While appearing on Inside the Ropes, AJ Styles was asked about the rumors of him possibly jumping ship to the RAW-brand during the Superstar Shakeup. Styles admits that he’s glad those rumors were wrong because he doesn’t think it’s right for people to know exactly what’s happening.
“As far as the Shakeup goes, I had no idea what was going on, I heard rumors as well, and I’m glad that they were wrong. Because, I hate when people know what’s going on in our business, it should be our business to surprise you, not your business for someone else to read on the internet. That actually, upsets me that some people know – whoever it is – in the office of WWE, can’t keep their mouth shut. But it’s fun for you guys to speculate and why ‘they need to be on Raw’ or ‘they need to be on SmackDown.’ That’s fun. And to guess, and then to not know- because WWE didn’t know until the last minute who was going where and I have no problem with that, because they [WWE] don’t know, neither does the internet. I think it [had] some surprises and that is a good thing.”
Styles also talked about which WWE Superstars on the RAW-brand that he would like to face that he has not gotten a chance to yet.
“There’s a lot of guys, I mean I haven’t been in the ring with Seth Rollins. WWE hasn’t seen Samoa Joe and AJ Styles. Finn Balor.”
