Just like a Randy Orton RKO, hype and speculation surrounding AJ Styles vs Shawn Michaels came from out of nowhere.
However, last night it seems the WWE Champion rocked the entire WWE Universe by teasing a match with HBK at January's Royal Rumble.
Next year's Royal Rumble will mark AJ Styles' one-year anniversary with WWE, and what a year it has been. He's feuded with some of the biggest names in the company and he's currently holding the biggest belt in the company.

Speaking in a recent interview, Styles admitted that he would love to defend his title against The Heartbreak Kid at the Royal Rumble.
Styles spoke with SI.com and was asked about sharing a ring with the WWE legend, and the former TNA star revealed that he would love to go one-on-one with Michaels.
He said: “I would love the opportunity to wrestle him.
“I’d love to learn from him, but who’s to say if that’s going to happen. Right now, it’s all speculation and rumors that I’m finding out like everyone else is, but man, what a match that would be.”
Despite Styles being labelled as one of the best wrestlers of all time, it's clear to see that he thinks he can still learn from others, and who better to learn from than Shawn Michaels?
The interview comments were not all, however. Last night, Styles took to his official Twitter account and promoted a promo image of himself and Michaels.

It's safe to say, the WWE Universe lost their minds after seeing the picture and were quick to reply to The Phenomenal One.
Here are some of the best reactions from the WWE fans.
Whether AJ Styles vs Shawn Michaels will ever take place in a squared circle is still unknown, but what WWE do know is that it's a match everyone wants to see.
