Abyss vs. AJ Styles
April 24, 2005

Here is a list of things AJ Styles did in this match.
- A somersault flip dive over the top rope through the door of the cage
- A seamless slide under the guardrail into a springboard rana off the rail
- A springboard off a guardrail onto a table in the third row of the fans, all to set up a diving forearm onto Abyss outside the cage, while Abyss shoves a fan out of the way to make sure no one dies
- A crossbody over the guardrail to the ground
- Jumped over Abyss so he could take a turnbuckle bump
- Did a DDT out of being pressed over Abyss’ head
- A springboard moonsault onto Abyss, which Abyss no sold via AJ crumpling to the ground
- A German suplex on Abyss, who Mike Tenay claimed was 6’8” and 350 pounds, and I believe Mike Tenay is lying to me right now
- Reversed a chokeslam into a Victory roll
- A Styles Clash into a mound of thumbtacks
- A sunset flip powerbomb off the top of the cage to Abyss, into the tacks.
AJ Styles is not a human being, he is approximately 15 cats in a human skin suit.
This was a crazed performance by a single person. Abyss is a capable worker in 2005. AJ Styles didn’t even need him to be that in this match. ****¼
