During a recent interview with Guide Live, AJ Styles discussed Sting influencing his career, who he wants to face in WWE and more. Here are some highlights:

On how Sting influenced his career: “Well he definitely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. It’s been a long time coming. Very proud to call him a friend, and to see him in the Hall of Fame. If you watch a lot of my stuff you’ll know how much impact he’s had on my career. I have the clothesline in the corner, but it’s really the Stinger Splash. I do the Scorpion Death Drop – you know, I put a back flip into it, but it’s still the Scorpion Death Drop. So, he had a lot of influence on my career. I really liked Sting a lot growing up. I always thought of him as like a superhero wearing the paint. Then, he switched over to this ‘dark Sting’ which is one of my favorites, the crow Sting, if you will. He was one of my favorites for a long time, and he still is. He’s one of my favorite guys in this business.”

On getting to perform at Wrestlemania: “It’s awesome. I can’t say enough great things about the experience I’ve had here in the WWE, and to hopefully get the opportunity to wrestle at WrestleMania is unbelievable because I never thought this would happen. You know, I have the WWE Network, I’ve watched all these moments, and felt that I may never have it. But now, a couple weeks away, it’s a big deal. It really is. I can’t put into words how big a deal it is for me. It’s a milestone in my career that I never thought I’d get the opportunity to cover.”

On who else in WWE he wants to face: “I want that whole roster. I want to get in there with every one of them, and just have great matches with all of them because it’d be very easy to do. There’s different wrestlers from the bigger guys to Kalisto, who’s one of the smallest, but at the same time I know it’d be fun to get in there with him, as well. Then again, I want to get in there with the Big Show.”

Of all the performers he could have mentioned...

Seth Rollins
Sami Zayn
Finn Balor
Cesaro
Dean Ambrose
Brock Lesnar
etc...

And he goes with the fucking Big Show.

Goddamn it, AJ.

I can see AJ carry Big Show to 4-star match.

Thinking he can hang with the Big Show :chlol

Someone like Balor would be the perfect fit for him. It's basically a mirror match.

You guys seem confused. He only mentioned Kalisto and Big Show because they are the smallest/biggest wrestlers. He is essentially saying he wants to fight them and everyone in between.

It doesn't mean he wants to fight Big Show over guys like Rollins, Neville, Cesaro, Balor, etc.

I think Rollins/Styles is going to be an awesome match. I'd much rather watch those two feuding over the WWE title than any combination of Roman Reigns.

Another thematic last-stars-of-WCW angle-- I can dig that, but can we get the IC or US title involved in AJ's next feud?
