AJ Styles Responds To John Cena's Post; Talks WWE Possiblities, WWE Not Picking Him Up From WCW

Former IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles talked to The Tag Rope during his recent trip overseas to the UK. During the interview, he spoke about the possibility of heading to WWE.

"I'm always going to do what's best for my family. That's my first priority, my job is to take care of them, any way that I can," Styles said.

Styles also said that WWE not picking him up after WCW was bought out was a blessing in disguise, because he wasn't ready to be in either company at the time.

"It was a little depressing, not only that [WCW] went out of business, but the fact that WWE did not pick me up," Styles said of WCW going out of business. "But in retrospect, it was the best thing that ever happened to me because I wasn't ready to be in WCW and I wasn't ready to be in WWF at the time. It was great getting back onto those indies and really learning. I learned so much going to Ring of Honor, it was a big learning curve for me at the beginning because everything was different, things were done different in the North East than they were in the South East. But it was a great thing that happened to me, it was the best thing that could've happened."
