• Major Reason Behind AJ Styles Having Issues With Paul Heyman
As we noted earlier, AJ Styles’ move to SmackDown from RAW came because he reportedly had some issues with Paul Heyman there, and the locker room also made fun of his beliefs.
The Phenomenal One wasn’t really happy about the release of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson either, about which he has expressed disappointment several times in the past.
Dave Meltzer mentioned in a post on the Wrestling Observer forum that Styles blamed Heyman for their release.
“Actually the reason was that he was furious that Gallows & Anderson were fired. Blamed Heyman. Classic case of JR/JJ/Laurinaitis syndrome. Vince is the one who made the decision but I suppose he felt Heyman could have fought him on it. So he wanted to go to the side where the guy in charge isn’t fighting Vince on something like that either.”
