AJ Styles wants to forget about his from WM 35 Randy Orton clash

AJ Styles has been in the wrestling industry for 25 years and 8 years span his WWE career. One of the most underrated matches of AJ includes him clashing against Randy Orton at WM 35. AJ Styles recently appeared on Fanatics Live Stream on Xavier Woods’ UpUpDownDown YouTube Channel, where he shared his candid thoughts about the 2019 event.

“That’s definitely one to forget because the lights were blinding people. We were supposed to go two or one, and then, of course, Brock [Brock Lesnar] gets to do anything he wants, so he switched it. By the time we went out there, the lights had come on and blinded half the stadium. I was pissed. You know who was even more pissed than me? Randy [Randy Orton]. I knew I didn’t have to get mad if Randy was mad”, said AJ Styles.

Although the WrestleMania 35 match failed miserably due to the lighting setup, WWE fans hope to see a legendary fight between LA Knight and AJ Styles, giving it their all without any distractions at the April 2024 event, and are eager to see their favorite superstar win.

Randy Orton wrote on Instagram, “For the live crowd that saw this 👆🏼tonight during my match at #WM #wrestlemania at Met Life Stadium tonight, I would like to apologize on behalf of @WWE for screwing up and shining a bright light in your eyes for 95% of our match. You missed a really great fucking match.”

Although most of the fans were unable to enjoy the match, the rest of the event went smoothly compared to the said match.
