Re: What is it about AJ Styles matches that are not clicking when should be huge matches
He's not a good storytelling. He used to get by on flashy moves but he's old and doesn't have that anymore.
I've honestly never thought of Styles as anything more than capable. He has very few matches that I go back and watch. Even the Cena and Brock matches are NOT WORTH rewatching.
His best match ever is probably the one he had with Suzuki and it lasted like what, 10 minutes?
And for like the past 2 or 3 years every match he has is this plodding, slow, boring bowl of bland spaghetti where he does a few strikes, rests, strikes, rests and then does a ushigaroshi, forearm or styles clash as the only interesting things. He never conveys interesting emotion, or gets the crowd pumped or... Fuck, anything
I've been biting my tongue for some reason but if I'm being honest with myself, AJ Styles sucks in the ring. And the next time you see a dream match on paper involving him, remember this thread because it'll disappoint
