AJ Styles

As seen below, this week’s sitdown interview with Michael Cole features AJ Styles. Below are highlights:

* Styles says he was tired of people calling him a liar but now he doesn’t care because no one understands the relationship he has with Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. He talks about having each others backs in Japan and says nothing is going to change in WWE. AJ says everyone has friends they know aren’t the best people but he will forever have their back, no matter what

* Cole brings up Gallows and Anderson possibly helping AJ win the match against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns at Extreme Rules. Styles has said he will beat Reigns on his own and he doesn’t need Gallows and Anderson but they will be watching for when The Usos try to interfere. Cole asks if Styles will take the pin on Reigns if he’s laid out by Gallows and Anderson. Styles says he will take advantage of the situation and always has. Styles tells Reigns to prove The Family is stronger than The Club. He’s not telling Gallows and Anderson to run out but it’s Extreme Rules and they can do anything, so whatever happens, happens

* Cole says AJ seems different than when he first came to WWE and asks why. Styles says there’s a lot of passion that goes into what he does and a lot of people don’t understand what it’s like in his position. AJ says he’s been a champion everywhere he went, except WWE, but now he has the chance. Passion, dedication, pride and money. AJ says he has to take care of his family, that’s most important, and when you have the WWE World Title, money and opportunity come with it. AJ wants to be successful and to him, that’s taking care of his family

* Cole asks if AJ is ready to cross the line again and enter the world of extreme against Reigns. AJ says he will do anything and everything it takes to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion
