AJ Styles made a name for himself in the independent circuit, especially TNA and then NJPW before he made his way to WWE. Since his appearance in the 2016 Royal Rumble, AJ Styles has cemented himself as one of the best in-ring workers in all of WWE.
The Phenomenal One can have a great match with almost anyone in the pro wrestling world and has proven that fact numerous times over the years.
While speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, WWE Champion Big E was asked about the idea of feuding with AJ Styles for the title. Big E loved the idea and was very excited at the prospect of feuding with The Phenomenal One.
“I can’t say yes to that idea any stronger or louder. Styles is a pioneer. I have so much respect for what he’s done throughout his career. If his whole career stopped before he got to WWE, he still would have been one of the best of this generation. The fact that he was able to do everything he did outside of here, and then come here and keep cooking, it’s amazing.”
We will have to wait and see if AJ Styles will be feuding with Big E for the WWE Championship somewhere down the line as that would make for a great storyline.
