Shane McMahon vs. AJ Styles

AJ Styles got what he wanted — a big-time match at The Ultimate Thrill Ride, WrestleMania 33. But after resorting to extreme tactics, he may be in for a fight he’s not expecting.

Over the course of a wild week, The Phenomenal One went from having no WrestleMania match, to having no job, to having a WrestleMania match against the man in charge of SmackDown LIVE, Shane McMahon.

Things turn volatile between Shane-O-Mac and "The Face That Runs the Place" en route to their clash at The Ultimate Thrill Ride.

Fueled by his belief that management was working against him, Styles ambushed the Commissioner of Team Blue in a parking garage on the March 14 edition of SmackDown LIVE, viciously slamming his head through a car window. SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan fired Styles, but that didn’t deter McMahon from limping his way into the arena to demand a showdown with his assailant.

Whether Styles’ claims of upper management not supporting him are true (for the record, Bryan says McMahon was a consistent advocate of Styles as The Road to WrestleMania was being paved), The Phenomenal One is intent on taking out his anger. To hear the newly reinstated Styles explain it, unleashing a WrestleMania beatdown on the Commissioner is something he is very much looking forward to.

McMahon, however, is not one to be underestimated. Though not an in-ring competitor by trade, Shane-O-Mac is notoriously courageous any time he steps through the ropes. Factor in his now-undisguised contempt for Styles, and The Prodigal Son is ready to go all out at WrestleMania. That was obvious on the March 21 edition of SmackDown Live when McMahon flew through the air and elbow dropped Styles through the announce desk.

Will AJ Styles dish out pain against the Commissioner at WrestleMania? Or can Shane McMahon make the elite Superstar pay for crossing the line? Don’t miss this crucial match when The Ultimate Thrill Ride, WrestleMania, streams live tonight at 7 ET/4 PT, on the award-winning WWE Network.
