AJ Styles talks about Rob Van Damm, Jeff Hardy & Monday Nights

AJ Styles recently shared his feelings about the state of TNA, here are some highlights…

On losing the title to RVD –

“I definitely didn’t understand it. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure it. I was very surprised that they would want me to lose that title after holding it for so long, and to somebody who hasn’t been in wrestling for over a year, and came from WWE to win the World Title so quickly. And he should have been tired from wrestling a match before that (against Jeff Hardy). I was very conflicted on that. It was like, ‘I have no idea what’s going on here anymore.’ I don’t know how to put it in words. I was pissed off – I don’t want to say that – but at the same time, I was very confused. ‘Okay, I guess I’m not the star that I thought I was here at TNA. I guess I’m just a TNA guy”

On new blood to TNA –

“I think there are mistakes that have done. I don’t know if it’s necessarily the people we’ve brought in, but there’s stuff where surely they took a step back and thought, ‘Okay, maybe we don’t need this.’ There were some people brought in who I don’t think we necessarily needed. But, there’s Jeff Hardy. He sells so much merchandise; he’s making so much money for this company. There are other guys I think who deserved a shot at TNA who are not here that I’m very confused they’re not here because I think they could make money.”

On the mistake of moving to Monday Nights –

“We never should have switched to Monday nights. We know that now. I wish that we would have just gone live on Thursday nights. The first one we did on Monday nights was huge, but Thursday nights was our night. There’s no mistake about it; Monday night is WWE’s. It’s theirs. We need to own Thursday nights.”
