Backstage News on WWE’s Current Opinion of AJ Styles

According to F4WOnline.com, AJ Styles was originally expected to be a mid-level wrestler when he signed with WWE. However, after the live fan reaction he got at the WWE Royal Rumble, and more so at live events, WWE now considers him one of the company’s top five regular stars.

Gabe Sapolsky Says He Feels “Vindicated” After Watching the WWE CWC

EVOLVE booker Gabe Sapolsky posted the following blog as the WWE Cruiserweight Classic gets underway:

“Today I have a feeling of vindication as WWE starts the Cruiserweight Classic. We all should feel vindicated. We all watched many of the talents in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic wrestle in front of 50 people, work hard, perfect their craft, now we are seeing them featured on WWE.com, pushed by WWE and given the largest stage in the business.

WWE is doing this without trying to change who they are, who we are, they are saying ‘go out there and do your thing. We have all been on the ride. We have seen the ups and downs. We have supported them to get there. I hope you all enjoy this moment. I want the wrestlers involved to know that everything they believed in is paying off. Thank you WWE and everyone who is behind the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. This keeps the independent undercurrent strong.”
