Who is AJ Styles, Early Career, and Accolades, and where he is today.
AJ Styles (Allen Neal Jones) is a professional wrestler that's wrestled all around the world. Allen Neal Jones' wrestling career started in the late 1990s, where he wrestled in Georgia as Mr. Olympia. During the next few months, he would wrestle in the Independent circuit before going to the WCW and the WWF, but, due to other plans, he declined the offer. Next, He went to Ring of Honor in 2002, where he became a main eventer very quickly.
After failing to win the ROH Title, He partnered with Amazing Red to become ROH Tag Team Champion. They reigned for months before losing the championship. He then defeated Four other wrestlers to become the first ever ROH Pure Wrestling Champion. He was at ROH for an extended period of time and wrestled for guys like Mick Foley. He quit ROH in 2006. Meanwhile, in 2002, he signed up for TNA. He defeated Jerry Lynn, Low Ki, and Psicosis in a double elimination Match to become the inaugural X Division Champion.
He won the NWA World Tag Team Championships after defeating 2 other people, so he became a double champion. He successfully defended both championships but began to bicker with Lynn during the weeks. He lost the X Division Championship, also involving Low Ki, and lost the NWA Tag Team Championships following bickering from Lynn. He did very well those next couple of years. He teamed up with Christian Cage, got the World Heavyweight Championship twice, Once in 2009 and the other in 2013, was storyline married to Karen Angle and won the X Division Championship.
When he won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in 2013, I was really happy for him. He left the company, and he traveled to Japan and Mexico to defend that championship, which was no longer valid at that point. AJ Styles returned on January 2, 2014, and told Magnus, who was the legal champion at the time, to prepare for a Title vs Title Opportunity.
The winner will be undisputed World Heavyweight Champion. AJ's contract with TNA was about to expire, so, with help from nearly every heel that Magnus can muster, He won, and remained TNA World Heavyweight Champion while AJ's contract expired. Over the next 4 months, he basically just went from Wrestling show to wrestling show, just looking for a job in the wrestling world.
He found one in Japan in NJPW, when AJ Styles Interfered in Kazuchika Okada's Match and became a member of the Bullet Club. Then, in Wrestling Dontaku 2014, AJ Styles won his first IWGP Heavyweight Championship, becoming one of only very few Americans to get that title. The Bullet Club had, at one point, held 5 major titles.
During the course of the next one and a half years, AJ Styles lost the title back to Kazuchika Okada, but had regained the gold and had lost it again. In 2016, he decided to leave NJPW with his Stablemates to head toward WWE, where you see him completely underutilized now. I felt that they should've given the WWE Championship to AJ Styles, instead of Roman Reigns, and they should have never turned AJ Styles heel in front of John Cena. In fact, they should've never put AJ Styles in a storyline with John Cena.

He's a great Athlete
Look at the way that he moves. He moves with such great ability that I don't even think it's funny. He can take bumps and can do punches like a real guy does, not like John Cena or Roman Reigns. John Cena and Roman Reigns can't take punches. They can't even do their finishing maneuvers right. John Cena's STF misses wildly by a few inches. John Cena is not an athlete at all. He's just a simple b^tch that WWE made the face of the company, and now, they're doing the same thing with Roman Reigns. Just uncharismatic work. Aj styles, though, can do summersaults and do kicks and can hit his devastating move, the Styles Clash. He does that one move, which was called the Calf Killer in TNA and NJPW, and the Calf Crusher in WWE (WWE is PG, so of course the word "killer" is banned from the WWE dictionary, and it would amaze me to see AJ Styles go like this. This move that he does, the Spiral Tap, is awesome in TNA and NJPW, but in WWE, they banned it, just like they banned the Curb Stomp, which I was not too happy about when I heard the news. Seth Rollins without his curb stomp is like AJ Styles Without his Styles Clash. It doesn't make any sense. AJ is a high flyer. I've seen his matches in TNA and part of NJPW. He's athletic enough to be called the best athlete of the year.
He's won MANY Championships and Awards with MANY Promotions.
He is a decorated champion. He;'s won numerous Awards for numerous Wrestling categories. Here are some of the few. This is from Wikipedia.

He's better than Any Wrestler that stood before him today.
It's that simple. AJ Styles is better at what he does than most people think. Most people in the WWE Bubble think that just because AJ Styles hasn't set foot in the WWE, that AJ Styles is not good. But AJ Styles is good. And I can Prove it to you. You see, whenever I watched some old AJ Styles videos of the past, I think to myself, Man, oh man, I missed out on a great athlete. Now that I think about it, he's is going to get buried by that b*tch John Cena, and John Cena is going to beat him and place him in the mid-card, where he'll be that way forever. It's not that AJ Styles hasn't been in the mid-card before, but with this case, it might be that way. AJ Styles is the best wrestler since Eddie Guerrero (according to one Bruce Blitz). He may be past his prime, but he's still capable of doing amazing maneuvers, and now that b&tch John Cena is going to bury him at Summerslam.
In Conclusion, I think that AJ Styles will far surpass anyone in the WWE, even if he faces John Cena at Summerslam and gets beat by him. For those of you that haven't watched AJ Styles in Action, Turn to the above videos in New Japan or TNA for his full potential. I think that AJ Styles needs to leave WWE Soon, because if he doesn't, then He'll be buried under the midcard status for years. While in TNA, he was highly praised and was welcome in several countries he wrestled in. IN NJPW, he was detested by the Japanese fans, but welcome by the promotion. As of August 26, he defeated John Cena CLEAN and won a number 1 contender's match to face Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Championship. THAT'S WHY HE'S LEGIT!!!
September 15 update.
As of September 15, AJ Styles is your WWE World Champion. UNFORTUNATELY, JOHN FU&#*$& CENA CAME BACK TO STEAL AJ STYLE'S SPOTLIGHT AND THEN DEAN AMBROSE CAME. So, Shane McMahon Told AJ Styles that he will defend that WWE World Championship against MOTHER*&^%$%^ B*&^% JOHN CENA AND THE WANNABE LUNATIC DEAN AMBROSE IN A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH!!!! IF DEAN AMBROSE WINS, THEN I'M JUST GOING TO BURY WWE. IF JOHN CENA WINS, I'M GOING TO DESTROY WWE WITH CURSE WORDS AND BOMB THREATS!!!!!!!!! AJ STYLES DESERVES An 8-MONTH LONG REIGN AS CHAMPION PLAYING THE LEGITIMATE HEEL THAT WILL NOT BACK DOWN FROM ANY CHALLENGE, NOT AS A CHICKEN HEEL WHO IS A COWARD AT ANYTHING HE DOES!!!!!!! I HOPE AJ STYLES GOES OVER AND DEFEATS EITHER DEAN AMBROSE OR JOHN CENA OR BOTH OF THEM!!!!!!
Update October 11, 2016
AJ STYLES WON AGAIN, albeit with a controversial fashion, again. MY MAN, AJ STYLES, deserves to win. If AJ Styles decides to go against Dolph Ziggler, then I'll be fine with that, but IF JOHN CENA MANAGES TO WIN A NUMBER 1 CONTENDER'S MATCH, THEN I'LL ROOT AJ STYLES ON, OR I'LL GO ON TWITTER AND RANT ABOUT HOW JOHN CENA IS WORTHLESS!!!!!!
My last update.
This is my last update. On the Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View, John Cena beat AJ Styles to win his 16th championship, tying Ric Flair's record in the process. Then, at Wrestlemania, he faced off against Shane McMahon in what was called a 4.25-star match. Then, Aj Styles turned face when he apologized to Shane. Now, he's featured on Smackdown.
