AJ Styles On How Close It Was For A Dream Match With Shawn Michaels

WWE star AJ Styles recently spoke with Inside The Ropes on a number of topics including his dream match with WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels and how close it was to actually happen.

Styles said, “I remember walking up, it may have been Triple H or someone. I asked him, ‘Hey, does Shawn wanna have a match?’ And they’re like, I don’t know. [I said] ‘But did we ask him?’ And they’re like no. I never got around to asking him like I asked The Undertaker. I never got around to asking Shawn, we weren’t close enough for me to ask him something like that, I didn’t have his phone number, [we are] closer now. So I never called him out. But the truth is, he probably wouldn’t have that match anyway, because we’ve talked about it before. What is the benefit? Who benefits from the match? If Shawn wins, okay. If I win, okay. There’s a lot of truth to what he was saying when he told me that and it’s alright. It would have been fun to have but for me it was about a learning experience.”
