IMPACT Wrestling star doesn’t want to be in the shadow of AJ Styles
IMPACT Wrestling’s Ace Austin has commented on people comparing him to WWE’s AJ Styles. The newly-crowned X-Division Champion has said that he doesn’t want to be in the shadow of The Phenomenal One and is looking to create something on his own.
Styles is considered to be one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Over the years, many up-and-coming wrestlers have been compared to the former WWE Champion, and one such talent is Ace Austin from IMPACT Wrestling.
The Ace Of Spades shared his thoughts on these comparisons in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
Austin said the reason he is compared to AJ Styles is down to the fact that he is “the best” like The Phenomenal One. However, the current X-Division Champion also made it clear that he is not in the shadow of AJ Styles and is creating something special in his own way.
“I’m constantly compared to AJ Styles, and I’m compared to the best because I am the best. But it’s like your earlier question. I’m compared to him, but I am not in his shadow. I’m creating something special my own way,” said Ace Austin.
AJ Styles and Ace Austin have a lot in common. Both wrestlers share a similar style of wrestling. Some fans already feel that the Ace Of Spades could replicate the kind of success enjoyed by The Phenomenal One on Tuesday Nights.
