WWE United States Champion AJ Styles spoke to Channel Guide Magazine about WWE being his home, his friends in WWE and his ‘WrestleMania’ goal.

As a flashback, we have included a video showcasing Styles’ match against Shane McMahon earlier this year at ‘WrestleMania 33.’ If you want a refresher, we highly recommend watching this match. Many consider this to be one of the highlights of the night when at first it was speculated McMahon couldn’t compete at Styles’ level.

Styles first spoke on WWE being his home:

“I’ve become more comfortable. This is my home. As before, I was the new guy. Although I’ve been in the business for a long time, when you come to somebody else’s house, it’s a different story. Now to be part of this family, it means everything to me. I think maturity has a lot to do with that. As you get older, you mature. Even though guys and girls are adults when they finally get here, they are still a maturity that has to go on and an understanding of how this business works. That way you can be a better part of the team to put your best foot forward and make the team better and not just focus on yourself. If the team plays well, then everyone does well. That’s what I want because this place is like a family, and I want everybody to do well.”

Seeing his friends and other veterans be welcomed into WWE:

“Samoa Joe is one of my best friends, so to see him in the ring with Brock [Lesnar] and doing that stuff, it was pretty awesome to see that. Any time I see Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows doing their thing, I’m always excited for them. Then seeing others like a Bobby Roode, Bobby Fish, guys that. I like seeing them in that position and doing well.”

Finally, he speaks on his ‘WrestleMania’ goal:

“There is the obvious milestone of main eventing WrestleMania. In the past, I have set things almost out of reach. That way if I reach that goal, then what an amazing trip that was. Then if I don’t, it was kind of out of my reach anyway. So, there are things like that I work to and look forward to. I always prepare for the next big thing.”
