AJ Styles On How WWE Almost Changed His Name

WWE Champion AJ Styles has had a tremendous career in WWE since his arrival in the Royal Rumble a couple of years ago. One can’t imagine him without his name. But apparently, his name was almost changed, just like many others before him.

AJ recently spoke to ESPN on this issue and this is what he had to say:

”When Triple H and I were talking, he said: ‘I don’t know if we’ll be able to keep your name.’ I said: ‘That’s fine, I’ll be any name you want me to be called, except I do have this huge AJ tattoo on my side so that might be a problem.”

“I think it worked out for the best because we weren’t taken and being changed into something else. We were the same characters that they saw from different companies and that they were familiar with and people were already invested in. I think that was a good move by WWE.”

We are glad AJ kept the name that he has been working with for his entire career.
