AJ Styles Comments on If WWE’s New World Heavyweight Title is a “Secondary” Title
The New York Post held a recent interview with AJ Styles. One of the topics discussed included Styles’ thoughts about if WWE’s new World Heavyweight Championship is a “secondary” title due to the circumstances over its creation.
“Is it a secondary? Well if the Raw championship is held by Roman, the SmackDown championship is held by Roman, then how can you argue that it’s not? We had to make a new championship because Roman holds them all. What happens if he decides to wrestle for the World Heavyweight championship? It is what it is, and we got what we got. If we make the best of it, and if and when Roman does challenge [for it], we beat the brakes off of him, whomever it might be, then we’ll see what title’s secondary.”
Styles also gave his thoughts about Roman Reigns’ work schedule in WWE as the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
“This is what you want to do. This is what you want to be. This is what you’re trying to get to in your career. I’m not mad at him. I told him, ‘If I could do it, I would, but I’m not Roman Reigns.”
