AJ Styles is convinced that if he, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson could take out the newly reformed Shield.
The former WWE United States Champion spoke with Planeta Wrestling this week and said Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view was the best show SmackDown put on this year. Reacting to Sami Zayn aligning himself with Kevin Owens, AJ stated once again that he’s willing to team with Shane McMahon to battle Owens and Zayn.
“Shane and I have got a lot of respect for each other especially after WrestleMania, and the guy’s a stud, so you’ve got to respect that about him,” said Styles. “I’ve never really liked Kevin Owens and now that Sami Zayn has joined his crew, it doesn’t make me like Sami Zayn anymore. So you never know, it may happen.”
This partnership is expected to take place next month at Survivor Series as part of a Team Shane vs. Team Owens elimination match.
Of course, the big news of the week is the reunion of The Shield. Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will have their hands full at TLC next weekend when they battle Braun Strowman, The Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus. After that, they might be crossing paths with The Club.
When asked about a possible Club vs. Shield showdown, Styles said he’d love to get back together with his ‘good brothers’ and is certain his crew would come out on top.
“Absolutely,” he said about The Club’s ability to hang with The Shield. “I think that if Gallows and Anderson and I got together, we would dominate just like we’ve done before. There’s no doubt about it.”
