AJ Styles Debuting At The WWE Royal Rumble?

– As PWMania.com reported earlier this week, AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows, and Shinsuke Nakamura told NJPW officials that they would be leaving for WWE.

Before word got out WWE was hopeful that Styles would be a surprise entrance in the 2016 30-Man Royal Rumble Battle Royal, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports. The company was hopeful that they could pull off a surprise similar to the one of Alberto Del Rio with no one knowing about it. With the news of Styles coming to the company, those plans could have been changed.

    Well.. now he is expected to debut in the Royal Rumble and we want it to happen. Now, on the other hand, with the gold at stake, how about HHH and Roman Reigns feud continue with no gold involved, and let someone else with the gold… AJ Styles. That would be a huge surprise! The fans would go frickin nuts!

      If AJ Styles won the title at the RR, it would be the best RR since Benoit.

      • JustusX

        The problem is, more than likely WWE will have RR win the Rumble, HHH comes back and starts a match at the end of Rumble, wins the belt, and we go back to the Rumble winner challenging the champ at WM.

          And at wm 32 rock v/s hhh

          • JustusX

            SMH….
            Did you read the last segment of my statement? The Rock will not wrestle for the WWE championship again. At WM it’s going to be Reigns vs. HHH.

      • Dominick Pritchett

        No that would be stupid if Aj styles won the title he’s just coming in and that would piss a lot of others off this is one of the reasons cm punk left

        • Hulkamania

          Are you kidding me? CM Punk pales in comparison to AJ Styles… AJ Styles deserves to win right away because he is the best talent that WWE would ever get their hands on.

        • pancho

          Stupid, eh? Well, I disagree. And I don’t give a shit about the rest of the roster. If you aren’t professional enough to take it then there’s the fucking door.

          • pancho

            Furthermore, CM PUnk is an asshole (and I am a fan).

          • Dominick Pritchett

            Lol nice to see there’s still some hardcore wrestling fan around but seriously we all know that’s never going to happen

        • Elliott Duce

          Not stupid at all! AJ styles is the best in the World and has been for the past decade plus, he’s worked incredibly hard and has achieved so much just not in the big one (WWE) it would be epic if he won the title in the royal rumble and he deserves being WWE champ at least once!

          • Dominick Pritchett

            I totally agree with you but you know it’s not going to happen right away but then again you’ll seem like the experts so I could very well be wrong….

  • JACRunner

    have styles win the title along with him, doc, nakamura and a few NXT call ups, joe and corbin are two examples, destroy ringside.

    • Hulkamania

      That would an insane finish for Rumble!

      • JACRunner

        could even go further. have it like hunter and reigns join forces similar to cena and michaels few years back and attempt to take the new faction down. culminating in them turning on one another and then you have their match at mania.

  • Boss

    Nothing would be a surprise with any of those 4 guys at this point. It still be exciting but def not a SHOCK anymore.

  • Saptarshi Paul Choudhury

    that will be stunner if aj styles and some others will be there in royal rumble it will be awesome
