AJ Styles has a lot of stories to tell and he has plenty of good brothers that he can chat with from all over. The idea of Styles having a podcast seems like the perfect fit, but it just couldn’t work in today’s WWE.
A Couple In with Cody Jinks spoke to AJ Styles about WWE’s Twitch ban. During the conversation, the former WWE Champion revealed something very interesting. He was in the middle of starting up a podcast when that ban came down. Vince McMahon’s edict caused him to pull the plug on that podcast happening.
“Vince said we couldn’t do it anymore, which is understandable. We were taking his product and making money off of it when he’s paying us to do a job. I get it and understand it. There are certain things that played into it. I am a gamer, but as far as Twitch, I had to let it go by the wayside. I was hoping to branch out. I started off playing games on Mixer, which ended up being sold, and I went to Twitch. I was amazed at how huge the community was. It was great. By the time I got to Twitch, it was more or less me talking for two hours rather than playing games. I was literally hoping to do a live podcast. That was the direction I was hoping to go.”
AJ Styles might get back around to having his own podcast someday. We would have likely already had one if Vince McMahon stayed out of WWE Superstars’ third party business.
That ban on Twitch and Cameo caused a fair amount of problems across the company. It turns out that we’re still hearing about things we missed out on even today.
