AJ Styles, one of the best pure wrestling talents in the world. The Internet man that everyone in the WWE Universe loves. And on this past raw something interesting happened.
AJ on this past Raw was put in a fatal four way for the #1 Contendership for the World HeavyWeight Championship after Roman Reign’s open challenge. This match was against Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, and the surprise entrant Cesaro.
He came out on top in this match, shocking everyone who thought it would be either Owens or Cesaro(Tell me honestly you thought Jericho would win… Of course you can’t) AJ won in this match a title shot against Reigns.
The real question is… Does AJ actually have a chance?
Let’s look at the facts:
- One con for AJ is that he is from… TNA, which to Vince is the sin of all sins. Vince likes to believe that all roads lead to the WWE, and that is the case with AJ. But that still doesn’t change the Hatred Vince has toward TNA.
- AJ has also never held a title in WWE yet, and it would be suprising of WWE to make him skip right to the big one. Although, AJ is an amazing wrestler and I wouldn’t blame WWE for making him make that huge jump.
- As we all know Roman is Vince’s special project, and as of now he isn’t necessarily the happy smiling fan loving guy. He has a new attitude, he is very neutral. This rivalry cold simply be for a Roman heel turn, AJ after all is the Internet sweetheart and who better to turn on to make everyone hate than the guy who everyone loves?
I truly believe later in his career AJ will be a WWE World HeavyWeight Champion, but even I’m not sure this is the right time. A Roman heel turn would really help, the boos of the top face would become boos for the top HEEL.
AJ, I’m so sorry, but I don’t think you have a chance. But best of luck to AJ in his World HeavyWeight Championship pursuits.
