Kevin Nash reveals the advice he gave AJ Styles before his first WrestleMania

It’s been seven years since AJ Styles’ entry into the Royal Rumble in January 2016 sent the WWE Universe into a frenzy. Styles is now one of many Grand Slam champions, having won the WWE Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship and Tag Team Championship during this time. However, for many superstars, nothing beats their first WrestleMania.

Kevin Nash recalls offering Styles advice before his fight against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 32 on the latest episode of Kliq This. “I remember AJ’s first WrestleMania,” Nash said before actually going into what he said to Styles.

He was just like ‘F*** man, I just want to get through this’ because they tore him to shreds. I said no, I said that’s what they do, they steal those moments from you. I said cherish this because one day you’ll be my age knowing you’ll never go there again, and you’ll wish God you savored this moment you’re having right now.

Styles then lost to Jericho that April night, but he’s clearly found incredible success within WWE, so much so that “The Phenomenal One” wants to stay with WWE for as long as they have it. However, it appears Nash’s advice was ignored at the time. “He said, ‘Well, fuck off,'” Nash recalled with a laugh.

I said okay, I was just trying to help.

Despite his many separate tenures with WWE, Nash has only wrestled at two WrestleManias, 11 and 12. Styles has competed on seven WrestleMania cards so far. For the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
