With AJ Styles by his side, Omos is learning from one of the best wrestlers in the world.
In a recent appearance on WWE After The Bell, Styles explained why he thinks it’s right that he’s giving back to the next generation by helping Omos. He also praised the big man and emphasized that he believes Omos has a lot of potential.
“I think that’s a job that most of us should have after 20 years of being in the business, just to help the younger talent, as the older talent has helped me,” said Styles. “We can go back, Jerry Lynn, Christopher Daniels, John Cena, I know it sounds crazy for me to say John Cena, but I’ve learned so much from that guy. It’s only right that I pass down what knowledge I’ve had to Omos, who can and I think will be, a huge Superstar in WWE.”
Though Styles is often viewed as a singles wrestler, he has been thriving in his tag team with Omos. In the interview, he explained that he’s excited about having the opportunity to face WWE’s best duos.
“That’s the best thing about it, is that I get to be in the ring with other Superstars,” said Styles. “I was kinda in a tag team when The O.C. and whatnot, so there’s a little bit of experience there. But now, being the RAW Tag Team Champions and having to step in the ring with the Viking Raiders, who knows who else? New Day, maybe RK-Bro down the line, that’s exciting.”
As a veteran who has competed throughout the world, Styles has practically done it all. Even though he’s only been in WWE for five years, he’s already a Grand Slam Champion. Naturally, it’s fair to wonder what keeps “The Phenomenal One” going. When asked, Styles stated that he’s driven by the pride he takes in his craft.
“A little bit of ego and pride has a lot to do with it,” Styles explained. “I enjoy what I do in the ring. Now granted, there’s gonna be times, just like every one of us, like, ‘Ah, I don’t want to go to work today.’ But I have the best job in the world, so I have to be positive. Like hey, man, you get to go and work for the WWE. That’s a great thing.
“Yeah, I got a lot of pride in what I do, especially when I step between those ropes,” Styles said.” It’s just something else that drives me, I can’t explain it, really. But it’s just all or nothing with me.”
