AJ Styles is touted as one of the best pro wrestlers by both fans and his peers alike. He is getting older and also wiser with age, which has been reflected in his in-ring capabilities. That said, it appears that he doesn’t want his career to end the way Edge’s did initially.

The Phenomenal One has accomplished a lot in his WWE career over the last seven years and it is a guarantee that he will be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame once he hangs up his boots.

For those who don’t remember, Edge had to retire prematurely from in-ring competition due to a career-ending neck injury in 2011. It wouldn’t be until the 2020 Royal Rumble that Edge finally returned as an in-ring competitor.

While speaking on his My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast, AJ Styles talked about what is left for him in his pro wrestling career. Styles simply stated that he wants to end his career on his own terms and not have it prematurely end as Edge’s did back in 2011.


“I would think that going out the way that you want to and not going out the way you have to, that’s all I wanna do. I just wanna be able to finish and go out the way that I want to. I know that’s a hard thing ’cause injuries are the reason for a lot of retirements. For Edge, his first one, he retired because he thought his career was over, and that’s the way it is for a lot of us in what we do. So I am just hoping to finish. I wanna finish, and I wanna finish my way and not due to injury.”

AJ Styles will also be okay after his pro wrestling career ends. He even has final opponent in mind for his retirement match. We’ll have to see when The Phenomenal One will finally end his pro wrestling career for good.
