AJ Styles becomes #1 contender for the WWE title

AJ Styles became the new number one contender for the WWE title after he won a fatal 5-way match last night on the New Year’s Day episode of Smackdown.

Styles was joined in the match by Randy Orton, Mustafa Ali, Samoa Joe, and Rey Mysterio, with Styles pinning former WWE champion Randy Orton following a 450 springboard. AJ wrestled Bryan at the TLC pay-per-view last month but came up short after Bryan won clean with a roll-up.

Earlier in the night on Smackdown, Samoa Joe defeated Jeff Hardy for the final spot in the fatal 5-way match.
