WWE Champion AJ Styles is arguably the best professional wrestler in the world today. Styles tore up the indy scene before signing with WWE, where he is a two-time and current WWE Champion. Styles will defend his championship against Daniel Bryan at the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. Bryan earned the opportunity by defeating The Miz at WWE Super Show-Down in Australia this past weekend.
WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray took to Busted Open Radio and offered his thoughts on “The Phenomenal One.” Ray pointed out that Styles’ matches in WWE are usually towards the middle of the card on pay-per-views. He offered an explanation as to why he thinks that is:
“When they know there’s a match that will steal the show but they don’t want that match to overshadow any other match, they put it in the middle of the show,” Ray said. “I can tell you that from personal experience.
“I went through this battle years ago – me, D-Von, Edge, Christian, Matt and Jeff. We were always in the middle of the show. He’s a big enough star to put on the cover of the video game…They do have faith in AJ, but with the matches you know his is gonna blow everyone else away.”
