AJ Styles spoke with Ryan Rider on “The Locker Room’ show on TSN 690AM in Montreal about talents he feels TNA should sign to the company that are outside of WWE.
“They’re overlooking the guys who deserve a shot at the world title, who have the talent to be a World Champion. They don’t have to come from that other place [WWE], they can come from the independents. But we have to leave the door open for young guys to come in and get a chance. Let them be their own guy instead of a cookie cutter like they get at that other place. From the independents, Delirious has been one of my favorites for a long time. I’d like to see him signed. I also miss Alex Shelley. He and [Chris] Sabin, as the Motor City Machine Guns were a great tag team. I would love to see him back.”
AJ Styles also discussed his match against Bully Ray at tonight’s Bound for Glory pay-per-view event.
“I’m going to leave it all out in the ring. These people paid their hard earned money to see two people beat the crap out of each other in the ring. Be ready to be entertained and maybe even have your breath taken away. Hard-hitting and a match that you’re going to remember. I have to be more focused than ever. Bully Ray will have to kill me if he wants to beat me. And I just don’t think that’s going to happen.
