“Eddie Guerrero – I think it would be fun to wrestle him. I think that would have been fun to see how these guys do it, and see if it’s the same. And I feel like, at this point in my career, it would probably be pretty close to the same kinds of things they were thinking. The great thing about those guys is that they were able to work really good guys a lot. You’re talking about Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit? They were already wrestling in Japan before they ever made it to WCW and went to the WWE. So, they had access to top talent right from the get go.” H/T: Wrestlinng Inc

Vince McMahon’s initial reaction on AJ Styles at Royal Rumble
AJ Styles who made his WWE debut back in 2016 at Royal Rumble also surprised company’s Chairman Vince McMahon, who initially considered Styles as a fluke. But ‘the Phenomenal One’ proved the boss wrong with his lethal performance at Royal Rumble.
This is what Styles recalled about that moment:
“The reaction that I got at the Royal Rumble 2016 was awesome, it was amazing, but Vince didn’t really believe that – [he thought] that it was a fluke, basically.” said AJ, “That’s what he thought it was. I wasn’t even going to be on RAW the next day, but they convinced him otherwise.”
AJ Styles will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Jeff Hardy this week on SmackDown Live.
