The WWE Hall Of Famer Who Says They Helped AJ Styles Throughout His Career

AJ Styles, renowned for his illustrious career in the WWE, first left an indelible mark on the wrestling world through his tenure with TNA Wrestling. Over 12 years, Styles etched his name in the annals of TNA, engaging in memorable rivalries with wrestling luminaries like Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, and Booker T.

Booker T emphasised witnessing Styles’ evolution from his early days at the end of the WCW era to his remarkable development as a well-rounded performer.

I had a great time trying to help AJ Styles in a few different ways. He’s so talented. I can’t tell him anything about his wrestling, but for me, I was there for AJ in TNA. I wanted to see the growth of AJ Styles.

Booker’s sentiments reflect not only his respect for Styles’ abilities but also his admiration for Styles’ journey from a young wrestler at the end of the WCW era to the accomplished performer he is today.

Their paths crossed again in WWE, where Styles ascended as a formidable in-ring competitor while Booker transitioned into diverse non-wrestling roles, including that of a commentator and pre-show panellist.
