Reported Wrestlemania opponent for AJ Styles revealed

Wrestlemania is only a few months away and WWE is trying to make it as memorable an event as possible by making a card that is sure to excite fans.

AJ Styles losing his WWE Championship to Daniel Bryan on Smackdown was definitely unexpected and surprised many. However, it might have something to do with WWE’s plans for him at Wrestlemania.

On Barnburner‘s No Holds Barred podcast, Joe Peisich noted that AJ Styles opponent for Wrestlemania might be none other than Randy Orton. This could turn out to be a very interesting match, as we never saw the two compete on a grand stage like Wrestlemania.

It is to be noted that AJ Styles’ contract will expire shortly after Wrestlemania. So it is definitely an interesting time.

It is still uncertain whether Randy will end up being AJ’s opponent. Perhaps plans might change, as they usually do in WWE. We will know for sure in good time.

    It’s not going to be the main event when there are options like Rousey vs Lynch, Bryan vs Miz and Brock vs Rock on the table.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    First off let’s get 1 thing straight AJ Styles will not be leaving WWE. Oh the dirt sheet will be doing this story over and over again for the next few months. But he will get a new deal probably long before WM 35.

    Second there is only two options for AJ Styles either he will face Brock Lesnar for the Universal title or face HBK. Yes HBK said he had his last match. But if they have a chance to due a dream match with AJ Styles vs HBK this might be the Wrestlemania to do it.

    Orton vs Kane actually had a good street fight maybe five years ago that was surprisingly entertaining, Besides, AJ will probably win and beating Orton is a big win for AJ.

  • Rinn13

    Yeah, that sure sounds great. Instead of, say, Styles being in the main event of the show, he’ll get to wrestle a throw away match with Orton instead.

  • Grant Thomson

    Orton vs anybody is boring. This is a waste of AJ’s marquee value

  • Soulshroude

    Styles vs Orton…welcome to the big leagues, Styles.

  • Dirt McGirt

    This could be interesting and a logical opponent for Orton in his destroy things the fans love gimmick.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Well think about it, if WWE are serious about this they’ll promote this like it’s some kind of big deal. It’s not the first time the WWE have demoted the WWE title in favour of some “meh” feud

  • David Klein

    who said it would main event???

  • CC

    It could turn out to be in an interesting match … not even remotely.
    Who wants to see this? Not many people I am sure.
    Orton could actually be used to help get someone over, and so could AJ.
    It would be more interesting to see Orton go up against (and lose) to someone like Rusev. I would say Nakamura or Samoa Joe, but heel vs heel never gets that much of a reaction.

    AJ in reality should be in the main event against Bryan, but if they do not want him in the title picture still, even someone like Almas could do with the rub.
    Hey, if worst comes to worst how about reuniting with the Good Brothers and taking on Sanity.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Dear god no! Aj being in the main event is great don’t get me wrong, but no way in hell do I want to see another one of triple Hs buddies main eventing. Especially if the rumours are to be true about Triple H vs Batista being a possible match (before Hunter tore his pec obviously) . It should be somebody like Bryan, Nakamura, Balor, Joe, Owens guys like that who will excite the crowd… not put them to sleep
