AJ Styles makes his WWE debut at the Royal Rumble

If you’re a wrestling fan who’s only experience with the genre is what occurs on WWE television, the name AJ Styles might be foreign to you. The Gainesville, Georgia native, at 38 years old, is arguably the best wrestler on the planet today.

The 18 year veteran has been tearing it up in Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling for the past two years. Styles has been involved in a plethora of match of the year candidates over his career. His most recent was on January 4th against the Shinsuke Nakamura at Wrestle Kingdom 10.

Much to WWE’s credit, they didn’t change a thing about his character. They went out of their way to promote him as a big deal based on his illustrious past, and even made reference to the internet rumors of his pending arrival. This is something WWE rarely does today.
