AJ Styles Desperate For WWE Match Against Edge
Could they finally clash at the Showcase of the Immortals?
During a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, AJ Styles revealed that he is lobbying hard for a match with WWE Hall of Famer Edge.
"He's so knowledgeable. He's such a superstar. I would love to get the opportunity to get in the ring with him. There was that time when I thought there would never be an opportunity to wrestle him, and now, it's here. The time is limited in which we can pull it off. Whether he or I retire first, who knows, but I want to get that match. I desperately want to get that match. I think it's the one that most fans would enjoy".
The Phenomenal One and Rated-R Superstar have interacted twice, in the 2020 and 2021 Royal Rumble matches. Edge eliminated Styles from the 2020 bout. Styles suffered a separated shoulder after taking a bad bump from Edge's Spear, prior to being eliminated.
AJ noted that Edge feels the same way about a potential match and that they just need to 'make it happen'. Recent reports suggested that WWE were considering the match for WrestleMania 38.
