3 Reasons Why AJ Styles Is Not Performing At WWE Payback 2023

8 months ago By Jhon Woug

 The Phenomenal One has never needed an introduction all throughout his life. He came in AJ Styles and to this day holds his own; something that Walter.. sorry Gunther, cannot say. It does go onto show you that he may not need any promotion or mileage to get the crowd going. Styles has always been main event material but of late he has been sidelined due to other talents making the cut. On that note here are 3 reasons why he may not perform at Payback:

    AJ Styles, the “Phenomenal One,” has undeniably carved a path of success in WWE since his debut in 2016. Styles has been dealing with a long list of injuries since his TNA days and fans are kept away from such details so that a Superstar does not look weak.

    His journey from being a renowned name in various wrestling promotions to becoming a WWE superstar has been nothing short of extraordinary.

    Styles quickly asserted himself as a top-tier talent, winning the WWE Championship on multiple occasions and achieving several other championship victories. His in-ring prowess is often described as second to none, consistently delivering breathtaking matches that showcase his versatility and athleticism.

    Beyond his championship accolades, AJ Styles has also played pivotal roles in some of WWE’s most engaging storylines and rivalries, including memorable feuds with John Cena, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins. His compelling character work and ability to connect with the audience have made him a fan favorite. But on a lighter note, should he make the card surprisingly like many others would as reported, here are 3 matches he might be a part of :

    During the Slim Jim Battle Royal, AJ Styles executed a Phenomenal Forearm that sent Omos stumbling backward towards the ropes. Seizing the opportunity, eight WWE Superstars capitalized on Omos’s stunned state, collaborating to hoist the colossal figure over the top rope and onto the arena floor. Since his elimination at SummerSlam, the Nigerian Giant has been conspicuously absent from WWE TV, possibly biding his time for a return with vengeance in mind against The Phenomenal One.

    Omos and Styles once formed a partnership, jointly clinching the RAW Tag Team Titles in 2021. However, the alliance disbanded by the year’s end, culminating in a showdown during the first RAW of 2022. This unresolved rivalry might resurface in 2023, potentially culminating in a high-stakes showdown at the Payback premium live event.

    AJ Styles has secured the United States Champion title on three occasions. In the year 2023, Styles is on the verge of a possible fourth reign as the U.S. Champion. Presently, Rey Mysterio holds the championship after unseating Austin Theory on the August 11, 2023, episode of SmackDown. Following his triumphant streak of three consecutive singles victories against Karrion Kross, Styles appears to be setting his sights on capturing the championship gold instead of extending his rivalry with Karrion Kross. Add Austin Theory into the mix and chaos is sure to ensue.

    On the recent episode of Smackdown, AJ Styles’ feud with Karrion Kross appears to have reached its conclusion during their last encounter. It’s evident that Styles has shifted his focus towards larger objectives. On SmackDown, he headlined against Solo Sikoa, an event disrupted by the unexpected interference of Jimmy Uso and Paul Heyman.

    Styles didn’t hold back in criticizing Uso for his negative attitude towards both fellow wrestlers and backstage personnel. While attempting to reason with Jimmy, Solo Sikoa intervened, only to be dismissed by Uso. The Phenomenal One didn’t shy away from calling out The Bloodline for their dominance and asserted his intention to bring them down a notch.

    Earlier, Styles found himself embroiled in a heated argument with The Good Brothers, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, along with Mia Yim. His actions as he stormed out of the scene appeared to have left the other faction members displeased, raising concerns of potential fractures within the group.

    AJ Styles’ success isn’t limited to the ring; his merchandise sales have consistently ranked among the company’s best. His impact on WWE extends beyond championships, leaving an indelible mark on the wrestling industry, solidifying his status as one of the most accomplished and celebrated performers of his generation. Get ready to embark on an exhilarating ride as we eagerly anticipate the thrilling twists and turns that lie ahead for The Phenomenal One!
