AJ Styles Discusses Being A Mentor To Omos, Believes Omos Will Be A Huge Star For WWE

AJ Styles and Omos have been a formidable duo since being paired up with AJ Styles at the end of 2020. In Omos' first television match, which took place at WrestleMania 37, he and Styles won the Raw Tag Team Championships.

Styles is one of the most decorated and well-respected wrestlers in WWE and all of wrestling, and as the elder statesman in the pairing, he feels it's his duty to mentor Omos.

"It's a job most of us should have after 20 years of being in the business. Just help the younger talent, just like the older talent has helped me. We can go back to Jerry Lynn, Christopher Daniels, John Cena. I know it's crazy for me to say John Cena, but I learned so much from that guy. It's only right that I pass down the knowledge I've had to Omos, who can and will be a huge superstar in the WWE," Styles said on After The Bell. "I have experience all over the world. The experience I've had in the Independents, Japan, and the States, it's a little different than the WWE experience. I can't imagine guys like Kurt Angle who started in the WWE and learned so quickly to be the best I've ever seen. That's the good thing about Omos. He's starting in the WWE. It's not just a bodyslam. You have to know where the cameras are. Little things like that, that I had to learn on the fly because I hadn't experienced it before. There's always a lot to learn and you never stop learning. Even though I'm trying to pass knowledge down, I'm still getting it every time I step in the ring."

Omos was an immediate force at WrestleMania 37, receiving a strong reaction from the crowd who waited to see if he could go in the ring.

Speaking about his WrestleMania experience alongside Omos, Styles said, "I was worried about him. It's about the little things that make you look like a superstar. He did great. When he was making the comeback, I was feeling it. He did well and continues to do well. They were chanting for him and wanted to see what he was going to do. I knew that when I made the tag, there was going to be a rumble coming."

Omos and Styles are set to face The Viking Raiders at some point in the near future at Erik & Ivar recently won a tag team number one contenders battle royal.
