It appears AJ Styles has no more respect for the former WWE Champion after CM Punk called him out on Twitter for his lack of response due to all the unrest regarding racial inequality.

AJ Styles was recently asked by Times of India if he wanted to respond to the remarks that CM Punk made on Twitter about him. Instead of spending a lot of time trashing Punk, AJ simply said he won’t respond to a guy that he doesn’t respect.

“I will not react at all coming from a guy like that [who] I don’t respect anyway. It doesn’t really matter. Look, my job as a performer is to perform and get [fans’] minds off all the things that have happened throughout the world. I’m not going to react to people saying ridiculous and stupid things.”

Right now, AJ Styles’ focus is on another former Ring of Honor alum, Daniel Bryan. AJ will fight Daniel Bryan on the June 12th episode of SmackDown in the finals of a tournament to crown a new Intercontinental Champion.
