The current WWE Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles made one latest appearance on his Twitch stream, last week to discuss some professional wrestling stuffs especially topics from his career. He answer questions from fans, while also playing some video games with them.
Someone asked “The Phenomenal One” about the favorite match of his career. AJ Styles picked one from WWE and one from TNA/Impact Wrestling promotion. From WWE, he picked the TLC 2016 main-event match against Dean Ambrose where he retained the WWE Championship against WWE’s Lunatic Fringe.
That match was a roller-coaster ride for the WWE Universe whereas it’s remembered for one more thing. AJ Styles apparently tore his pants while performing the match. He continued that in that condition that made a joke out of him, four years ago. During the conversation, he pointed out that it was not a wardrobe malfunction, though but rather a chair shot tore his pants, legit.
“Ambrose/Moxley, whatever you want to call him, that TLC match that we had was pretty awesome, where I ripped my pants,” AJ said. “Let me go on to say, also I know I’ve said this before on Mixer but we’ve got some new eyes [on Twitch], it was not a wardrobe malfunction when I got the hole torn in my tights. It was not a wardrobe malfunction, it was literally cut by a chair that it went through.”
From TNA, the longest-reigning WWE Champion in SmackDown history mentioned the X Division match against Rhyno. It was a ‘scaffold’ match that he liked to be a part of.
Moving on into the conversation, one match that AJ Styles is adamant about competing is a one-on-one bout against WWE Hall Of Famer, Edge. To be part of a feud against the Rated R Superstar, he will obviously have to wait until he returns from an injury that occurred at the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever at Backlash 2020 against Randy Orton.
“I’ve got to have a match with Edge before him and I both retire,” AJ stated. “I think that’s something that we both want. I know he tore his tricep, and hopefully it’s a speedy recovery for him. That’s one that I want badly, and I think that he would like to have one as well. It would be great. I’m still looking forward to it, Edge.”
The demand is mutual from Edge’s perspective, as well. Previously the legendary superstar wanted to leave WWE just to compete in this match with AJ Styles who was in TNA, back in 2008. However, that never happened and twelve years later, they’re under the same wrestling banner that makes us believe that the dream bout would go down, someday.
“AJ Styles and Edge has to happen,” Edge said while being vocal about the most technically gifted athlete in today’s WWE. “In 25 years in the same industry, we’ve never touched. How is that possible? Guy like Roman Reigns, man, he’s special. He’s a leader and he needs other leaders, and that’s what I can be.
We felt a little bit of that at the Rumble, too. Seth Rollins has to happen; Kevin Owens, Cesaro, Nakumura, Sami Zayn, Aleister Black for sure, Matt Riddle, WALTER, Tommaso Ciampa, Velveteen Dream. Give them all to me, man.”
