AJ Styles almost had to change his name in WWE
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 09/11/2018 at 02:51 PM


During a recent interview with ESPN.com, AJ Styles revealed that his name was almost changed when he signed to WWE:

"When Triple H and I were talking, he said, 'I don't know if we'll be able to keep your name.' I said, 'That's fine, I'll be any name you want me to be called, except I do have this huge AJ tattoo on my side so that might be a problem,'" Styles said. "I think it worked out for the best because we weren't taken and being changed into something else. We were the same characters that they saw from different companies and that they were familiar with and people were already invested in. I think that was a good move by WWE."

Styles also noted that him and Christopher Daniels had to strongly push for TNA to hire Samoa Joe:

"We literally, we begged them," Styles said. "I couldn't for the life of me understand why they wouldn't want a guy like this. Chris and I worked on him profusely, every week it seemed like, to bring this guy in."
