The WWE world heavyweight championship scenario is very well built with a strong storyline, as of now. The anticipation and the stakes are even higher since the former Bullet Club members Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson has got into the mix to make the storyline more intriguing.
This past week on WWE Raw after Roman Reigns had a match with Alberto Del Rio, the former buddies of AJ Styles delivered another pure assault on Reigns. Styles came to the ring to stop his former brethren but got Superman punch to the face. It looked that Reigns will stand tall to close the show but Styles fought back with his pendant Phenomenal forearm to knock his opponent at Payback down.
The interesting part was that both Gallows and Anderson was laughing while two of them were recovering inside the ring. The rumors were all over that Styles may have a connection with his former buddies. Reigns said in previous weeks that he does not trust Styles at all. The WWE champion later took his twitter handle to warn AJ Styles.

Styles too tweeted the following which was published in a Japanese newspaper which showed Gallows and Anderson attacking Reigns on raw. The picture raised the question, is Styles supporting his brother’s actions?

Though, the reports from sources say that there’s no way Styles is getting into the heel mode and forming a stable with his former brethren which means Roman Reigns will continue with his “the Guy” gimmick post-Payback scenario, retaining his title, which is a terrible thing for the fans.
The reason behind Styles not getting heel is he is one of the biggest faces in the company right now and there’s no way the company will like to ruin it. Though, it wipes out the potential of Reigns’ much-anticipated heel turn. The company is also running in profit due to huge merchandise sale of Styles since his arrival at the start of this year. Since then he stole the spotlight and became number one contender for the WWE world heavyweight championship, the night after Wrestlemania 32.
