We all have our favorite WWE or NXT superstar that we want to be champion one day. Without trying to be biased, AJ Styles sticks out to me as a great Future WWE Champion. I am not some huge Styles fan and do not even own any of his shirts…yet. I just wanted to convey that I am writing this if I were a promoter and Styles was in my roster. Lets talk about all the things AJ Styles brings to the table and why he could be a future contender as champ.
He knows his way around a mic and can always amp up the crowd in any direction. As a face or as a heel, he can really get to a crowd. Look at the memorial day edition of Monday Night Raw. On August 30th he got the same amount of cheers as John Cena received boo’s. Then within a 5 minute span, the whole crowd was yelling at AJ & The club for attacking John Cena. Styles for some reason really connects with the crowd on so many different levels, I am not sure why, but those are facts and you can’t teach that (Yes I had to).
AJ’s in-ring style and the way he carries himself just oozes higher caliber superstar. He definitely has a reason for coming off this way. Styles has been in the business for so long, in so many matches, been the top guy before, the guy really knows what he is doing. His matches just always seem intriguing to me and also the audience. Why do you think WWE is already giving him a push with John Cena? John Cena loves to be challenged and does not want to work with stars that could put him in another chance for an injury by being sloppy or nervous in the ring.
He is a refined superstar that really does not need any real adjustments to make it to the top of WWE. It is very rare you have someone that can enter in the WWE and really not have to change much to make it. Look at all the superstars that already have a following but when they enter in WWE things just dont pan out for some reason or that character does not come off as it once did. It does not matter as face or a heel I think he has shown already he can thrive in both realms, which to me speaks volumes of the longevity of a superstar. I cannot predict the future and have been wrong before but if I had to put money on someone that could be up for the Title sooner rather then later, then I think it could be the phenomenal one, AJ Styles.
