Eric Young was a huge name in TNA. When he shifted to WWE, fans were hoping to see another glorious run of their favorite superstar. However, WWE completely wasted Young’s potential with a lack of storylines and good matches. Ultimately, WWE released him earlier this year due to pandemic related budget cuts.

After his release, Young promptly went back to his roots as he joined IMPACT Wrestling. He won the IMPACT World title for the second time in September. Now, another former TNA and current WWE Superstar has praised Young’s abilities.

Former Intercontinental Champion, AJ Styles, has been very vocal against WWE recently. As a wrestler and fan of the craft, he fully supported Young’s decision to move back into TNA. In a recent Twitch stream, AJ Styles praised Eric Young immensely.

“I have always known how good Eric was. If given the opportunity, he will shine. I don’t think he got much of an opportunity on the main roster. He could have done a lot more (if given the opportunity).”

He then said Young and Good Brothers were doing “bigger and better things” without WWE.

Styles asserted, “Sometimes being in WWE is not the best thing for you. It’s the best thing for me. It’s the right place for me. I know what to expect when I go to work and I have been everywhere. It’s a well-oiled machine. Don’t care what anybody says, it is.”

AJ Styles recently confirmed that he considered leaving for AEW after his previous WWE contract was almost over. However, that never happened because WWE offered him a lucrative five-year deal.
