After last Sunday, everyone was talking about one person: Ronda Rousey. They were also talking about Shinsuke Nakamura. The King of Strong Style is now guaranteed to have a WWE Championship match at Wrestlemania. You know who isn’t guaranteed a spot? AJ Styles.
You see, Shinsuke gets to challenge the champion, so if AJ wants to face Nakamura at Wrestlemania, he has to remain champion for two more months. What can happen between now and April? What’s next for AJ Styles?
Defeating Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
AJ Styles managed to escape Philadelphia with the WWE Championship still around his waist. However, with the way his title defense ended, I don’t believe that his business with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn is over just yet.
Owens was pinned despite not being the legal man, and although it is his own fault (what with him attempting to bamboozle the referee), he is technically right. I believe that perhaps Shane McMahon will arrange a match of sorts between the three. A triple threat, maybe?
Of course, Shane could always just deny Owens and Zayn, but Daniel Bryan might not go with Shane’s flow. So when Owens, Zayn, and Styles meet again, I fully expect Shane to interfere and cost the best friends another shot at the WWE Championship. From there, the Canadians can go after the commissioner, and AJ Styles can go his own way.
