‘The Phenomenal One’ is a brilliant wrestler. He cuts powerful promos and works his way through the ring in a technical way. However, Styles, as an individual, is much more than a wrestler. He is a family man, but seldom does the WWE Universe talk about it.

AJ Styles married his high school sweetheart, Wendy Jones, in 2000. She was born in 1978 in North Carolina and met Styles at their high school in Georgia. They started dating on Valentine’s Day in 1996.

Wendy Jones is a teacher by profession. She secured a scholarship to pursue her higher studies so she could achieve her dream of becoming a teacher.

In fact, Styles had previously revealed that he refused an initial offer from WWE because he wanted to ensure his wife got to follow her dreams.

“I wanted to make sure that she was able to go after her dream. That was very important to me. Mine could come second, so I didn’t take the developmental with WWE in Cincinnati. Years later, it ended up leading me back to WWE at the perfect time.”

“My wife is brilliant, though I like to say she made a mistake in marrying me. She worked so hard to get to college and earn a scholarship, and her dream was becoming a teacher.”

WWE used AJ Styles’ marriage in a storyline when the company made Samoa Joe interrupt a segment to read out a letter from Wendy Jones. It said Wendy Jones wanted Joe to take out Styles and was having second thoughts about him as a husband and father. Of course, it was a fake letter, and it enraged Styles when he found out about that.

Apart from this, neither WWE nor Styles has brought Wendy Jones into the limelight.
