It’s been two weeks since Kazarian won the X-Division Battle Royal to earn the 10 spot in the TNA Top 10 Ranking system, and The Nature Boy may have found himself a new protegé.
Obviously this does not sit well with the Phenomenal One, AJ Styles. And why should it? The man was on top of the mountain as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, and in comes Ric Flair to poison his mind. AJ went from the top babyface to a despicable heel.
However, not-for-nothing, Ric Flair, despite the cheapy ring robe, transformed AJ Styles to a more charismatic wrestler. Before, AJ couldn’t talk his way out of a paper bag, and he was contemplating quitting TNA because he wasn’t getting what he wanted – a World Championship shot.
AJ was the shy little boy from Georgia, and now he’s a cut-throat guy who will lay out on the table what he wants and lets people know that they have two options, “Deal with it, and like it.”
Basically, it’s AJ’s way or… AJ’s way. But Ric Flair fleeting Styles’ side to the corner of Kazarian is not exactly AJ’s way.
There seemed to be no problems before when Ric Flair recruited Desmond Wolfe and Beer Money Inc, to join their clube of Stylin’ and Proflin’ crew, but there is something about Kaz that does not sit well with AJ Styles.
The K-A-Z is a prominent young athlete who has had much success in TNA with a World Tag Team Title, and 3 X-Division Champion title reigns. Kaz is frustrated because he feels that he deserves to reach that next level. And if a guy like AJ Styles could be made into a bigger star with the services of Ric Flair, then sign him up.
Is the rift between AJ Styles and Ric Flair a good thing?
Ric Flair has done basically all he can for Styles. Other than recapturing the World title, which will not happen anytime soon with Rob Van Dam as the new face of the company, it’s time that Flair and Styles head their separate ways.
Ric Flair with TNA Gold?
Ric Flair once upon a time was a stand up guy and a true champion. But now he’s a vulture and needs to be around gold. And with Desmond Wolfe and Beer Money on his team, he can attempt to collect all the championships in TNA.
Imagine that, Ric Flair in possession of ALL the TNA gold.
TNA World Champion: AJ Styles
TNA X-Division Champion: Kazarian
TNA Global Champion: Desmond Wolfe
TNA World Tag Team Champions: Beer Money Inc.
Orlando, Florida may very well become the new Flair Country if he plays his cards right.
