Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

Though this might surprise some fans because of how low he is on the list, but at number six I think it's a fair place for the "Phenomenal One." It is hard to believe that at this point AJ Styles has been a member of WWE for the last three years and nobody could've expected him to have the career he has had. At this point Styles is a two time WWE Champion and two time United States Champion; also Styles is one of only a handful of talent that has held the WWE, IWGP, TNA and NWA World Championships.
Since his arrival Styles has torn down the house with Chris Jericho, John Cena, Samoa Joe, Brock Lesnar, and various others. It is amazing to me that AJ as he has gotten older he hasn't lost a step and really in my opinion has only gotten better with age. For the last few months all we really have heard about AJ was a question if he will resign with the WWE. Now in most cases people would love to see AJ walk away from the company and head to All Elite, but clearly I think it is more likely that Styles will stay put and resign with the company.
With the sudden arrival of a heel Daniel Bryan we have seen AJ slide down from the main event and for the first time in a very long time Styles is out of the title picture. It has seemingly been difficult for the company to not book him in the title picture or book him well enough outside the picture. The real test now will come after his Wrestlemania feud with Randy Orton comes to a close where do they go next. In my opinion they need to find a way to keep him out of the WWE title picture for a little longer and maybe a move to Raw wouldn't be a bad idea. Comparing him to some of his co-workers and his former co-workers it isn't that AJ is bad it's just that a lot of other people have gotten better than him.
