Anyone who has seen an AJ Styles Twitch stream knows he is not backward in coming forward and is more than happy to answer questions from his fans. This week he revealed he is seeking a match with Edge, once the Rated R Superstar returns.
“I’ve got to have a match with Edge before him and I both retire. I think that’s something that we both want. I know he tore his tricep, and hopefully it’s a speedy recovery for him. That’s one that I want badly, and I think that he would like to have one as well. It would be great. I’m still looking forward to it, Edge”
Of all the dream matches mentioned when Edge returned this January, this has got to be up there and a stellar outing from AJ in The Boneyard Match at Wrestlemania and a fantastic performance by Edge in “The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” at Backlash will only have strengthened that notion.
Edge has also stated in recent interviews that AJ is one of the Wrestlers he would like to face once he returns so the signs are good that we will get this match.
The Phenomenal One was one of the first Superstars to take a spear from Edge, when Edge made his memorable return at the 2020 Royal Rumble. In fact the spear led to Styles spending some time out with an arm injury. Don’t be surprised to hear AJ recall this when the two eventually clash.
