WWE continues to hype this possible contest.
That dream match would be between former World Heavyweight Champion Rey Mysterio and current WWE Champion AJ Styles.
If you recall, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion caused a stir on social media and the way he did that was by posting a possible dream match with one popular champion. Mysterio understands how to get fans of sports entertainment talking.
Styles made his name known while in TNA Wrestling, now known as Impact Wrestling, from 2002–2013.
While in the promotion, Styles held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship three times and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship twice. Also, he was the first holder of the X Division Championship, a title he held six times.
Styles was the first professional wrestler ever to complete the TNA Triple Crown (five times) and the TNA Grand Slam (two times). Styles accomplishments continued from there.
He appeared in Ring of Honor (ROH) from 2002–2006 where he became the first ROH Pure Champion.
In 2014, Styles signed with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and won his first of two IWGP Heavyweight Championships in his debut match with the company.
Styles first appeared on WWE television in 2002 but turned down a developmental contract he was offered by the company.
He signed a multi-year contract with WWE fourteen years later in January 2016 and made his re-debut at that month's Royal Rumble.
After appearing at his first WrestleMania that April against Chris Jericho, Styles headlined multiple pay-per-view events and won winning WWE Championship at Backlash in September.
He held the title up until 2017's edition of the Royal Rumble in January. Styles has also won the United States Championship twice.
Mysterio is best known for his appearances with ECW, WCW, and WWE between 1995 and 2015.
He had a decorated career in his professional wrestling career as he has won WWE's World Heavyweight Title, the WWE Title, WWE Cruiserweight Title, WCW World Tag Team Title, WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Title, WWC World Junior Heavyweight Title, WWE Tag Team Title, and WWE Intercontinental Title.
Mysterio made a surprise appearance in the match. The expectation is that Mysterio will sign some kind of a deal, maybe in 2019 if not this year, with WWE.
The deal will likely be a part-time deal, similar to the deals Chris Jericho has worked in the past.
WWE posted this video looking at the potential dream match between Mysterio and Styles to their YouTube channel, which you can watch here.
