In his short time in WWE, AJ Styles has main evented two pay-per-views, sold a whole ton of merchandise, given us some of the best matches of the year and has generally breathed life back into at least part of the company’s product. His wrestling style feels like something new and revolutionary and his matchups seem brand-new … because they are.
Since former WWE champion Seth Rollins returned from his knee injury, he and Styles have been paired together on WWE Live Events (AKA house shows) and have been reportedly tearing the roof off every building in which they mix it up. Given Rollins recently told fans that Styles is his dream WrestleMania main event opponent, this might be an audition of sorts for a future main event program between the two. We can dare to dream, anyway. By all accounts, their matches have been … phenomenal.
