Plans were definitely subject to change ahead of Monday Night Raw with Omos leaving to fly home before the show started despite being advertised for a match.
On the December 20th episode of Monday Night Raw, the union between AJ Styles and Omos came to a brutal end.
The former Raw Tag Team Champions were 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 that 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 up the former WWE Champion. After the match, Styles finally lost it, calling Omos a piece of trash causing the dissension 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.
The two men were set to go one-on-one on the 27th of December edition of Raw but instead, AJ Styles ended up taking on and defeating Apollo Crews in a match.
A new report from PWInsider.com has shed light on the scrapped match by saying that Omos had left Raw’s home city for the night, Detroit, and flown home before the show had even begun. The two men had previously faced each other at the Boxing Day live event in Madison Square Garden.
