WWE Star Hints At Retirement Soon

A former WWE Champion may be hanging up the boots sooner rather than later

AJ Styles has been wrestling for 25 years, beginning his career all the way back in 1999. With him now at 46 years of age, Styles is eyeing the end of what has been an illustrious in-ring career.  

During an interview with The Ringer Wrestling Show, AJ Styles was asked about his future in the ring, and he noted that he doesn’t want to continue longer than he is able to. 

“I'm getting to that point where I am worried about embarrassing myself. My brain says, 'We can do this' and my body's like, 'You're stupid. We cannot do this. We're hurting every day when we roll out of bed.' At some point, this has to come to an end. I've realized like so many others that have come before me, the greats, they get out of it when we think they're still time for them and it's because we don't want to embarrass ourselves. So we're just trying to get out while we still can where we can still get around and just have fun away from wrestling. I love it. This is what I do. This is what I know. I spent more than half my life doing this, but at some point, you gotta let go because it’s fun, but I don’t want to disappoint you. When you see AJ Styles, I want you to go, ‘That’s my guy’, rather than go, ‘He just isn’t the same guy. He can’t do what he used to do.’ I don’t want to be that guy to you. I don’t want to let you down. So my time is coming. It’s getting short, but I am going to enjoy it. I promise you that.”

Styles is set to do battle with LA Knight later tonight on WrestleMania 40 Sunday.
