AJ Styles returned on Raw tonight and qualified for the Money in the Bank match at WWE Headquarters … then threatened to throw someone off the roof this weekend.
Styles was the final competitor in the Last Chance gauntlet match on Raw and defeated Humberto Carrillo with the Calf Crusher to earn the final spot in the ladder match on Sunday.
As you’ll recall … AJ was “buried alive” by The Undertaker at WrestleMania in the cinematic Boneyard match. During his absence from TV, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows were released from their contracts amidst cost-cutting measures. Despite this, AJ still wore The OC gear upon his return.
“Yeah, I got buried,” Styles said in a post-match promo. “So what. I admit it. I understand it. But that doesn’t mean I lost. It doesn’t mean I lost anything. There’s no rules in a boneyard match. No rules at all. But that was then, and this is now. And I have seized an opportunity. You see, I am now in the most unique Money in the Bank ladder match. And it’s worth it, it was worth it. In fact, I’m gonna do anything, and I mean anything, to get that Money in the Bank contract. And if that means throwing a Rey Mysterio or Aleister Black off the top of WWE headquarters, then so be it.”
