A report is made to be damaged. Last November, AJ Styles gained the WWE Championship from Jinder Mahal on an episode of SmackDown Live from England. Not simplest used to be this the primary time the name had modified fingers in England and the primary time in over fourteen years that the name had modified fingers on SmackDown, however it’s a reign this is nonetheless going to nowadays. That’s a report in its personal proper.
As of Wednesday, Styles is now the longest reigning champion in SmackDown Live historical past, with a name reign lasting 281 days. This breaks John Bradshaw Layfield’s report, which he set all through his 2004-2005 reign and held it ever since. Styles’ reign is now the 13th longest in WWE Championship historical past. Should he make it thru Summerslam, he would most likely transfer as much as 11th all time, which he would succeed in on September 3.

Opinion: I really like stats like those and it’s probably the most extra fascinating ones as Styles may stay going even upper up at the checklist. There’s an opportunity he survives Summerslam as champion and that might put him into some very uncommon air. I doubt he’s going to get to CM Punk’s reign, however it’s no longer utterly out of the query both. No topic what he does, it’s rather the accomplishment and one thing that isn’t more likely to be damaged for a very long time.
