AJ Styles Had Plans For A Live Podcast Before Being Forced To Shut Down His Twitch Channel


As many of you know by now, AJ Styles was forced to shut down his Twitch channel last year after WWE’s new third-party platform policy. During a recent appearance on the “A Couple in with Cody Jinks” podcast, Styles revealed that he understood WWE’s decision, but also had plans to expand the channel and do a live podcast. He said,

“Vince said we couldn’t do it anymore, which is understandable. We were taking his product and making money off of it when he’s paying us to do a job. I get it and understand it. There are certain things that played into it. I am a gamer, but as far as Twitch, I had to let it go by the wayside. I was hoping to branch out. I started off playing games on Mixer, which ended up being sold, and I went to Twitch. I was amazed at how huge the community was. It was great. By the time I got to Twitch, it was more or less me talking for two hours rather than playing games. I was literally hoping to do a live podcast. That was the direction I was hoping to go.”
