AJ Styles is one of the biggest stars in WWE currently and has been one of the leading names on SmackDown, which he proudly calls as the house that he built.
Styles had a match against the current No.1 contender for the WWE Championship, Jey Uso, and came up short against the tag-team specialist.
This came as a huge surprise to many, as Styles losing to Uso clean is an unexpected outcome. A few fans felt that Styles gave Uso a rub, as he could be moving to RAW in the draft.
Styles took to his Twitch stream and explained the outcome. Styles felt that his loss against Jey is part of a proper story that is being told and fans shouldn’t be upset at this booking.
“Listen, there’s a story that needs to be told here. That story is that Jey Uso is not to be played with. Don’t make this guy mad. He can go. He can really go. There’s no doubt about that. It’s a business and this is entertainment. I’m not about getting myself over every time. What good is it for me to get over if the company doesn’t benefit from it? Then nobody wins.”
Styles is a company man through and through, and proved it yet again with his performance against the former Tag Team Champion.
