Vince McMahon is growing even fonder of WWE World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, so much so that he wants to move him from Smackdown to Raw.

According to those close to McMahon, he wants to switch Styles to Raw some time next year after Wrestlemania 33.

While it’s unknown how this will happen, there has been talk about doing the 2017 WWE Draft earlier in the year. This year’s draft was in July. One proposed idea had it happening in May 2017 and while there hasn’t been too much thought given to it, Vince is said to want to switch Styles to the bigger brand.

The story of AJ Styles is quite interesting as he was signed after WWE was intent on going after top talent working for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Vince took to AJ Styles from the beginning and really impressed him in his programs with John Cena. From that point on he's been one of Vince's favorite Superstars.
