Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles for WrestleMania 35 was made official today via Twitter.
The company made the announcement on their official Twitter page for WrestleMania, which you can check out below.
Below is an excerpt from WWE.com regarding the match.
After weeks of subtle jabs between Orton and Styles culminated in a surprise Phenomenal Forearm on The Viper at WWE Fastlane, the two Superstars collided in a harsh war-of-words on the blue brand.
Orton claimed that it was absolutely ludicrous that SmackDown LIVE is referred to as The House that Styles Built when Orton has been holding it down and making history on the blue brand since 2002. Orton declared that this wasn’t Styles’ house, but his, and The Phenomenal One would soon just be another “indy darling” who couldn’t hack it against him.
Styles interrupted WWE’s Apex Predator and accused him of never accomplishing one thing in WWE that he could call his own since his father and grandfather opened the door for him and his association in several factions along the way protected him from failure.
Orton took great exception to that claim and promised Styles that this was his house, rent was due and that he should make the check out to the three most destructive letters in sports-entertainment: R-K-O. Styles didn’t blink, instead retorting by challenging his adversary to a showdown at WrestleMania.
