While Shane has had many memorable matches in his career including his battle with The Undertaker last year at WrestleMania, the 47-year-old McMahon has always been best known for his reckless style that does not lend itself well to growing older.
"It always comes down to two people", a modest Styles said recently on the Sam Roberts Podcast when asked if he carried Reigns and Cena to great matches.
The latest episode of WWE SmackDown Live saw some exciting matches aired from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Tuesday (14 March). This combined with his antics in the gorilla position following last week's SmackDown are providing a nice platform for a WrestleMania match with McMahon.
This led to Styles' attack on Shane this week.
As you'll be able to see in the screenshot below, Styles' profile is alongside the likes of former WWE stars AJ Lee and Adam Rose, and they even went through the effort updating his biography to highlight that he's no longer a WWE star. Even though Styles has been lucky most of his career to avoid any major injury, his body will still wear down soon enough. Known the world over for his in-ring prowess, thrilling aerial maneuvers and supreme confidence, Styles found success everywhere he's traveled, accumulating an incredibly impressive résumé, capped off by sports-entertainment's most prestigious title, the WWEChampionship. This has included a match which not only headlined a PPV but was hosted in a Hell In A Cell as well. This year, with singles matches on the horizon setup for both the Intercontinental Championship and the United States Championship, one has to wonder if WWE has plans to include the Ladder Match during one of the bouts at this years Wrestlemania.
Since then, the ladder match has become a staple for WWE at Wrestlemania.
"The prospect of AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon does absolutely nothing for me", he said. The company is bringing more real-life couples into the storylines, and they've finally and officially recognized that John Cena and Nikki Bella are together, and they're willing to fight side-by-side.
According to PWInsider, there is speculation that AJ Styles might be moved from SmackDown Live to Monday Night Raw.
Regardless of who Styles faces, he must headline WrestleMania next year. He deserves it for the work he has put in and for the match he is set to carry at this year's 'Mania.
