Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)
Judging by the Dontaku booking, one thing is sure - we won't be getting great **** matches from Styles, not in this enviroment. It's obvious he's automatically positioned beneath the Top 3. They present him as a skilled gaijin, but not skilled enough to go over the big guns clean, he ain't no monster like Vader, Norton, Sapp or Lesnar to maul through the roster. Therefore he needs major assistance from his unit to win big matches. Now, that's fine and all, I'm a big Styles fan, but in that kind of booking, you could easily put Karl or Fale on AJ's place, since your Bullet Club guy wins by cheating anyway. Don't know why they bothered with AJ in that case, because New Japan fans are way more familiar with Karl, for example. But AJ brings few more international eyes to the product, I guess, so that's the point, and at the same time the management is confident enough that domestic numbers will not suffer.
