Over the weekend, WWE did a live event in Syracuse, New York. AJ Styles was one of the participants of the show. He worked a match against Tyler Breeze. It was said that Styles dominated the match on offense. The most interesting thing to come out of the show is the fact that AJ used the slingshot flying forearm as his finisher instead of the Styles Clash. Reports had surfaced that management was against him using his finisher.

When Tyler Breeze was first promoted from the NXT roster, it appeared that he was sitting pretty as WWE immediately pushed him on the main roster against Dolph Ziggler.

That was why Summer Rae was taken away from Tyler.

Since Tyler Breeze was left down in NXT for so long, many were under the assumption that management would not be giving him a real chance once he got to the main roster in WWE. However, it now appears that Dolph Ziggler will be putting over Breeze, which would catapult him into the mid card scene instead of being stuck in the lower card scene. A lot depends on how well Breeze does in this first feud.
