4. Kevin Owens
Ah, Kevin Owens. The best NXT call-up since The Shield.
A lot of people are going to fantasy-book AJ Styles against the best cruiserweight/junior heavyweight/high-flying/whatever wrestlers in the WWE. A lot of people are going to forget about guys like Kevin Owens.
But Kevin Owens is one of the best possible opponents for a guy like AJ Styles.
Kevin Owens can GO. He’s at his absolute best when paired up with a workhorse. Need an example? See his matches with Cena, Ambrose, and Sami Zayn.
Not only is Owens a great base for AJ’s flashy offense, he can actually keep up with AJ’s pace in the ring. They’ll have great, energetic matches that make AJ look like a goddamn superhero.
