Dear WWE Creative, Thank You For Going With AJ Styles

WWE Hall of Fame
Dear WWE Creative,

What a week it has been for you, and really all WWE fans worldwide. Bet you are basking (a little) in the after glow of the Wrestlemania 32 weekend and post-Mania RAW. While you can’t take all the credit for some of the incredible moments in the past week (Zayn versus Nakamura at TakeOver, Michael PS Hayes singing at the WWE Hall of Fame, the Women’s Triple Threat Match at ‘Mania); it must have been an honor sitting on the sidelines, to some degree, and soaking it all in.

However, Wrestlemania 32 is all but a distant memory now, and next week, you won’t have all of that hype (or Shane McMahon) to fall back. But it seems you have set yourself up quite well. The debut of Apollo Crew, Enzo and Big Cass, and Baron Corbin were impressive. Cesaro has returned; and there seems to be a beautiful (and intrusive) Maryse by the side of Miz to make him relevant again. But even more impressive was an AJ Styles win; which turned him into the number one contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. You had me guessing for a while there during the Fatal Four Way match on Monday; and Styles was my last pick to win. And that was not because I did not think he was worthy, rather I was going by the typical WWE Creative order recipe: heels first (Owens being before Jericho), and then potentially Cesaro, to make a huge splash with his return. You surprised me, Creative, and it was a pleasant surprise.

I think this is the right move, even if this feud doesn’t equal a title win for Styles in the end; and I don’t believe that this program could or would bury the guy. In a lot of ways, it will further his character, and give him more of a main event spotlight. Besides, you know better Creative; burying a guy that is this over, at the hands of guy still trying to get over, would be character suicide in this day and age for Reigns.

There are a number of ways to handle this, and I’m sure you are weighing out your options as it is.

Would this be perfect timing to turn Roman Reigns heel? It just might be, Creative. Off the cusp of a negative reaction from the Wrestlemania crowd this past Sunday, only to get booed out of the arena during RAW; you may be re-thinking this Reigns/face idea. Alas, despite only being in the WWE for a mere two and half months, Styles has had the opposite affect; being fully over with the WWE Universe, and I do believe hitting that child demographic you all oh-so love to target. Perhaps this would be a perfect time to re-consider the superhero character in Reigns, and have him join the dark side of the roster for a bit.

Or perhaps Styles is simply a distraction, for something else coming down the pipe. Maybe a returning Seth Rollins interrupts their match, that may (or may not be) scheduled for WWE’s May 1st pay-per-view (PPV), Payback. Even more, maybe this match is simply going to help build another feud the WWE Universe has been anticipating: Ambrose versus Reigns, where potential Ambrose, fed up with Reigns’ spotlight, turns on his former Shield buddy.

For Styles’ sake, I hope this is not the case, as I personally would love to see him in a title race program with at least two matches, versus a single one.

Either way, AJ Styles is the number one contender for Roman Reigns’ title for now, and I cannot wait to see how you have this one play out.

    This is the perfect time to turn Reigns heel. The boos are getting heavier and he is up against one of the best babyfaces on the roster right now + “I’m not a bad guy, I’m not a good guy, I’m THE guy” line is great for a heel to use

    • Si Nicholls

      He’s not convincing thou, I’m not sure why, it could tone of voice, facial expression (or lack of change to it), accent, body language, but Roman just doesn’t come across well on the mic

      • The Shockmaster

        It’s that stupid smirk he has on his face all the time

    • The one and only great one

      It’s because of that line, that I think his heel turn has already started. His promo on Raw and Smackdown had him being cocky and arrogant which are traits of a heel.

  • Lara_P1

    Too bad this match was made to make Reigns look strong. AJ will carry him throughout the match and make Roman look good. AJ could wrestle a broom and it would be a great match.

    • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

      RR gets carried through every match anyway

      • jcice13

        that can be said for many guys who’ve held the belt,

        • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

          But not like RR has ! The guy literally has 4 moves

          • jcice13

            stop. now you’re not being fair.how many brawlers have a lot of moves? he’s lightning quick for his size and can jump.he’s an athlete who’s wrestling….and yet you still didn’t name one guy his size, other than Cesaro and Orton, that move like he does.I’m not saying like the guy but if you can’t see athleticism you’re not being fair

          • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

            Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, Apollo Crews just to name a few shall I continue ?

          • jcice13

            the only one who compares is Apollo.Owens and Joe are no where near the athlete Reigns is..Reigns is so much faster and quicker and stronger and those 2 guys couldn’t vertical a phone book.I didn’t say wrestler I said athlete…..and no one would ever suggest that Owens and Joe are in Reigns’ class..better wrestlers? no doubt…better athletes? no way.and I may be wrong but did Joe or Owens ever make an all-conference football squad?. so yeah you should continue and this time use athletes who are reigns’ size

          • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

            Hold up. Has RR ever performed a moonsault ? You’re comparing football accomplishments to wrestling ? Also you’re telling me the guys I named who are bigger btw aren’t as agile smh !!! Anyway I’ll continue Harper, Ziggler, Rusev, heck even Fandango I could go on Jericho, Ambrose,Rollins……. The guy’s a bum my friend

          • jcice13

            again you have shown you’re not reading or understanding what I said..my last reply to you I couldn’t have stated it any clearer..I said “I didn’t say wrestler,I said athlete” and yet there you are talking wrestling..and ziggler, ambrose, rollins and jericho are “big” guys? it’s obvious you have not grasped what I am trying to convey.so I will end my part of this conversation now..

          • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

            And again you’ve shown the inability to comprehend as well. Again you bring in sports background in which case you could only include Titus O’neal and Jack Swagger. RR is 6’3 265 meanwhile KO is 6’0 266 did I make my point ???? (shhhhhh it’s ok) Also I’d like to point out ……Ah never mind ??????

          • Joseph Lisnow

            Crews in time. not now.

          • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

            Why not ? This guy didn’t just start wrestling in NXT ya know.

  • Deano Wilkins

    Whether RR is a heel or a face is irrelevant as he is never going to get over until they ditch the cargo pants, builders boots and bullet proof vest. It shouldn’t make a difference but a bit of a makeover would at least help give him a bit of a chance to show some personality too.

  • T-Rock (#TeamHollywood)

    Spoiler: Reigns wins over a former Tna world heavyweight champion
    -Vince

    • Someguy

      ( ?° ?? ?°)( ?° ?? ?°)( ?° ?? ?°)

    • jcice13

      well really.do you think they’re taking the belt off Reigns so quickly?

      • T-Rock (#TeamHollywood)

        LOL nope the point of my post is saying vince is not just going to let aj go over reigns

        • jcice13

          well one can not expect it to be this quickly so yeah that’s a moot point.forget about AJ no matter who they put up against him right now isn’t winning

  • jcice13

    wow lots of hate for Reigns..personally I don’t mind him all that much, he’s acceptable..he’s surely not as bad as some make him out to be here, he’s big and very athletic…other than Cesaro and Orton I can’t think of one other guy off the top of my head as I am typing this that is more athletic in the WWE
