AJ Styles is the guest on the latest episode of "Talk is Jericho" with Chris Jericho.
Jericho asked if Styles going to NXT was an option and AJ said he hated to admit it but he was "very relieved" when he learned he wouldn't have to work developmental. He did say he would have made the best of it and proven himself as part of NXT, and he made it clear that he wasn't taking anything away from anyone in NXT. He also mentioned how WWE contracts come with opportunities you don't get elsewhere, noting that he could work as a trainer or an agent once his in-ring career is over.
Regarding fellow former New Japan Pro Wrestling stars Shinsuke Nakamura, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson coming to WWE, Styles implied that Anderson and Gallows are on their way. He said, "Those guys are finishing up, Nakamura's on his way."
