WWE Smackdown: Shane McMahon calls out AJ Styles for WrestleMania

There is no arguing that the women's division has been one of the more exciting aspects of WWE television over the last while and it is a true credit to the performers that they have. As made clear by SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan, John Cena and Nikki Bella are officially put into a WrestleMania match against The Miz and Maryse.

The standout moment of the night, of course, was an infuriated AJ Styles delivering a brutal beating to SmackDown commissioner Shane McMahon in the garage portion of the backstage area.

The match is obviously going ahead, so Styles is clearly part of the blue brand, until WrestleMania at least. The bar was then set that much higher during the Attitude Era when The Hardy Boyz, Edge & Christian, and The Dudley Boyz battled it out in the classic Wrestlemania 2000 TLC match.

Still enraged over what he perceived as poor treatment from Shane-O-Mac and general manager Daniel Bryan over the past few months, Styles turned words into action with a brutal sneak attack which culminated with him smashing his boss through a auto window.

At 39 years old, Styles began wrestling just before Cena did, working all around the world for a decade-and-a-half before coming to WWE. I am a fan of what Shane McMahon brings as a character to the show.

The Miz & Maryse complain that they have to face John Cena & Nikki Bella, but they will triumph at WrestleMania?

As expected, the payoff was the official announcement that the four will duke it out in a mixed-gender tag-team bout at WrestleMania. Wyatt responded via satellite saying Sister Abagail lives through him now as he rubbed her damp ashes and those of the burned-down house to baptize himself and become born again.

And, The Usos and American Alpha finally clashed after weeks of mind games. Similarly, he could fight The Undertaker, a match many thought would happen at WrestleMania this year.

On stage - Shane McMahon: McMahon was short, simple and to the point: "AJ Styles says he doesn't have an opponent at WrestleMania? And the fact that I can't punch you in the face - and you know it, and you take advantage of that - makes me want to punch you in the face even more".

One feud, in particular, was turned up a notch on SmackDown LIVE this week after Shane McMahon confirmed he would battle AJ Styles at WrestleMania 33.
