Prior to his WWE Title No. 1 Contender’s Match against Randy Orton, AJ Styles was once again unable to contain his displeasure for Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan, still firmly believing that he was being robbed out of the WrestleMania title opportunity that he had earned by defeating Luke Harper last week.

With his ticket to WrestleMania officially punched, the question quickly became … what would happen next between he and his former leader, Bray Wyatt?
