AJ Styles has been on fire since joining the WWE back in January at the Royal Rumble, and now he has reached the mountain top of the biggest wrestling company in the world.
Nobody ever thought that the staple of TNA would arrive in the WWE, much less he would become the WWE champion.
But, that's exactly what happened when The Phenomenal One defeated Dean Ambrose for the gold this past Sunday at WWE Backlash.

So, now that the self-proclaimed "Champ that runs the camp" is on top, what is in store for him?
NODQ.com are reporting that Styles is expected to have a lengthy title run and isn’t meant to be dropping the strap anytime soon.
WWE officials are very happy with AJ and have been since he debuted. This probably goes even beyond his stellar in-ring work; the former Bullet Club member was reported to have been amongst the top-sellers in merchandise.
It was announced on Smackdown Live this week that John Cena and Dean Ambrose will challenge Styles for his title at the No Mercy pay-per-view and Cena is gunning for his 16th world title.
Even thought the Leader of the Cenation has been teasing that he wants to tie Ric Flair’s record for title wins, NODQ.com insists that Cena is expected to take time off from WWE shortly after the No Mercy event.
There would be no value in having a champion off television, even if the company has done that with Brock Lesnar and The Rock in the past.
Styles is one of the hottest performers in the company right now and the WWE would be wise to take full advantage of 39-year-old's momentum.
