When you think about the best in-ring stars in WWE, and arguably pro wrestling as a whole, AJ Styles needs to be one of the first names that come to mind – and more often than not, he is.
Now that he’s in his early 40s it feels like Styles is entering into a brand new phase of both his life and his career, but that doesn’t mean he’s any less capable of putting on an absolute masterclass in the ring.
This weekend AJ is going to take part in a vital triple threat match that will play a huge role in the RAW vs SmackDown vs NXT debacle which is currently unfolding before our very eyes, and then on Monday, he’ll have another tough test on his hands in the form of Humberto Carrillo.
It certainly doesn’t seem as if Styles is all too concerned with facing the newcomer, who is one of many top 205 Live stars that are starting to make a strong transition over to the main roster – following in the footsteps of Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy, with Akira Tozawa also seemingly being on the verge of a nice push.
Humberto still has a long way to go before he can be viewed as someone that will make a substantial impact at the highest level in WWE, but they certainly seem to be getting behind him for the time being.
While Styles may be used to get him even more over, we can’t imagine that he’s going to lose here.
