AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Don't see AJ getting much love on here anymore, but he has been terrific the last few weeks as a heel. Last week burying Michael Cole, and generally having a great promo, and yesterday, his Stone Cold impersonation was fucking hilarious, and the crowd was super into him.

He's low-key been the glue that's kept RAW together the past few weeks, and I think he's starting to find his groove again after the stale baby face run he had for a while.

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Styles as a heel is great, I was saying this months ago. As a face, I don't understand why he's over but he's way more fun as a jackass

But that's WWE for you. Faces are generic smiling corporate stooges who are "just proud to represent the WWE universe" while heels get to have actual personalities

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Heels are allowed to have fun. Faces are booked like idiots who constantly get beaten up and say stupid things. Not really shocking that one is would be preferred over the other by any talent.

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Yes I will admit Styles is great as a heel but question is how long will this last?

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Probably the best guy in the company all things considered.

When Rollins said he was the BITW, the crowd booed and split into CM Punk and AJ Styles chants

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

He's always been amazing as a heel. I'm not saying he can't be a great face but it's very difficult being an entertaining face with WWE's booking. Being a heel, however, comes naturally to AJ.

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Itís the MO in WWE. The heels have charismatic personalities and are engaging and witty on the mic, but never win important matches and if somehow they do, they cheat.

The faces are boring af, happy go lucky morons that are either always Supermen that overcome all odds are underdogs that overcome everything.

Thatís it. Thatís all they know how to book. But, yeah AJ and The Club have been highly entertaining.

Re: AJ Styles Has Been Awesome As a Heel

Definitely think AJ is the best in the world at the moment considering all things.

Yeah, but booking is hurting him. He was heavily featured on RAW, but had his a** handed to him all night long (as well as after the show went off the air). He hasn't done enough dastardly things yet in this current heel run for the fans to get satisfaction out of seeing him get his a** handed to him the whole show.

With the Austin thing...if Austin was going to come back out, they should have had AJ and the OC do something to him and then the show could have ended with him eating a stunner as payback.

Yeah he was great last night. When he came out and started interacting with Austin Rollins and Braun practically disappeared.
