A few days ago WWE made a huge announcement when it was revealed that Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt had been pulled from the TLC pay-per-view. Kurt Angle stepped up to replace Roman Reigns in the main event, and AJ Styles replaced Bray Wyatt when he faced off against Finn Balor.

Finn Balor vs. AJ Styles is a match that fans have been waiting to see for years, and most would agree that it delivered. Even though Balor and Styles have an interesting history with The Bullet Club, there wasn’t really any buildup for the match in terms of a storyline, but people were still emotionally invested.

After the match William Regal took to Twitter to say that the match was a perfect example of two competitors trying to win, and he noted that it served as a reminder that wrestlers always have a story to tell if they can just convince the fans that they need to beat their opponent.
