Last night on Smackdown Live we learned of 1 official new match for WrestleMania and two matches that unless something changes will be taking place.
Shane McMahon vs The Miz
Back at WWE Fastlane and not being able to capture the Smackdown Live Tag Team Championships Shane McMahon went crazy and attacked The Miz. On Smackdown Shane McMahon opened the show saying how good it felt to kick Miz’s ass at Fastlane. He said he will continue to kick The Miz’s ass when the two face off at WrestleMania.
Randy Orton vs AJ Styles
Over the last few weeks WWE teased something was going to happen with Randy Orton and AJ Styles. At Fastlane Orton appeared and his Elias with an RKO and then Orton was hit with a Phenomenal Forearm from Styles. Last night on Smackdown Randy Orton came out and talked about his career in comparison the Styles career. He went on to say since 2005 he has been a world champion in WWE while AJ Styles was on the indie scene.
Styles then came out and talked about hos a lot of the guys in the back came from where he came from and that Orton would not have been able to hang on the outside. Orton then told AJ that he is really the one that built Smackdown and Orton is just renting a room here and rent is due. Styles then told Randy if he wants his rent then he can come and take it. He then told Orton they can do it at WrestleMania as Orton walked off.
