WWE star AJ Styles recently appeared on an episode of The Ringer Wrestling Show podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including why he feels he is edging closer to the end of his in-ring career.

Styles said, “I’m getting to that point where I am worried about embarrassing myself, my brain says we can do this, and my body is like, you’re stupid, we can not do this, we’re hurting every day when we roll out of bed, at some point this has to come to an end.”

“I’ve realized, like so many others that have come before me, the greats, they get out of it when we think there’s still time for them, and it’s because we don’t want to embarrass ourselves, so we’re just trying to get out while we still can, where we can still get around and just have fun away from wrestling, and I love it, this what I do, this is what I know.”

“I’ve spent more than half my life doing this, but at some point you’ve got to let go. I don’t want to disappoint you when you see AJ Styles, I want you to go, that’s my guy, that’s the guy I know, rather than go man, he just isn’t the same guy, he can’t do what he used to do. I don’t want to be that guy to you, I don’t want to let you down. My time is coming, it’s getting short, but I am going to enjoy it, I promise you that.”
