‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles has named the two WWE Superstars he thinks has the most potential to be main event talent.
Arguably one of the greatest wrestlers in the world today, the former WWE Champion has been in and around the main event scene since joining the company at the 2015 Royal Rumble. ]
From Roman Reigns to Dean Ambrose, The Undertaker to Chris Jericho, Styles has done battle with just about every huge name that has passed through the company’s doors.
Now, the master of the Styles Clash has spoken to WWE India about those coming up underneath him and who he thinks has huge potential:
“Riddle, as we call him now. He’s definitely a talent that you need to watch in the future. He’s gonna be a huge star. Keith Lee is another one of those guys who’s just super powerful and can do things that a big man shouldn’t be able to do. Number three, that’s a tough one. Who was the number three guy? It makes me wonder if it’s a guy that could be at NXT or has not yet blossomed and shown his true potential. I’m not sure who that is. So the number three, we’re gonna give a question mark.”
While Styles sees Riddle as a main event star, the same cannot be said for Vince McMahon who has been said to be keen on ‘The Original Bro’, but does not see him as a top tier star as he doesn’t understand the gimmick.
Keith Lee is in the midst of a major singles push on Monday Night Raw and will challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship on the January 4 edition of the red brand.
