Bengaluru, Dec 11: AJ Styles fans might be in shock after seeing the headline of the news. He is someone who indeed had an extremely phenomenal year since his debut in this year's Royal Rumble PPV. Ever since the WWE Draft took place in July he's been the mainstay on the Smackdown brand.
In fact, it was due to his presence WWE was able to make up the hiatus of John Cena. His rivalry with Dean Ambrose for the WWE World title has been the main event storyline since after WWE Summerslam was over. He' has come out victorious in the feud and is looking to get some fresh feud.
Now, Vince McMahon is much impressed by the works of Styles. He has liked the work ethics of Styles so much that he is thinking of bringing him to the flagship show of WWE i.e. on Monday Night Raw.
According to news of Wrestling World News, he is thinking of moving Styles on Raw, next year.
There's no information on how the switch will take place but presumably, the WWE Draft will be taking place next year during May where Styles will be shifting brands.
This might be doing a favor to the red brand since McMahon was seriously concerned about the flagship show's tv rating, for the entire year.
The boss was extremely happy with Styles' works during his feud with John Cena. It was a show-stealer match at WWE Summerslam in which the Phenomenal One has defeated the franchise player of the WWE.
He followed it up by defeating both Cena and Ambrose in a championship match at No Mercy. This suggests how much WWE Creative is rooting for him at this time.
Plus, he gets a huge ovation from the crowd wherever he goes despite his heel character. No one can deny his acceptability among the masses and this is the valid reason for shifting him to the flagship show.
He can get more rivalries around there. In turn, someone like Seth Rollins can be brought to the Smackdown to garner attention.
