WWE has announced that next week on WWE SmackDown Live, A.J. Styles will face off against Randy Orton in Singles Action to determine who will be face Bray Wyatt for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, FL.
This match is very exciting for two important reasons:-
– We’ll finally find out who will be facing Bray Wyatt at ”The Showcase of the Immortals” WrestleMania
– A.J. Styles and Randy Orton have never faced each other before.
And, Styles has said many times in the past media interviews that Randy Orton is someone who he would like to work with and next week it’s going down on WWE SmackDown Live.

Randy Orton won the 2017 Traditional 30-Man Royal Rumble Match and he later declared that he would not face ”his master” Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33 so long he is ”his servant”. Well, that all changed last week when Orton took a trip to The Wyatt Family compound as ”he got the keys to the kingdom” and burned the whole ”kingdom” to the ground.
The situation with Randy Orton has created a lot of confusion, because ”The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles defeated ”The Bearded Brawler from the Backwoods” Luke Harper earlier in the night last week on SmackDown Live to earn the right to challenge Bray at WrestleMania.
Now it looks like SmackDown’s authority figures have come up with a way to solve this dilemma.
