At SmackDown LIVE's first pay-per-view event following the brand split, AJ Styles defeated Dean Ambrose to become the new WWE World Champion.

If you rewind to December 2015, Styles wasn't even an active member of the WWE roster. He made his debut January 2016 at the Royal Rumble, just eight months ago, which shows how quickly he has risen to the top of the company.

After feuds with Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, and more recently John Cena, Styles turned his attentions to the Lunatic Fringe as his quest for the title continued.

Styles fell short in his attempts during Reigns' title run, but after defeating Cena twice at recent PPV's, momentum was behind the challenger.

At Backlash, it was in fact Styles that prevailed, hitting the Styles Clash on Ambrose after dealing him a low blow whilst the referee was down on the mat.

Eight months ago he was making his debut with the company, and now he is the face that runs the place.

He claimed he was that even without the championship after defeating Cena at SummerSlam in August, and speaking of Cena, he has since reacted to Styles winning the title.

The veteran hasn't been seen on TV since his defeat, but he is expected to return soon to continue his feud with the new WWE World Champion.

You can see what Cena said about the new champion below.

He took to his official Twitter account to congratulate SmackDown LIVE for putting on a great pay-per-view, and he also congratulated the new champion of the show.

It is heavily reported that Cena will challenge Styles for the title at the brand's next PPV, which is No Mercy in October.
