AJ Styles wants to face Randy Orton.

AJ Styles wants to face Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura in the WWE

Published 1 Comments

When AJ Styles finally made his highly-anticipated debut at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view this year, fans knew they were in for an incredible ride with The Phenomenal One.

He’s done a fantastic job over the years in remaining perhaps the most relevant wrestler on the planet, despite not being in the company where he now holds the world championship.


It’s difficult to think of many wrestlers as good as Styles right now, and he’s proven it over the years. We’ve finally witnessed the dream match between Styles and Cena take place, and obviously, there are plenty more out there that should, or could still happen.

Speaking to Kevin Schaller of Game Revolution, Styles explained who he still wants to battle in the WWE, and talked about THAT rematch the world still wants to see.

When asked who he still wants to face off against, the WWE Champion said: “I honestly believe I’ve wrestled…y’know, there are still some guys in the WWE that I haven’t had the opportunity to get in the ring with.

“That’s gonna come, I’m sure of it. I haven’t been in the ring with Randy Orton.

“We’re both on SmackDown Live, so eventually that’s gonna happen. I think that’s gonna be huge, that’s gonna be fun. So there’s definitely guys on the SmackDown roster that I haven’t had the opportunity to wrestle, and the Raw roster, and the NXT roster.

“I think there’s all these matches that people are going to want to see, it’s gonna happen eventually, and I’m one of them. I want these matches to happen as well.”


The WWE are in a unique position now, and the fans are eager for one particular star to move up to the main roster as soon as possible.

One of the best matches to take place this year – some might find it as one of the best in recent times – took place at Wrestle Kingdom X, when current NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Styles for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.

When asked if there could be a rematch of their masterclass on the horizon, maybe even for a title, Styles wasn’t ruling anything out.

He continued: “I don’t know when, or where, but it will happen eventually.

“The WWE, they’re smart, they know what they’re doing. And when that time comes, everybody will be aware of it, and they won’t wanna miss it.”

With plenty of huge matches still available in the company, fans will be eager to see whether Nakamura does eventually end up on the blue brand.
