AJ Styles lost his third-straight WWE pay-per-view when he failed to defeat Roman Reigns at Extreme Rules last Sunday. According to the latest WWE rumors, many fans think that Styles is getting buried but here is the latest update on the plans for The Phenomenal One.
The former TNA and NJPW star made his WWE debut last January when he was a surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble. He went on to have a program with Chris Jericho but he got defeated in his WrestleMania debut. Nonetheless, he won his feud with Jericho and instantly became the No. 1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight championship.
However, Styles lost both times at Payback and Extreme Rules against Reigns and The Club with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows disbanded in the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. Many fans are now speculating that the WWE is burying him, as he also lost to Kevin Owens on Raw in a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match.
