AJ Styles Was Hoping To Turn His Twitch Into A Live Podcast

Before WWE had to cease operations on third party platforms, AJ Styles had become one of the more popular wrestlers on Twitch.

Styles was very interactive with his community, answering questions before embarking on a game stream.

Speaking on A Couple in with Cody Jinks, Styles discussed having to give up his Twitch and his plans before the ban.

"Vince said we couldn't do it anymore, which is understandable. We were taking his product and making money off of it when he's paying us to do a job. I get it and understand it. There are certain things that played into it. I am a gamer, but as far as Twitch, I had to let it go by the wayside. I was hoping to branch out. I started off playing games on Mixer, which ended up being sold, and I went to Twitch. I was amazed at how huge the community was. It was great. By the time I got to Twitch, it was more or less me talking for two hours rather than playing games. I was literally hoping to do a live podcast. That was the direction I was hoping to go," said Styles.

Styles was part of the group that went to Vince McMahon to discuss WWE banning Twitch accounts.

Styles is set to team with Omos at WrestleMania 37 to challenge The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) for the Raw Tag Team Titles.
