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.

When Dwayne Johnson made his cameo appearance on Monday Night Raw, he entertained the audience by going off script and endorsing a couple of fans that were dressed like WWE legends.
