Both men responded to the news, with Orton simply stating, “Rent’s due,” while Styles said:
I’ve been holding down this house way before I came to WWE. The lights may not have been as bright, the audience may not have been as big…but a ring is still a ring.
And any ring I step into belongs to me. #WrestleMania.
