AJ says he is better than the Best in the World, he is the Phenomenal AJ Styles. Some people start to chant "You can't talk" or "CM Punk." It changes to "Yes" chants when he says this is just a job for him that just plain sucks. He says he has been shafted when he is the hardest working man in the building. He shouts to Mike Tenay and Dixie Carter that he deserves better. He says he has been the go-to guy for 11 years just to watch big starts being brought in and fail. He says he has carried the company on his shoulders when their "new direction" kept failing. AJ says he has learned to embrace being the go-to guy and make guys tap and send the fans home happy. He says he will win the BFG and go on to become the World Champion.
(This was easily AJ's best promo. He still isn't as polished as he needs to be and the promo dragged a little, but the intensity was there and he kept his southern accent under control for the most part. That will have to go if he is ever going to make it in WWE, if he ends up there. Or maybe it will work for him, who knows. Content-wise, he had the better "Pipebomb" of the week but the "other" AJ got him on delivery.)
Bobby Roode's music hits and he makes his entrance as we go to break.
