Former champion AJ Styles has revealed why he was terrified when he made his debut in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

On the latest episode of WWE Backstage, AJ Styles made a special appearance and spoke on various topics including his debut and his possible upcoming fight against The Undertaker.

AJ Styles made his WWE debut in the Royal Rumble Pay-per-View (PPV) in 2016. The Phenomenal One went on to describe how terrified he was before making his first-ever appearance in WWE.

“I was terrified. We went over the match, and they took me out of the trailer where they were hiding me, and I saw Road Dogg and I didn't want to let him go. I'm in someone else's house. It's their home. I'm a guest. I don't live there yet. I didn't know until literally days before, I didn't know. I don't think many people knew. It was huge for me and intimidating. I'm a 38-year-old man coming to the WWE for the first time, it's intimidating,” the two-time champion explained in the show.

AJ Styles came into the Royal Rumble 2016 at No. 3 where he came face-to-face with The Big Dog Romain Reins. He went on to compete against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 32 later in the year. He is currently on a mission to get The Undertaker to accept his challenge for a match for WrestleMania 36, which is scheduled to be held at the James Raymond Stadium in Tampa, Florida in April.

AJ Styles in a bid to get a response from The Deadman, also took shots at his wife Michelle McCool, who is a former WWE Champion herself. While challenging the Phenom, AJ Styles said, "The truth is I don't see this mythical monster anymore. I don't see this Phenom anymore. What I do see is a broken down old man named Mark Callaway. Undertaker should have retired 10 years ago when he was in his prime. I don't know what keeps him coming back, but I've got a pretty good idea. It's his wife, it's Michelle McCool.”

He further added, "Hey Michelle, I hope you're watching at home because I'm about to let the cat out of the bag here.”

With the big event less than a month away, one could expect a response from The Undertaker in the coming weeks.
