AJ Styles in WWE? Well, he was once, anyway

Not now, and probably not in the future, but this week's Five Things with Tom Phillips takes us back to a time when the Phenomenal One had a match with the biggest pro wrestling promotion in history.

The video give you a glimpse of AJ Styles vs. The Hurricane on Jakked shortly after the fall of WCW, where AJ was on the payroll when the company was absorbed into the McMahon empire. Styles is the only active wrestler profiled in this video, which once again shows's willingness to talk openly about Ring of Honor (ROH) affiliated wrestlers.

Rounding out this five-pack were:

  • Freebirds Buddy Roberts & Terry Gordy's one month stint with Michael Hayes in 1984
  • Kevin Von Erich being 1 - 0 at Madison Square Garden due to a January 1980 appearance for WWF
  • Buff Bagwell's infamous debut in a championship match against Booker T
  • The Rock 'n' Roll Express defending the SMW Tag Team titles at Survivor Series in 1993
