During the WWE Draft, SmackDown drafted the entire OC stable. AJ Styles, Mia Yim, and the Good Brothers were all part of the deal. Then they came out later as a full faction.
AJ Styles and his stable made their way to the ring, marking his return to WWE television. Styles did not get involved in any action this week. He sat on a turnbuckle while his stable took on the Viking Raiders and Valhalla, but he did make an appearance on television.
AJ Styles said that they have just started on SmackDown. He might not have wrestled, and Styles is not booked for the WWE live event in Texas tomorrow, but he did execute a Phenomenal Forearm before he left.
