6. Sami Zayn
AJ would have to be the heel for this one to work, because I simply cannot root against Sami Zayn. He’s too good, and he’s too goddamn lovable.
That said? I’d love to see a vicious heel AJ Styles beat the everloving shit out of Zayn. The sympathy they would elicit from the crowd would be amazing. The comeback? Off the charts. You could put this match in front of any crowd, and it would steal the show. Period.
I could see these guys battling for the Intercontinental championship on a major show. Summerslam, perhaps? That’d be worth your $9.99, all on its own.
