AJ Styles was recently interviewed by IGN.com. Below are some highlights.

On TNA’s Product: “The wrestling is so different from WWE. I just believe that the best athletes in wrestling work for TNA. When you watch our matches you can see that. We actually bring wrestling, and we bring that wrestling to a different level that WWE isn’t able to do. Just the caliber of guys that we have at TNA is just unbelievable, and when you put that with unbelievable athletes, it’s a great product.”

On Batista’s Criticism of Styles’ Work: “In defense of Batista, I don’t believe it until I’ve heard people say it, and I’ve heard through the grapevine that he didn’t even say any of that stuff. So it’s almost like us against the media. They want it to be hot between the two companies, and it is because that’s our competition, but in that same line, I don’t want to see anybody get hurt, even if they work for the competition. It gets crazy like that. But do I think WWE fears us? Absolutely, that’s why they brought back ECW. They’re afraid and they should be. We’re growing at a super fast rate, and that’s something to be scared of.”

On The Possibility of Kurt Angle Coming to TNA: “Time will tell. Who knows? I would definitely love to wrestle Kurt and we’d love to have him in TNA. Time will tell, man, your guess is as good as mine.”

On TNA’s Upcoming Video Game: “I think that it’s good for everyone. TNA is a growing company and Midway is going to take advantage of that by putting out a great game. It’s almost like we’re going to piggyback off of each other. Publicity-wise, it will be great for everybody, and in the fans eyes, seeing is believing. Maybe you didn’t know someone could do a flipping piledriver like The Canadian Destroyer until you see it in the game, then you’re going to want to see how it looks in real life. It’s such a huge thing for both companies.”
