Back in March, AJ Styles revealed that, in addition to his family expanding with an adorable new puppy, he had signed a new contract with WWE. Now, in an interview with Newsweek, he reveals that deal will be his last:
“I can tell you that this contract that I’ve signed is my last. This is the perfect place for me to be. It’s family-oriented, I have no problem taking my family to the shows. It’s a PG product, which I enjoy. I’m in the best place I can be for my career.”
Styles is 41-years-old and has been one hell of a career in professional wrestling. He is, quite possibly, one of the best wrestlers in the history of the industry, at least as far as his work in the ring. He’s also had one hell of a run in WWE, better than anyone could have expected when he signed a few years ago.
What else is left to do?
“Being the Universal Champion, obviously. There’s a lot of things I want to do and they don’t involve having every belt I can. That’s not what it is. I want to be a household name. I want them to know that when they hear my name they think WWE or when they hear WWE they think AJ Styles. I want to be entertaining and take it to the next level. I want to make people watching from home laugh out loud. There’s a lot of things I want to do and they don’t always revolve around championships. Just to go out there and entertain.”
There you have it.
