Re: when and how will AJ Styles return?

I really hope this time he returns with something new and different. Hopefully a new look and a legit heel. Now be called the Phenom for short.Which feels more heel ish.

If he does it right it could be huge. He has gotten beyond boring.

Re: when and how will AJ Styles return?

Unfortunately AJ doesn't have the demeanor or mic skills to make a heel run work. He's had many attempts, none of which were successful. Not even with the arrogant Ric Flair as his mouthpiece, he just can't pull "heel" off very well.

Sure he could pull a cheap betrayal and gain an instant surge of heat from the crowd, but he has never been able to do anything past that.

I don't mind him being more 'dark', but I agree with whomever compared him to Sting. If he comes back to rally the forces of TNA against A&E I think it could work. But TNA needs to be smart, instead of just giving away matches and having clusterf*** mob battles, they need to do it like Sting. Sting and Hogan built their match over the course of an ENTIRE YEAR, with no contact. ECW did the same, I think it was Tazz and Sabu?

TNA needs to build a huge momentum THEN cash it in, not blow it all in one night's worth of iMPACT!. These things take time.

I miss AJ already too. Can't wait to have him back once he is ready. New character in toe.

Sting 97 circa.

comes around lockdown and points at the top guy and leaves, wins the x-title at dest x / win the bfg series and beat aries for his last title reign.

Re: when and how will AJ Styles return?

Personally I hope they reintroduce him as either a darker character
(same as so many others here) or maybe,
give him a kind of an Eddie inspired character,
a loveable cheat.
I'm not too sure wether it would work, but i think
AJ - being so popular with the fans - would
probably stand a better chance of getting that
kind of a gimmick over, without getting 'you stole
Eddies gimmick'-heat.

As for the booking/feud side of things, I would
like to see him spending a year or so dominating
the x-division. AJ feuding over the X-title with the
rest of the division, and maybe a couple of
fresh guys would kickstart the X-division, and,
if 'option c' still exists in the new PPV structure
that could be his way to get a title shot
at BFG - hopefully in that AJ v AA dream match.

Re: when and how will AJ Styles return?

Longish break then he'll come back, still as a face but someone who has something to prove and is utterly focused on getting the title back and proving himself.

This may mean he'll be a darker face than we are used to (maybe refusing to run in and help other faces if they're in trouble, refusing pleas from Dixie or whoever to help out with whatever turmoil is going on at the time). But essentially he won't be a heel and he'll still be a good guy. He'll just be utterly focused on achieving his goal and be a "man on a mission" - too intent on proving himself to bother with whatever else is going on around him.

He'll also be booked strong with winning streak to show his fight back from his "Year of Hell."

Hopefully, by the time he gets to contender level, Aries will be champ again and we can see the much-anticipated feud between a strongly booked, refreshed AJ and good ol' A Double.

Re: when and how will AJ Styles return?

As far as what I'd like to see....

While the above is going on, Roode and Aries squabble with whoever is Champ at the time over who becomes Champ and Daniels flukes getting the belt via Option C (suits his devious character plus I want Daniels to get the belt, just once). Cue Daniels / Aries / Roode squabbling for a couple of months (and we get solid gold Daniels promos) while AJ tears up the ranks as a rapidly rising threat. Then (and yes - I know this means another Daniels / AJ fight but it has to be the last one!), AJ swipes the title off Daniels leading to a face Champ run with Roode, Aries, Bully (name heel of choice) coming to get it thereafter.

I know a lot of people will moan about another AJ/Daniels match, but if AJ rises from seemingly nowhere and the writing is done so that AJ is so focused he's not even bothered that it's Daniels, he just wants the belt, whoever has it, it would work.

Re: when and how will AJ Styles return?

The same way Sting returned Impact or two ago. Simply walking in from the crowd.
