The phenomenal first year of AJ Styles, by the numbers
At Royal Rumble 2016, AJ Styles made his stunning — some would say phenomenal — WWE debut in the 30-Superstar over-the-top-rope melee. At Royal Rumble 2017, he will defend the WWE Championship against John Cena. That’s an incredible year by any metric, and for a Superstar many thought would never cut it in WWE, The Phenomenal One has certainly made his naysayers eat their words. As AJ Styles soars into Year Two of his WWE tenure, take a look back at one of the greatest WWE rookie years in history through the numbers that defined it.
