WWE officials might be moving two superstars to different brands.
Those stars are current WWE Champion AJ Styles and former Universal Champion Seth Rollins.
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.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Styles could be moved over to the Raw brand after WrestleMania to help freshen up matches. Also, there is a feeling that Roman Reigns has wrestled all of the top names on Raw and with Styles being moved over to the brand, it could give him some fresh faces to wrestle.
By allowing Styles to move to the Raw brand, SmackDown Live would need someone to replace him, which would be Rollins. They could be building him up to make him the face of SmackDown.
What are your thoughts on the sports entertainment company and its chairman Vince McMahon moving Rollins to SmackDown Live while Styles goes to the flagship show of the company, Monday Night Raw? Is this a good or bad idea? Have YOUR say in the comments section below and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
