AJ responded by saying: "What are you going to do, fire me?"

This segment looks to be building towards the heavily rumoured Wrestlemania match between AJ and Shane. It all feels very reality TV, but there's a lot of star power here, including Daniel Bryan playing his role as the object of Miz's derision for most of the year. He'll get his revenge through his "extended family member" John Cena, which is about the best we can expect considering the circumstances of his health.


AJ Styles attacks Shane McMahon.

After weeks of back and forth, deciding a number one contender for Bray Wyatt's WWE Championship, one was finally determined last week. As a result of that incident, SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan fired Styles and kicked him out of the arena. Styles expressed how SmackDown has screwed him over four or five times recently between never getting a one-on-one rematch with John Cena and then losing his earned WWE title shot at WrestleMania 33.


Gratuitous Camera Angles: Shane McMahon was put through a auto window, and WWE's crack production team just happened to have a camera in the vehicle ahead of time. I am a fan of what Shane McMahon brings as a character to the show. "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. and when the timing's right, screw 'em", he said before swearing to God that he would take the title at WrestleMania. I was always a fan of the "Macho Man" Randy Savage vs. Crush match at WrestleMania X.

Becky Lynch fought against Natayla and picked up a quick win. It is of course Wrestlemania season and while AJ Styles had been rumoured to be facing WWE Smackdown commissioner Shane McMahon on the grandest stage of them all, the storyline only began to come in to its own last night.


WrestleMania has always been the biggest show of the year, meant to highlight the best talent on the roster. To that end, Styles did a solid job in recounting all the ways in which he got jobbed in order to justify his anger at McMahon. The depths of Styles' barbaric side really rose to the occasion on a night in which few other storylines, and even less in-ring action, mattered.
