WWE fans have recently put forward the idea that AJ Styles, a former WWE Champion, should have his retirement match against John Cena, Samoa Joe, and Shinsuke Nakamura.
During the May 12 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, AJ Styles achieved victory in a triple-threat match against Edge and Rey Mysterio. On that same night, Styles also secured a win over Bobby Lashley, granting him qualification for the World Heavyweight Championship match. This highly anticipated match is scheduled to occur at the Night of Champions Premium Live Event.

The WWE fans expressed immense excitement as they proposed various superstars who could potentially face The Phenomenal One in his retirement match. While a majority of fans suggested John Cena and Samoa Joe, others put forth names such as Shinsuke Nakamura, Edge, Seth Rollins, and Kenny Omega.

Imagine if they did this final programme with Edge, leading to a "loser's career is over" match at next year's Wrestlemania?
I know on "ride along" he said he wants to continue with WWE – just not in the ring. Presume that's not changed.

Styles broke character and praised Seth Rollins
WWE Superstar AJ Styles temporarily abandoned his in-character persona to shower accolades upon his on-screen adversary Seth Rollins prior to the Night of Champions Premium Live Event. During an interview with Inside the Ropes, The Phenomenal One acknowledged that while he is determined to capture the World Heavyweight Championship, he recognized the challenge of facing The Visionary, who is undeniably one of the industry’s finest wrestlers.
Styles additionally stated that Rollins has earned the right to be considered the best, emphasizing that only time will determine the victor of the World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions.
“It’s about time I’m back in the heavyweight title picture, and unfortunately, I’m up against Seth Rollins, who is probably one of the best. I said it a long time ago that he is going to be great, and nothing has changed. He’s still one of the best, no doubt about it, so we will see what happens,” AJ Styles said.
It would be captivating to witness whether The Phenomenal One can emerge victorious and capture the title or not.
