AJ Styles Comments On If The New World Heavyweight Championship Is The Secondary World Title

AJ Styles gets candid with regards to the World Heavyweight Championship’s prestige.

Speaking with New York Post, Styles addressed whether or not he feels that the new championship should be considered secondary to the WWE Undisputed Universal championship.

“Is it a secondary?” Styles said in a Zoom interview. “Well if the Raw championship is held by Roman, the SmackDown championship is held by Roman, then how can you argue that it’s not? We had to make a new championship because Roman holds them all. What happens if he decides to wrestle for the World Heavyweight championship? It is what it is, and we got what we got. If we make the best of it, and if and when Roman does challenge [for it], we beat the brakes off of him, whomever it might be, then we’ll see what title’s secondary.”

“This is what you want to do. This is what you want to be,” Styles said. “This is what you’re trying to get to in your career. I’m not mad at him. I told him, ‘If I could do it, I would, but I’m not Roman Reigns.’ ”
