Bryan Alvarez is reporting that WWE is planning for Styles to debut next Monday night on RAW from Miami, FL.
WWE is working on a vignette that will air on RAW next week in an
effort to introduce Styles to the audience. Apparently management feels that most WWE fans will not know who AJ Styles is, as crazy as
WWE is said to have made a blow- away offer to sign him, so the idea of the company offering such big money to an ‘unknown’ talent doesn’t make a lot of sense, but that’s the latest.
Additionally, AJ Styles will be the only newly acquired talent from NJPW that will not start out in NXT. Shinsuke Nakamura, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson will all beheading to NXT for at least a few months when they sign with WWE.
