Before his surprise debut at Royal Rumble, not many people expected AJ Styles to actually carve out an impressive run in the WWE. Even if he managed to do well, fans never imagined they’d see Mr. TNA holding the WWE Championship.
Cut to three years later, and the Phenomenal One has surprised all of the fans who thought he’d be mishandled. Today, Styles reached another impressive milestone, as he’s officially held the company’s top prize for a full year. To date, his combined reigns add up to 505 days.
Styles is only fifteen days away from passing Macho Man Randy Savage in combined days. Ten more days after that and he’ll break into the top 10 all-time longest reigning champions, surpassing Stone Cold Steve Austin.
