WWE has had some of the biggest names in the pro wrestling and sports entertainment industry, and among them is The Phenomenal AJ Styles. Once the leader of the much-revered Bullet Club faction, Styles has been a veteran in WWE and has also won championship gold throughout his run. The Wrestler is currently having a heel-ish and could be next in line as a challenger for the Undisputed Universal Championship to Cody Rhodes. AJ has remained elusive of a title reign for a while now, but he has been catapulted into the championship page once again. However, the Phenomenal One has indicated that he could be in his final days as a wrestler.
