WWE: AJ Styles provides possibility which champion he would challenge if he wins the Royal Rumble Match

WWE News: This Sunday the Royal Rumble will take place in the WWE ThunderDome without fans in person but will have fans virtually.

AJ Styles recently appeared on Talking Smack with Kayla Braxton and Paul Heyman and was asked which champion he would challenge if he wins the Royal Rumble Match.

Styles had this to say about the championship he would be coming after if he wins the Royal Rumble:

“The Royal Rumble is Sunday, and I’m looking forward to it. I’ve got a plan, a good plan. I’ve never won the Royal Rumble before. Now mind you, I’ve only been in two. This one, I will win! And when I do, I will be going after a championship. [It could be] the WWE Championship or the Universal Championship. I have not yet decided. But when I do, I’ll let you know.”

Paul Heyman noted that Roman Reigns could be a possibility if Styles wins and Reigns and Styles do have a previous history:

“See, that interests me. I have a ventured interest in your answer because you have faced Roman Reigns before, and Roman Reigns has defeated you before. In fact, the impossible mountain for you to climb, sir, has been Roman Reigns … You have been a terror since you’ve been on Monday Night RAW. So, the way I would view this is that if — when — you win the Royal Rumble, you can announce this Monday which one you’re going to go after; Drew McIntyre or Goldberg, whoever wins that match. Or you could wait till Friday and show up on SmackDown…I give you my word that this is not a prediction; this is a spoiler: The main event of WrestleMania features Roman Reigns. I would like that match to happen for selfish reasons, sir. You are recognized around the world as the preeminent and the best in-ring performer of this generation. Roman Reigns cannot claim to be the best in-ring performer of this generation until he steps into the ring with AJ Styles and defeats AJ Styles. When AJ Styles wins the Royal Rumble, and the main event is Roman Reigns versus AJ Styles, that’s not just a box office [match], it’s box office platinum.”

Styles did state that pursuing Roman Reigns would be a fun chase but if Heyman loses his job it would be better:

“I agree with that! But it’s still my decision. And I will make that decision either Monday or Friday. Let’s just say I choose to go after the Universal Championship, and I beat Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, and he isn’t at the head of the table or the alpha anymore. What that means, ultimately, is that you would be out of a job. Nothing would make me happier than to see you out of a job.”
