Seth Rollins vs AJ Styles has potential to be a match of the year candidate


Seth Rollins and AJ Styles are two of the best performers in the world and have the opportunity to put on a match the fans will remember all year at Night of Champions. 

There is a lot of excellent professional wrestling coming in the last week of May. WWE is putting on Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia, while AEW hosts Double or Nothing in Las Vegas the next time. There are several matches to look forward to, but WWE fans should have their eye on the match between Seth Rollins and AJ Styles. These two men are battling for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and looking at the track records of both, this has the potential to be one of the best matches of 2023.

Styles and Rollins are recognized as two of the best performers in the industry today. In Rollins, WWE has an individual that could be considered the “Ace” of the promotion. He’s a guy they can count on to deliver a fantastic match and wrap fans into caring about everything he does. He checks all the boxes as someone who could be a mainstream star, excelling in the ring and crossing over to avenues beyond it.

Styles could be considered a Cal Ripken-like figure on the WWE roster. He continues to deliver, even at 45 years of age. He doesn’t look to be slowing down and fans still push to see him elevated as a top champion for a long-term run. While that opportunity may have passed, Styles continues to excel when these moments are put in front of him.

The title match at Night of Champions has all the makings of a match-of-the-year candidate. Expect these two men to pull out all the stops and sequences that aren’t often seen on WWE television. They tend to perform with a chip on their shoulder mentality, and that brings out the best of themselves and their opponents each match. Pitting them against each other stands to further highlight their abilities, which is what happens in professional wrestling when the best dance partners get the chance to show off.

According to Cagematch, Rollins has a 6-1-win record against Styles in singles matches. The most recent of which happened in 2022, when Rollins defeated Styles in a Money in the Bank qualifying match. If rankings are more your thing, Styles versus Rollins tends to get a high 7 to 8 score of at least 4 stars from the voices that carry the clout in professional wrestling media. Today’s WWE is different than previous years when it comes to in-ring, which makes this match on May 27 more intriguing. If current trends and the build to the match hold true, this has the potential to be an even better showing from these two men than fans have seen in the past.

AJ Styles versus Seth Rollins has the talent to do nearly anything in professional wrestling. Slotting these two against each other in a championship match has all the makings to be one of the best matches throughout professional wrestling when 2023 is done.
