In this piece, we are going to take a look at the two reasons why involving AJ Styles in the Universal Championship match will be good and two reasons why it will not be a good idea.
#4 Good - Puts AJ Styles where he belongs
Since his switch from SmackDown Live to Raw, AJ Styles has been tipped to win the Universal Championship. So far, he hasn't done that but it seems only a matter of time before he picks up the title.
Styles is a top heel on the Red Brand and he simply belongs at the very top. He isn't a mid-card Superstar by any means. By involving him in the Universal Championship picture, WWE is simply putting him where he belongs.
Styles will only enhance the valuation of the Universal Title as he did with the WWE Championship at SmackDown. The Phenomenal One has always had his eyes on the top prize of the Red Brand and it's about time he wins it.
