AJ Styles recently participated in an interview with TimesLIVE, where he spoke about the recently released WWE 2K Battlegrounds, the next-generation of video games, and much more. You can check out some of the highlights below:
On the WWE 2K series taking a break every year:
I think it’s a great idea. If it were up to me, which it’s not, we would put out 2K21 next year, skip 2022, and have Battlegrounds 2 instead. We are well and ready prepared. We are doing the same thing as Activision with Call of Duty. Ee have two different studios for games. They’re swapping that out every year and it keeps things fresh, keeps things different. For me, this is a great idea and I hope they continue.
On whether or not he plays as himself:
Why do I need to build a character when I can just be me? I’ll tell you why: My son will probably play as me and beat the trash out of me and I’ll have to make up a character to defeat this dude. But that’s what’s so cool about it,hat you can do that. It has always been cool, in every 2K game, that you can create anybody. Before I was in the WWE, I was in the 2K games. That’s exciting for kids and adults.
On the next-generation of video game consoles:
C’mon man! Whichever one I can get first, that’s what it’s coming down to. Preordering both, hopefully I get them both. There are some games coming out for the PS5 that are really cool. I am an Xbox guy. When I play games, it’s usually on the Xbox. But I’m not counting out PlayStation at all. Spider-Man looks amazing. A couple of friends are into the Harry Potter that’s coming to the PS5 and I don’t know much of what’s coming out on the Xbox Series X.
I’m kind of a little bit excited for the PS5.
