AJ Styles is in a group with Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko as the only guys who I have ever watched that could literally do ANYTHING in the wrestling ring (although Aries is getting pretty close). Anytime someone can make a youtube video of your 100 best moves, you know you are doing it right. Angle gets all the praise from TNA about being the best wrestler in the world and of his generation, when in reality and especially currently, AJ wipes the floor with Angle.
Their match at Slammiversary is a great example. Leading up to the match with the HOF induction, everyone talked about how great Angle was while AJ eventually rode out unannounced and put on an absolute clinic. He set Angle up perfectly, giving him tons of lift on his suplexes and setting up Angle's impressive counters. At the end of the day, Angle won the match and AJ's seemingly impressive push took a huge step back (big surprise I know).
AJ's clock is ticking. He just turned 36 with a ton of matches in second-rate facilities on his odometer. He is currently set up with what looks like a big push in a straight copy of Sting and the NWO in 1997, but knowing TNA, it is likely that he will never reach the top of the card and come October, Bully will be locked into a feud with Hogan, Hardy, Angle or some other less deserving competitor. Just remember that nobody deserves a main event slot more than AJ, only that nobody else seems to think so.
