Here is what The Phenomenal One has to say about joining AEW on his Twitch stream.

“As far as AEW is concerned, never say never. But once I think my career is done, I hope to work with WWE in some capacity. I would like to be a recruiter or a scout. I don’t have any problems going out to the Indies. I know we have scouts who go to weightlifting contests and get these big guys. I wanna get these guys and girls who always wanted to do this all their life. I would like to guide these guys and girls to at least get to the performance center and work on and polish themselves.”

Several WWE Alumni and Legends have now become coaches in NXT. Matt Bloom, William Regal, and most recently Shawn Micheals. Adding AJ Styles to that legendary coaching panel will be the best possible move for the company.
