AJ Styles' second and historic 371-day reign as WWE Champion finally came to an end this past Tuesday night on SmackDown Live when 'The Phenomenal One' lost his title in shocking fashion to Daniel Bryan.

Having already secured a rematch against Brock Lesnar at the upcoming Survivor Series pay-per-view, Styles, unfortunately, was in for a shock on Tuesday night, as not only did he lose the WWE Championship but his defeat also led to a surprising heel turn from Daniel Bryan.

Now that Styles' legendary WWE Title reign has finally come to an end, the WWE Universe has raised several questions regarding what's next for 'The Phenomenal One'? Does he get an immediate rematch for the WWE Title or is he going to be taking some time off from in-ring competition for that matter?

Regardless of what the answer is, one thing is for sure that ever since Styles made his WWE debut two years ago, the former multi-time World Champion has established himself as a fan favourite and is one of the biggest stars' on the roster. Therefore, it'll be an absolute crime if we opted not to explore what the future holds for 'The Phenomenal One' and in this article, I'll provide an in-depth look regarding the 5 next possible directions for AJ Styles in WWE.

As aforementioned, AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan once again squared-off against each other this week on SmackDown Live and two superstars' put together another instant classic with the WWE Championship on the line. Bryan, who after hitting a low-blow on Styles, went on to capture the WWE Title in shocking fashion and I'm pretty sure sooner rather than later, 'The Phenomenal One' will invoke his rematch clause.

Therefore, a trilogy match between Styles and Bryan could be on the cards for either the final pay-per-view of the year, TLC or the two could either lock horns at the Royal Rumble show in January 2019.
