AJ Styles is one of the top stars of WWE. He is 41 years old, which means he spent the majority of his career outside of WWE. From Ring of Honor, to TNA, to New Japan Pro Wrestling and indies in between. At one time AJ was the best wrestler never signed tin WWE.
Styles recently sat down with Newsweek and was asked about the rise of the independent scene and if competition is good for WWE.
As far as the indies and whatnot, I don’t think they should ever be competitive with the WWE. They should compete with themselves to make sure they get better everyday because there’s no competition, if you want me to be honest. WWE is globally huge. It’s unbelievable to know how big the WWE is. People don’t understand it.Newsweek
If you want to succeed, don’t compete. Be something different, be the alternative. There’s a lot of people that have a good chance, but competition is always a great thing. I hope any company does well so they can be that competition. Competition will always make a better product.
Out of the many people to speak on this subject, there aren’t many more qualified than AJ Styles. This is coming from a man who has been affiliated with “the number two” wrestling promotion in the United States and in the world.
