It isn't irrelevant, especially in the context of a supposed legend. When do "legends" that "don't" lose, lose? Usually outside their country in the opponents home country. AJ has wrestled in Texas before and is a southerner. The only way AJ loses this match is if he actually was a jobber at his prime and that is ludicrous. Some british guy comes to Texas and squashes one of the tops guys in the southern region? Don't see it.
