The Sun recently conducted an interview with AJ Styles, in which he discusses his desire for TNA to do pay-per-views in the United Kingdom, his feelings on pessimistic fans, his status as a locker room leader, and more. In the following excerpt, Styles explains his current plans for retirement:
I would love to stop around 40. That’s my goal. It all depends. I don’t want to wrestle forever, I can’t. My body won’t hold up. It’s starting to break down already. When you hurt yourself chasing your kid, you’re getting a little bit too old.
“I want to be there for my family. I don’t want to look back and go, ‘I wish I’d been there’. My family is more important than my job.
“But I hope to be able to say that I was the first signed, and that I retired from TNA.
“I would love to continue to be part of TNA somehow (after I retire). I don’t know whether that is as an agent, or in the office, or handling talent relations. I would love to get the opportunity to sit down and talk to guys and say, ‘I know you want this, but this is where you’re at’ and be real with them.”
