Admit It: WWE is Not Burying AJ Styles


“The Phenomenal” AJ Styles walked into his first WrestleMania with a 2 – 1 record versus his opponent, “Y2J” Chris Jericho. Many within the Internet Wrestling Community assumed Styles would win.

He didn’t.

Despite having watched a very entertaining, back-and-forth match, social networking and comment sections lit up with negative responses. They said WWE was attempting to discredit Styles’ reputation. They said WWE was out to make Styles look inferior. They said Styles wasn’t being used properly by WWE’s creative team.


On Monday Night Raw following WrestleMania 32, Styles won a fatal four-way match versus Jericho, Kevin Owens, and Cesaro to become #1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, a title currently held by Roman Reigns.

More negative responses followed.

WWE is just using Styles to boost the value of Reigns’ championship run, they said. They’re making AJ look weak, they said. This just proves WWE is burying Styles, they said.

AJ Styles debuted in WWE as the #3 entrant of the 2016 Royal Rumble, the first time the title was on the line in the 30-man over-the-top-rope match. Styles arrived as a title contender.


The next night on Raw he defeats Jericho - a 9-time Intercontinental Champion, 6-time World Heavyweight Champion, and the first ever Undisputed Champion. This match kicked off their feud.

After losing a televised match to one of the most decorated Superstars in the history of WWE, Styles makes Jericho tap out during their initial rubber match at Fastlane, taking that 2-matches-to-1 lead.

The pair set aside their differences and teamed briefly, getting a shot at the WWE Tag Team Championship. A failed attempt rekindled their rivalry after Jericho angrily attacked Styles post-match. This led to their match at Mania.


If you watched Payback, you witnessed a great match between Styles and Reigns. And, yes, AJ lost his 2nd world championship opportunity since arriving in WWE…just this past January. His 3rd opportunity happens May 22nd at WWE Extreme Rules.

The IWC should consider removing their shades. AJ Styles’ WWE future looks bright, not buried. Stop griping and enjoy the glow.
