AJ Styles Arrives at Raw – Youtube
Here goes WWE “burying” AJ Styles again. /sarcasm

Welcome to February! WWE is on the fast lane to Fast Lane and with less than three weeks until the next live special, business is picking up in a big way. As Birmingham, Alabama prepares itself for tonight’s carnage, check out the pre-show notes:
- The Beast of Marketing: Brock Lesnar will be in the arena tonight, presumably to have Paul E. Dangerously talk a little trash to his Fast Lane opponents. With the wrestling world still buzzing from Dean Ambrose’s interview with Michael Cole on WWE.com last week, expect the tension between Lesnar and Ambrose to boil over, with the Wyatt Family running interference.
- Era of Kalisto: With Alberto del Rio possibly on the shelf for a time, it looks like Kalisto will get to hang onto his U.S. title a bit longer than his previous run as champion. Already granting Neville a title shot last week on SmackDown, Kalisto is picking up right where John Cena left off, as a fighting champion.
- Styles Clash: With Dam Ambrose currently involved in the main event picture, it looks like AJ Styles will have to deal with Kevin Owens in his first full program in WWE. Pants. Off.
Enjoy the show, marks! Be sure to come back for the Day After report!
