Ahead of facing Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions 2023, AJ Styles was in conversation with Alex McCarthy of the “Inside The Ropes” podcast for a brief chat.
Discussing how it feels to be back in World Title contention, Styles said,
“I feel the same as you. It’s about time I’m back in the heavyweight title picture. Unfortunately, I’m up against Seth Rollins, who’s probably one of the best. I said it a long time ago that he’s gonna be great, and nothing has changed. He’s still one of the best, no doubt about it, so we’ll see what happens.”
AJ recently returned from injury and also shared how being in two matches on the same night on his in-ring return was “a bit worrisome.”
“Oh, you’re gonna be in two matches your first time back in the ring with WWE. Oh, that’s great, because that’s where I wanted to be. Who knows where my cardio is at this point? It’s a bit worrisome, but I made it through, and now for my first biggest match in the WWE [since I returned], it’s gonna be against Seth Rollins in Jeddah. So yeah, no pressure.”
