AJ Styles Wins IWGP World Title

aj styles​According to Puroresu Spirit, former TNA star and current ROH star AJ Styles won the IWGP Heavyweight Title at today's 5/3 New Japan Wrestling Dontaku iPPV in Fokoka, Japan, defeating Kazuchika Okada to win the title.

Styles won after interference from his group, the Bullet Club and Yujiro Takahashi, who turned on fellow CHAOS stablemate, Okada, revealing himself as the newest member of the Bullet Club.

Styles is the first American wrestler to win the IWGP Heavyweight Title since Brock Lesnar won it in 2005.

More on Shaul Guerrero's NXT Release

We reported a couple weeks ago that Shaul Guerrero, known in NXT as Raquel Diaz, was being repackaged as Baron Corbin's valet, so it appears as if the decision to release her came at some point this past week, and was not something WWE has been planning for awhile, reports F4WOnline.com.

No word at this point as to whether or not Corbin will continue working the new biker gimmick.
