We’re getting dangerously close to WrestleMania 33 as the pay-per-view is less than a month away. Bray Wyatt is the man who happens to be holding the WWE Championship at the moment, but his WrestleMania opponent is not set in stone.
Randy Orton won the 2017 Royal Rumble match and he lated declared that he would not face Bray Wyatt at the show of shows because he considered Bray to be his master. Well, that all changed last week when Orton took a trip to The Wyatt Family compound and burned the whole thing to the ground.
The situation with Randy Orton has created a lot of confusion, because AJ Styles defeated Luke Harper last week on SmackDown 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.
WWE has announced that next week on SmackDown Live, AJ Styles will face off against Randy Orton in a one on one match to determine who will be facing Bray for the title at WrestleMania 33.

This match is very exciting for two important reasons. The first reason being that we’ll finally find out who will be facing Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania and the second reason being that AJ Styles and Randy Orton have never faced each other before.
Styles has said many times that Randy Orton is someone who he would like to work with and next week it’s going down on SmackDown Live.
It should be Orton because he won the Rumble, but way to keep things interesting aka filing up the waiting gap to WM.
