For some time now, rumors have been making the rounds that AJ Styles could be coming to WWE. Reports have been posted from various media outlets saying he's likely headed to the one company he's never had a run with, and even WWE has gotten in on the fun. That includes John Cena, of all people, posting about Styles on his Instagram today.
Now, PW Insider is reporting that it is now confirmed that Styles will be debuting for WWE soon, possibly at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) this Sun., Jan. 24, 2016, at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. However, he could debut at Monday Night Raw or SmackDown in the days after, as he's scheduled to be at both shows.
It makes sense to debut him as a surprise participant in the Royal Rumble, both because it satisfies the thirst for a big surprise and because he spent so much of his career working for TNA in the area.
Either way, it looks like Styles to WWE is finally a done deal and we can expect to see him much sooner rather than later.
