AJ Styles is regarded as one of the all-time greats in the pro wrestling world for a very good reason. He had incredible matches with almost everyone in WWE and that includes Brock Lesnar. They had clashed in the past and there was a good reason why they didn’t main event Survivor Series back in 2017.

Brock Lesnar squared off against AJ Styles at Survivor Series 2017 in a Champion vs Champion match. The match turned out to be an absolute banger, with Lesnar coming out on top in the end.

While speaking on his Oh…You Didn’t Know podcast, Road Dogg revealed that the match didn’t main event the show because higher-ups were not sure what AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar were going to do in the match.

“We didn’t know what to close with [at Survivor Series 2017]. AJ [Styles] and Brock [Lesnar] or this [men’s traditional five-on-five match] and so we chose AJ and Brock to not close. We’re gonna close with the other one because we didn’t know what AJ and Brock was gonna do… I didn’t know it was gonna be good, and this has happened more than once. In retrospect, you go, man, I sure wish we had closed with that one, you know what I mean? Everybody would have gone home happy and so, again, they still went home happy I think anyway.”


We will have to wait and see whether Brock Lesnar and AJ Styles will ever face each other again in the future. Fans would love to see the two duke it out again.
