AJ Styles has delivered a message to his upcoming opponent, indicating their absence from the next three weeks of SmackDown but proposing a showdown at WrestleMania 40! AJ Styles took to Twitter to address his WrestleMania 40 adversary, LA Knight.

In the video, Styles asserts that Knight can search for him all he wants, but he won’t be appearing on SmackDown for the upcoming three weeks. However, Styles promises to rendezvous with LA Knight next in Philadelphia at WrestleMania 40.

While it’s doubtful that Styles will truly be absent from WWE television until WrestleMania 40, these remarks might hint at an encounter between the two elsewhere.

It’s improbable that LA Knight would simply accept being denied the opportunity to confront Styles for the next three weeks. We’ll need to stay tuned to see if this clip lays the groundwork for an interaction between LA Knight and AJ Styles in another setting!


On the latest WWE SmackDown episode, LA Knight publicly called out AJ Styles and issued a challenge for a match at the ‘grandest stage of them all’, receiving an immediate response.

Styles ambushed LA Knight from behind, concluding the segment by acknowledging the challenge and pinning Knight beneath a steel chair.
