• Major Spoiler For Next Week’s RAW
After the humiliating loss to The Undertaker in the main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania 36, AJ Styles hasn’t been seen on WWE programming. He’s currently selling the after effects of the match.
According to Post Wrestling, The Phenomenal One will be returning to RAW this Monday. His next move is unknown, but the timing for his return is quite interesting.
He could be a part of the Last Chance Gauntlet match to qualify for the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder match (as word going on is that he is scheduled to be a part of the Money In The Bank 2020 PPV).
Another reason behind Styles’ return is the fact that RAW has been struggling with ratings as of late, because RAW has been using a lot of new wrestlers in the post-WrestleMania 36 season.
It’ll be interesting to see how WWE books Styles’ return, after he was buried alive.
