AJ Styles comments on Tama Tonga being signed by WWE

During an interview with Shakiel Mahjouri, AJ Styles commented on former NJPW star Tama Tonga being signed by WWE…

“Truth be told, I wanted him much earlier than he came, but the timing wasn’t right. He came at the perfect time. He went from sort of the mid level of a card to the top and I love it for him. He’s a good dude, he deserves it. I’m sorry, he doesn’t deserve it, we don’t deserve anything. He earned that chance to be where he is today. I am so stinking happy for him, so glad he’s there. It’s awesome.” (quote courtesy of Skylar Russell)

Tonga will wrestle in his first WWE PLE at Backlash this Saturday.
