Their ways have not by any stretch of the imagination crossed beside the semi-finals of NXT ladies’ title competition in May 2014, which saw Charlotte improvement to Alexa’s detriment.

The next night on SmackDown, Styles and Bryan ridiculed the couple, with Bryan going about as Styles’ promoter. Bryan said that Lesnar dependably rationally stops when he gets into profound waters and Styles would “suffocate” Lesnar at Survivor Series.
He even ventured to say Lesnar tapping out to UFC awesome Frank Mir’s “good for nothing kneebar”! By one means or another it’s difficult to see Styles compelling the Beast Incarnate to submit to a Calf Killer, or having the capacity to hit him with a Styles Clash.
