AJ Styles Was Ready To Be A Babyface In WWE Again
The Phenomenal One sees being able to portray a good guy as a 'blessing'
During a recent appearance on Ryan Satin's Out of Character podcast, AJ Styles revealed that he is enjoying working as a babyface again, after being in the heel role for the past couple of years.
"Absolutely [I'm enjoying being a babyface again]. It had been a while since I feel like I've been a heel and I thought, 'Ah, it's time for a change. I'm ready to move on' and in my heart, as Allen Jones, I love kids, I love to make them smile, being able to do that as AJ Styles is a blessing".
The Phenomenal One also said that he enjoys being a mentor to younger talent and passing on the knowledge he has gained during his long and illustrious career.
"Sure, I enjoy being able to share information that I have so someone can be better. I mean that's something I think we should do all the time. I mean, we gotta create stars. I'm not gonna be here forever and so while I can still bump around and do these things, let me work with some guys who I can help".
This included his recent ream with Omos, whom Styles liked working with and helping develop.
"I remember them [WWE] asking me about it [working with Omos] and I was excited about the opportunity. I thought it'd be fun, and it was. It was fun. I enjoy helping him get to the next level and being able to help him learn as quick as he can".
AJ will compete for the WWE Title at Elimination Chamber on February 19, in an Elimination Chamber match also featuring WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Riddle and Austin Theory.
