The break-up of AJ Styles and Omos was reportedly sped up as there are “significant plans” for both stars in the very near future.
On the December 20th episode of Monday Night Raw the union between AJ Styles and Omos came to a brutal end.
The former Tag Champions were the latest guests on Miz TV, with AJ Styles determined to present a united front, but The Miz had other ideas. After Styles talked up his protégé and the partnership, Miz said that the giant stood between the two men had confided in him that he was less than happy in his role.
Miz continued to stir the pot, taking shots at Styles for not arriving in WWE until 15 years into his career. Just as it looked like Omos was going to talk, the segment was interrupted by The Mysterios setting up a tag team match.
During the bout, Styles tried to tag Omos in, but the giant turned away, allowing Rey Mysterio to roll the former World Champion. After the match, Styles finally lost it, calling Omos a piece of trash causing the dissention to get physical. Styles threw all he could at his now-former partner, before lining up a Phenomenal Forearm. However, Omos grabbed Styles from the top rope, delivering a press slam.
Before leaving, the former college basketball star said that the next time that Styles sees him will be in a match.
According to a new report from Wrestle Votes, the implosion of the former Tag Team Champions was sped up with both men heading for big things in early 2022.
If it felt like they sped up the Omos & AJ Styles spilt, it’s because they did. Source says both superstars have significant plans in early 2022, and wanted any type of blow off program done prior to the major Rumble & Mania events.

AJ Styles has quickly moved on from the break-up by appearing on the latest edition of NXT 2.0 to confront Grayson Waller. The young upstart had earlier criticised Styles on social media, before saying that he would be waiting for the former World Champion once Omos was done with him.
