AJ Styles Talks Triple H Being In Charge, 'He Cares About The People That Work For Him'

AJ Styles praises Triple H.

Many wrestlers within WWE have publicly sang the praises of Triple H in recent months, with many of those people noting that he is responsible for the start of a new era in WWE. This use of verbiage seemingly refers to Vince McMahon no longer having any power in WWE, as he resigned from TKO in January 2024 after Janel Grant filed a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault, sexual trafficking, and emotional abuse.

While speaking to Shakiel Mahjouri for a new interview, AJ Styles was asked about the reign of Triple H in WWE and in response, the 'Phenomenal One' talked about how he cares about the people that work for him.

“He’s really smart and he really cares. That’s what we need. We need someone who not only wants to put on a great product but cares about the people that are working for him and doing their best. Sometimes we hit a wall and we’re not sure exactly what they want or what they want us to do. Just having that communication to say, ‘Hey man, this is what I need.’ It flips just like that and you understand it. Sometimes we just need time, maybe more time in NXT. I appreciate the fact that he cares about [us] because I’ve seen so much talent that definitely had a right to be in the WWE, but we didn’t give enough time to develop. I feel like we kind of ruined their lives to some degree because this is the peak of wrestling and we just said, ‘you’re not good enough’. I hate that. That’s not true mind you, but that’s what we’ve said doing what we were doing and I don’t think Triple H is willing to do that without giving someone a chance.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Styles talked about Tama Tonga's debut in WWE. Fans can learn more here.
