5 next possible directions for AJ Styles after losing the WWE Championship
#4 AJ Styles wins the Mixed Match Challenge and secures the #30 spot at the Royal Rumble
So the winner of this year's Mixed Match Challenge will be awarded a unique opportunity and will get to enter the Royal Rumble match at #30, meaning that both Charlotte Flair and his tag team partner AJ Styles, who are currently undefeated in the MMC, could very well be in contention of being the final entrant of this year's Mixed Match Challenge.
After missing out on last year's Royal Rumble match, due to being the WWE Champion, Styles will now look to enter his second ever Rumble match. If 'The Phenomenal One' does turn out to be the final entrant in next year's Royal Rumble match then there are pretty strong chances that he might just go on to win the entire thing and eventually securing a spot at the WrestleMania 35 main event.
With Roman Reigns currently battling leukaemia, WWE will be in a desperate need of a major star who is capable enough of main eventing their biggest show of the year and what better way other than having AJ Styles headline 'Mania 35 alongside someone like Brock Lesnar.
