AJ Styles has enjoyed a lot of success since he arrived in the WWE. If you are wondering just how big of a star he was before he signed with the company back in January of 2016, you just need to watch the Royal Rumble from the same year and to hear that reaction from the crowd that he got even though it was his first appearance for the WWE.
He was a heel, but the fans couldn’t help themselves but cheer for the guy as he is one of the best wrestlers in the world, if not the best there is right now. Fans are supporting him to the fullest and he is going to be a big-time piece for this company going forward.
He signed at the same time when the rumors about Shinsuke Nakamura coming to the company were starting swirling around. Those ended up being true as Nakamura made his NXT debut at the Wrestlemania weekend against Sami Zayn. Ever since then, the fans have been dreaming about the two facing each other at the grandest stage of them all in order to top what they did at the Wrestle Kingdom when they were working for NJPW.
When it comes to AJ’s dream matches at Wrestlemania, here is what he had to say.
“I’m picking Shinsuke. Sorry, that’s nothing on Finn Balor. The reason why I say this is because, at Wrestlemania, it’s not going to happen with Finn Balor and I. Why? Because he’s on Raw. Shinsuke’s my best chance of getting into that main event picture at Wrestlemania, that’s why he wins the championship. I hope he wins it so I can get there and wrestle him at Wrestlemania.”
