That sounds like a plan. Wrestlers often have a hard time finding a way out of the industry when they retire. If they have spent a majority of their adult life in the wrestling business, it can be difficult to figure out a way to move on. There are some spots available in the wrestling world after their careers are over though and now one modern legend is interested in taking one of those spots.
AJ Styles has spent the last few weeks in NXT, dealing with Grayson Waller. Styles defeated Waller in a match this week on NXT and seemed to wrap up his time on the show. In a video posted to WWE’s YouTube page, Styles said that he loved his time in NXT and could see himself becoming a coach or a trainer in NXT after his career is over. Styles said the wrestlers are eager to learn, which he sees as a positive sign going forward. There is no word on when Styles plans to retire from the ring.
This could be a good thing. Check out Styles’ statement, his time in NXT, and some of his greatness:
Opinion: This is one of those things that sounds great on paper and while it would be hard to imagine a promotion not wanting Styles to be a trainer, WWE has been making some interesting choices as of late. They have recently fired a variety of trainers and coaches, making it a little hard to imagine them bringing Styles in. If nothing else, I’m sure some other promotion would love to have Styles there helping their younger wrestlers.
What do you think of Styles? What would you to see him do in wrestling before he retires? Let us know in the comments below.
