WWE seems to have a lot on their list of plans for the coming Wrestlemania 33 pay-per-view, but more importantly, for the future of their superstars. One such questionable athlete is the "Phenomenal One," AJ Styles, who the company may have big plans for.
The entire year of 2016 paved the way for AJ Styles, entering the WWE Royal Rumble 2016 as his debut participation for the company. From there, he accomplished numerous accolades and created feuds that brought the company to heights. Styles became champion at one point, but even the 19-year veteran was relieved of the belt.
According to Cage Side Seats, there may be a reason for all of it, especially as WWE seems to have a whole lot of ideas floating around. One hint is to push the "Eater of Worlds," Bray Wyatt, all the way to the top of the company rankings. After John Cena allegedly won the belt for a 16th time-and ending the reign quickly-the company seemed to focus more on those next in line. In this case, Bray Wyatt was given that spotlight during the WWE Elimination Chamber 2017 pay-per-view after defeating five other superstars respectively. It was also said that after a Triple Threat Match with John Cena losing via pinfall, Wyatt was then given a more solid "push" into being champion material.
Moreover, the WWE seems to have some undisclosed plans for the Wrestlemania 33 main event, given that WWE Royal Rumble 2017 winner Randy Orton refuses to fight Bray Wyatt for the championship. Because of it, a 10-man Battle Royal was held to determine the contender, which unfortunately ended in a draw between Styles and former Wyatt Family member Luke Harper. According to Sky Sports, Smackdown Live will come up with a decision soon enough, as per Smackdown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan.
Wrestlemania 33 will be shown on April 2, 2017. Who do you think will go up against Bray Wyatt for the belt? More than that, what is to happen to Randy Orton in the grandest stage of them all? Stay posted for more updates.
