When AJ Styles defeated Jinder Mahal to win the WWE championship last month, he didn’t just take the title from him — he also took his spot in a match against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Sure, he would have done the same as Styles and lost, but getting to work with Lesnar is no small feat.
As he tells Wrestling Inc, he’s going to make sure it happens anyway:
"I found the day of, when we got to Manchester. To be honest, I was a little disappointed, I was looking forward to that match. But I know that match is going to happen sometime in the future, and it is up to me to make sure that it happens. And I'm going to make sure that it happens. Either; as I said earlier, there are two ways you can take it. You can either say you're going to make it happen, or write and do whatever it takes to get there, or you can pour out, boohoo, and blame someone else. But what is meant to be, was meant to be, it will be. And I'm going to make sure that it becomes."
That’s probably just a good way to keep himself motivated as opposed to a realistic goal. Then again, there was a time the idea of Mahal winning the WWE championship sounded silly too.
You never know.
