It’s been seven years since AJ Styles’ entrance at the Royal Rumble in January 2016 drove the WWE Universe into a frenzy. Styles is now one of several Grand Slam Champions, having won the WWE Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship, and Tag Team Championship in that time. However, for many superstars, nothing beats their first WrestleMania.

Kevin Nash recalled offering Styles some advice before his bout against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 32 on the latest episode of Kliq This. “I remember AJ’s first WrestleMania,” Nash said before really opening up about what he told Styles.

He was just like ‘F*** man, I just want to get through this’ because they ran him ragged. I said no, I said that’s what they do, they rob you of these moments. I said cherish this because one day you’re going to be my age knowing that you’re never going to get out there again, and you’ll wish to God that you savored this moment that you have right now.

Styles went on to lose to Jericho that April night, but he has clearly found incredible success within the WWE, so much so that “The Phenomenal One” wants to stay for WWE for as long as they will have him. However, it seems that Nash’s advice was ignored at the time. “He said, ‘Well, go f*** yourself,'” Nash recalled while laughing. 


I said okay, I was just trying to help.

Despite his numerous separate tenure with WWE, Nash only wrestled at two WrestleManias, 11 and 12. Styles has so far competed on seven WrestleMania cards. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
