AJ Styles Murked Adam Cole Last Night

The first night of War of the Worlds was a rousing success judging from the various tweets and comments from folks who went last night. The crowd really took to the New Japan Pro Wrestling stars, and the action was hard-hitting, extremely hard-hitting in the case of AJ Styles taking on a returning Adam Cole. Specifically, one spot in the match was enough to make the hairs stand up on folks' neck, whether seeing it live or in .gif/Instagram video form. It's after the jump, courtesy of New Legacy Inc.

For those who don't know, that move is called Bloody Sunday. It was absorbed from Prince Devitt (now known as Finn Bálor) by Styles when he took over leadership of the Bullet Club (Hail Hydra) upon the former's signing with WWE. It was a visually brutal and stunning spot for sure, but if I were Cole, I may not have agreed to take that move on the apron in my first match back. Then again, I'm a noted coward who has never taken a bump in his life, so who asked me anyway? Either way, if this is a preview of things to come tonight, then aww yeah, night two is gonna be as hype as last night's first show. Cole and Styles will be across the ring from each other again, the former flanked by his Kingdom stablemates Matt Taven and Mike Bennett, while the latter will be joined by his Bullet Club bros the Young Bucks in six man action. I can't wait.
