If not for Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson’s interference, AJ Styles might have been able to defeat Roman Reigns one-on-one at Extreme Rules. If not for their absence on Monday, however, he might be headed to Money in the Bank. Ironic, isn’t it? Now, it’s Kevin Owens who’ll head to Las Vegas after Styles more or less dissolved The Club and elected to go it alone against The Prizefighter.
He probably regretted that decision when all was said and done, because Owens was a house on fire from the jump. Styles was hardly a slouch himself, attempting to tap into the savagery he utilized at Extreme Rules. Owens was ready to match him there, ultimately seizing victory by superkicking the ropes out from under Styles as he prepped for the Phenomenal Forearm. A stunned Styles was easy picking for the Pop-up Powerbomb moments later, but would that have happened with his good brothers by his side? It’s hard to say, but definitely some food for thought.
