We knew this was coming, considering they set it up on SmackDown Live this week, but WWE has made it official: AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton at WrestleMania 35 on Sun., April 7, 2019, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Here’s how WWE is selling it:
At WrestleMania, AJ Styles will take on Randy Orton in a battle to see who has the right to call SmackDown LIVE their house.
As for Styles:
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 https://t.co/XHTEr4RQt1
