Even though he has only been with WWE for less than a month, AJ Styles has already picked up some backstage heat. Even worse, the heat is with Vince McMahon himself.

In a sign that he might not yet be ready to leave the country, AJ Styles was rewarded with another IWGP Heavyweight Championship reign by New Japan. At a recent event, he defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to recapture the belt. Tanahashi had defeated Styles last year to win the title. Styles and the Bullet Club are in line for a major push this year, as the promotion handed five championships to the heel stable in the very same night.
