While he might be full of himself, absolutely no one can deny Styles’ ability. Known the world over for his in-ring prowess, thrilling aerial maneuvers and supreme confidence, Styles has found success everywhere he’s traveled, accumulating an incredibly impressive résumé, capped off by sports-entertainment's most prestigious title, the WWE Championship. But, despite his tremendous talent and fierce intensity on the mic, his often underhanded tactics have overshadowed his achievements on more than one occasion.
Since making his long-awaited WWE debut in the 2016 Royal Rumble Match, The Phenomenal One has brawled with the likes of Chris Jericho, The Miz, Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens, Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler and has further solidified his reputation with important victories over John Cena.
Like him or loathe him, you can’t argue with success. While he may boast that he is both “The Face that Runs the Place” and “The Champ that Runs the Camp,” Styles is firmly placed at the top of the heap on SmackDown LIVE.
While technically Styles was fired on the March 14, 2017 edition of the blue brand for throwing SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon into a car window, he was reinstated the next week in order to take on Shane-O-Mac at The Ultimate Thrill Ride.
What’s next for him is anybody’s guess. The only safe bet is that it will be … yup, phenomenal.
