He said, “This is how 2021 is going to start for the phenomenal AJ Styles. With a win here, a win there, and a WIN at the Royal Rumble.”

This is not where he ends. Since the time Omos has become his bodyguard, nobody has got too close to him. The giant has been protecting him and keeping him safe from any type of surprise attack. Hence, ‘The Phenomenal One’ ensured to mention him in his prediction.

“I have a seven-foot three beast named Omos that is gonna watch my back.”

In the episode of January 4th, 2021, Styles defeated Elias via pinfall. Jaxson Ryker tried to attack him, but Omos stopped it with one swift kick.

In a previous match, Omos stopped Styles from losing by picking him up and putting him back inside the ring. Apart from that, he is never seen inside or around the ring without the behemoth standing right behind him, watching over him.

It’s clear that he is watching Styles’ back sincerely.

WWE has confirmed AJ Styles as one of the Superstars who will take part in the 30-man match at Royal Rumble. The others confirmed till now are Bobby Lashley and Daniel Bryan. Whoever wins this match will earn his spot at a title match at WrestleMania 37.

If he wins at Royal Rumble, then he gets to choose an opponent from the current champions, Roman Reigns (Universal Champion) and Drew McIntyre (WWE Champion). There are higher chances of him picking McIntyre since he strongly believes he should have been the winner at WWE TLC 2020.
