    - AJ Styles, the "former" TNA Heavyweight Champion, has arrived in Japan to wrestle Seiya Sanada tomorrow night in WRESTLE-1.

    This will be AJ Styles’ first match competing in Japan since August of 2008, but right now he said that his role as champion is to defend the belt all over the world. Styles admitted that he does not know much about Seiya Sanada, but he heard that Sanada is considered a "young ace" candidate in the promotion.

    Styles was asked about how he plans to go through the match. He said that he has many moves in his arsenal from the Styles Clash to the Spiral Tap, as well as a new submission move called the Calf Killer that may be used in the match.

    Styles was then asked about his thoughts in general about W-1. He said all he knows is that it's a new promotion run by The Great Muta (Keiji Mutoh) and that there are a lot of good talent.

    Styles was asked about who he would want to face in W-1, to which he replied The Great Muta, because "he is an icon in the world of professional wrestling." He added that he hopes to have a match against Muta some day.
