I do, best I think. I'm definitely not an artist but I can paint with the wrestling brush. I think I got some kind of thing going on with that. And I'm going to keep doing that as long as I can. Keep in mind, still gonna be able to walk away from this business. Will I have surgeries? Of course I will because I'm going to get old and I've hurt myself but that's just the nature of the beast. I wouldn't change a thing."
