Randy Orton v AJ Styles set to be confirmed for WrestleMania after SmackDown face-to-face

Randy Orton and AJ Styles went face-to-face on SmackDown last night

WrestleMania 35 is now less than four weeks away and the match card is starting to fill up as we get closer to April 7.

Already planned for a while have been the Universal Championship encounter between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins, and the Raw Women's title Triple Threat involving Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch - they will seemingly serve as co-main events.

Triple H and Batista will wage war with each other in a rematch of their WrestleMania 21 match, this time under the No Holds Barred stipulation, and other confirmed matches this week include Shane McMahon against The Miz and Kurt Angle's retirement bout against a currently unnamed opponent.

If every main roster title is going to be defended at the Metlife Stadium, in addition to already confirmed non-title matches and ones that are supposedly in the works, we could have a grand total of 17 matches spanning the Kick Off Show and the main card.

And this weeks episode of SmackDown seemingly set up another singles match for the Show Of Shows.

For weeks now in backstage segments, Randy Orton has been seemingly teasing AJ Styles over his career and the fact he claims to have built the SmackDown Live brand up by himself.

AJ Styles challenges Randy Orton to a match at WrestleMania

Styles picked an opportune moment to strike the first blow at Fastlane, following Orton out to the ring after he RKO'd Elias and dropped The Viper with the Phenomenal Forearm.

Last night the two came face-to-face inside the ring as Orton ran down his history in the WWE, whilst denouncing Styles' for his time on the independent scene and in TNA Wrestling.

Styles fought back and said Randy only became successful as a WWE superstar because of his family ties to the business, which seemingly set Orton off and declared SmackDown Live 'his house' and that 'rent was due'.

That was the moment where a WrestleMania challenge was laid down by the Phenomenal One, but it was neither accepted or declined by The Apex Predator, but all roads seemingly lead to New Jersey for this prospective battle.

Orton divides opinion nowadays with his in-ring style but there's no denying that he makes a fantastic heel, and a one-on-one match on the biggest stage between the two should be a really interesting encounter.
