WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has put over AJ Styles as one of the best talents in professional wrestling in his latest blog, saying, “Styles, for my money, is the best in ring talent in the business today” this after watching Sunday’s WWE TLC main event which featured Styles vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Championship. He went on to say, “AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose was, arguably, as strong a bout as WWE has had in 2016 and the two, skilled performers ability to utilize all the toys of a TLC match were incredible.”

Ross went on to say he believes Styles is the second coming of the legendary Shawn Michaels and they both possess natural, innate timing that can’t be taught.

Ross noted that Styles is the type of athlete that WWE could build a brand around and he can see Ambrose turning heel sooner than later.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
