AJ Styles On Leaving TNA and Returning To The Independents
AJ Styles discussed departing TNA and returning the independents, in an interview with DTRTwrestling.com:
The greatest thing about the independents is there’s a lot of passion in that locker room, there’s a lot of passion a lot of times with that promoter. They just have these expectations and these dreams that are so high that it’s just a positive thing when you’re there and it’s fun to be a part of that.
At first it was a little awkward, it was a little weird, it was scary. But you know, seeing that the indy’s are not dead, in fact they are very much alive. I’ve wrestled for Ring Of Honor which I don’t call them… claim them as an independent but other then that I’ve wrestled two other shows that were independents but drew big crowds, and I think that’s awesome. When your in front of big crowds you’re able to get that extra boost of energy that you may not of had and your going to put on great matches, probably matches people didn’t expect to see from that guy they considered the star.
