AJ Styles reveals why Vince McMahon has pushed him in WWE. The Phenomenal One has become a mainstay during his short time in the WWE.
The WWE does not have the best track record when it comes to treating performers, they did not build from the ground up. This is their way of saying that the best wrestlers from other companies do not measure to the guys in the WWE.
This is the main reason why fans were worried about AJ Styles’ arrival. Not only had he spend almost all of his career in TNA, he did it as the face of the promotion. However, the Phenomenal One has had an impressive showing in the 4 and a half years in WWE.
He has won the WWE Championship twice. In fact, his second run with the title ran for over a year. Styles has also held both the United States Championship and the Intercontinental Championship. The Phenomenal One has now explained why he’s had a successful stint so far.

“I think it’s work ethic,” Styles said on his Twitch stream. “I think it’s knowing your part and going after it and giving them, and I say them – Vince isn’t the only one but he’s the most important one, don’t get me wrong. The fans are important. As long as they’re reacting, you’re doing something right. I think that’s the main thing.
“Vince sees that and understands it. Now, don’t get me wrong, he thought my first one was kind of a fluke like ‘Ok, flash of the pan, Royal Rumble…..’ that kind of thing. But giving me a chance and telling me what he wanted to see – that’s all I needed to know. What do you want to see?
“The thing was, when I first got in WWE, I wasn’t the typical good guy but the more I was there and understood they just wanted me to be who I was in New Japan and everywhere else. Is he heel or babyface? No, we’ll just let the crowd decide and go that direction.”
Styles is currently involved in a three way feud with Sami Zayn and Jeff Hardy over the Intercontinental title. The three are set to face each other at Clash of Champions in a triple threat ladder match.
