AJ Styles did it, everyone. He won the WWE World Championship Sunday night at Backlash much to the fans’ surprise. Styles was able to claim the biggest prize in pro wrestling only eight months into debuting with the company. Styles is indeed on a roll, from winning his feud with John Cena at SummerSlam to now being the top dog on Smackdown.
Even before his Championship win fans wondered how Styles’ run in WWE would play out. Dream matches have come to fruition and Styles has shown even the casual fans of WWE why he is the best wrestler in the world. The Phenomenal One is better than ever, and at thirty-nine he is on top of his game. He has had an incredible run in WWE, and it doesn’t look to slow down anytime soon. That should put many of his fans at ease, especially since many felt he could have faltered in the company.
Even though Styles is on Smackdown, there are still some good options for him now that he is the WWE World Champion. If Shelton Benjamin wasn’t injured, I would pay top dollar to see what my personal dream match could become. I mean, can you imagine? However, I was still able to figure out five potential opponents for The Face That Runs the Place. Anything can happen in WWE and never say never.
