Smackdown live Commissioner Shane McMahon has challenged AJ Styles at WrestleMania despite The Phenomenal One being fired from the Blue Brand.
AJ Styles took out his frustration of not having a match at WrestleMania on Shane McMahon, in the form of putting Shane's head through a auto window.
But he wasn't done quite yet. The attack ended with Styles throwing McMahon into a vehicle window that shattered into pieces. Daniel Bryan then fired AJ Styles. After that fight, Miz took the stage and introduced himself and Maryse.

It didn't take long for McMahon to recover and set an anticipated match with Styles for the "Showcase of the Immortals", though we will have to wait a week to see where WWE goes with the new booking. SmackDown general manager Daniel Bryan then entered and announced a mixed tag team match at WrestleMania 33 with John Cena and Nikki Bella against The Miz and Maryse. With that, Cena and Bella hit the ring as Miz and Maryse cowered away. Styles dared Bryan to fire him, so that's exactly what Bryan did while security escorted Styles out of the building.
Elsewhere, WWE Champion Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton exchanged words for the first time since The Viper's sinister act of arson at the Wyatt Family Compound two weeks ago.
Mojo Rawley squared off with Dolph Ziggler after they got personal with one another in the backstage area last week. The Viper said he became close to Wyatt just so he could hurt him. There are also other rumours floating around that WWE may be looking to others outside of the company such as Victoria or Kelly Kelly, who could make returns to huge pops from the crowd if they were to also be included in this match as well.
It was an incredibly exciting match which saw Austin Aries outlast and defeat TJ Perkins, The Brian Kendrick, Akira Tozawa, and Tony Nese. Graves said that he is excited for anything involving Styles because he believes that Styles is one of the greatest wrestlers of our generation. 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.
