During his Twitch stream, A.J. Styles revealed that he thinks his lengthy title run ended in 2018 because the WWE didn’t think people would want to see a rematch between he and Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Here’s what he had to say:
I think the reason why you saw that happen was because you already saw Brock Lesnar / AJ Styles and — oh man, I’m just not going to go there … Not you guys, I’m sure you guys would like to have seen the rematch of AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar but [WWE] didn’t think anyone else would.
