AJ Styles reveals his first wrestling ring name and describes his first match

WWE Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles often answers questions from fans during his live streams. Styles is now on Twitch and during a recent live stream, was asked by a fan about his first wrestling match.

Speaking about his first match, AJ Styles spoke about what it was like wrestling in front of a crowd. He also revealed that he wrestled the match wearing a mask. Styles also revealed that he wrestled as Mr. Olympia in that first match:

For me, I thought it was awesome. I mean, I was in a ring and it’s not in front of a whole bunch of people but there were people out there. And for me, it was awesome because I was doing it in front of people. I bet that if I watched it now – we’re talking about 21 years ago, it would be terrible. I am sure of it. But for young AJ, well, that first match was under a mask and they called me Mr. Olympia. But I was out there, and I was happy about that. – h/t Wrestling Inc
