It’s not too early. With WrestleMania 35 less than a month away, it’s time to start putting the card together. We already have a few matches set up but there is still a lot that needs to be done. A lot of the matches have already been set up or even challenged for on the weekly TV show, including one grudge match this week on SmackDown Live. It didn’t take long to make it official.

As announced on the official WrestleMania Twitter account, AJ Styles will face Randy Orton at WrestleMania 35. This match has long been rumored for the card and was teased over the last few weeks. Orton has recently been calling out Styles for taking a long time to get to WWE while Styles has said that the company is being taken over by people like him. Styles challenged Orton this week on SmackDown Live.

And so, here’s that challenge. Check out Styles calling out Orton for WrestleMania:

Opinion: This is the least surprising match we’ve had for the card in awhile as it was all but announced a few months ago. Styles vs. Orton has never taken place on the big stage so it’s a nice choice to go with in a situation like this. Both of them are guaranteed for at least a good match so under the right circumstances, we could be in for a great one here. Just let them build it up with good talking and let the wrestling work as well as it can.
