AJ Styles Interested In WWE Match With The Rock

AJ Styles open to WWE match against The Rock

AJ Styles is interested in facing The Rock inside a WWE ring, but under one condition.

Styles told Sports Illustrated: "Of course, I'm interested, but only if that means The Rock is turning babyface. I'm not interested in being a mediocre bad guy. I want to bring this to a whole new level.

"I like to think I’m one of the few old school guys left. I look back and I'm so thankful I was able to pay off my house. That's one of those things I hoped to do in my career, that I could do something I enjoy and provide for my family and still have something left over for retirement. I've stuck with it long enough to take care of everyone who needed to be taken care of."

The Rock is currently away from WWE TV as he is training for 'The Smashing Machine', a movie about former UFC fighter Mark Kerr. Dwayne Johnson will star in the movie as Kerr and he is expected to move on to working on Moana-related projects when filming of 'The Smashing Machine' wraps up in early August.

Current plans are in place for The Rock to face Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 41. Johnson made his return to WWE in January 2024 and the original plan would have seen Johnson win the Undisputed WWE Universal Title in the main event of WrestleMania 40 and then immediately vacate the gold so he could go back to Hollywood. 

Cody Rhodes ultimately won the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship from Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, with the belt having since been renamed the Undisputed WWE Title. AJ Styles unsuccessfully challenged for the gold at Backlash.
