WWE SmackDown star Karrion Kross recently appeared on an episode of Konnan’s Keepin It 100 podcast, where he talked about a variety of topics such as how “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles is amazing to work with and how Styles has a ring IQ like nobody he has ever met.

Kross said, “He’s amazing to work with. Yeah, he’s the best.

Kross also talked about how the way AJ Styles sees wrestling is like he was ahead of his time and how he still thinks Styles is ahead of his time to this day.

“The way he sees wrestling is like he was ahead of his time in my opinion when he was coming up in TNA and I still think in a lot of aspects, he’s still ahead of his time even present day. I think there’s things that he’s doing, there’s nuances in things he’s doing that people aren’t even picking up that people will study in probably a decade from now going, he was the only one doing that and I won’t say what it is but if you know, you know when you watch his work…”
