Fans had feared the 43-year-old would never make his way to WWE following a standout career on the independent scene.

Styles was hailed for one of the most impressive debuts in the history of the company as he debuted at the 2016 Rumble.

Yet the Intercontinental Champion admitted WWE CEO McMahon didn’t share the same reactions as fans at first.

Speaking on his weekly Twitch stream Styles revealed that the billionaire thought that the standing ovation he received at the Rumble was a fluke.

The reaction that I got at the Royal Rumble 2016 was awesome, it was amazing, but Vince didn’t really believe that – [he thought] that it was a fluke, basically

He said: “The reaction that I got at the Royal Rumble 2016 was awesome, it was amazing, but Vince didn’t really believe that – [he thought] that it was a fluke, basically.”

“That’s what he thought it was. I wasn’t even going to be on RAW the next day, but they convinced him otherwise.”

Styles later opened up on the moment McMahon’s opinion of him changed that allowed him to forge a path towards being WWE Champion.

He told Dirtfork: “I don’t even think I was supposed to be on Raw that next Monday.

“But the turning point where Vince really saw something in me was when I had a regular match, a babyface match, went out and did my thing.

“I came back to gorilla and Vince says, ‘Come here for a second. I’ve got other guys who can do exactly what you just did out there. You didn’t do anything special. I need a pit bull. I need a guy who just attacks. I need a guy who gets after it.’”

“I said, ‘Well, I know that guy. I know exactly who that guy is’ and there was the opportunity to be on Miz TV and I handled it just like I was ready to eat this guy’s lunch and basically, I think the way that turned out was the turning point for Vince.

“That was the turning point. That’s when things changed and that’s how I became the A.J. Styles that you know now.”

fans love tanguy ndombeles moment of magic in build up to heung min sons opener

Fans have been singing the praises of Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele after his involvement in their equaliser against Southampton.

The French midfielder picked up the ball in the middle of the pitch after showing his strength against Saints hard man Oriel Romeu. 

He then creates space for himself with a perfect piece of skill to get past James Ward-Prowse and get Spurs on the attack.

Ndombele then put the ball through to Harry Kane who set up Son Hueng-min in a fast, flowing move all begun by the Frenchman.

One fan tweeted: ‘That was a world class piece of skill from Ndombele. World class’

Another fan said that the Tottenham midfielder is about to surpass Manchester United’s Paul Pogba in the French set-up following his first half display. 

They tweeted: ‘Ndombele really about to end pogbas international career.’

Despite impressing in the first half of Tottenham’s match against Southampton in the Premier League, Ndombele was dragged off at half-time, minutes after his moment of magic.

He was replaced by Giovani Lo Celso, who has shared the same injury woes as his counterpart in recent months.

There have been question marks over Jose Mourinho’s faith in Ndombele after he made it quite clear last season that he was not in his favoured starting side.

AWESOME AUBA HERE

Martin Keown reckons Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can become an Arsenal legend after the striker finally signed a new contract this week.

And the club’s former centre-back shared his thoughts on what more the Emirates frontman can do to become a Gunners icon.

Keown told talkSPORT: “Aubameyang loves playing there [Arsenal] and he wants to be a legend in the future, so why not?

“He’s 31 years of age and he’s turned down Barcelona by the way to stay there. I think that tells you how much he loves the football club and what he’s looking to achieve.

“If they win the Premier League in the next three years then he certainly will become a legend if he plays a major part in that.”
