As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Shane McMahon vs. AJ Styles was officially added to WrestleMania 33. A lot of fans aren’t happy with Styles face Shane O’Mac at the Show of Shows, but that isn’t the case with WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross.
JR explained why Shane vs. Styles at WrestleMania 33 won’t disappoint in his latest blog entry:
“Enjoyed the AJ Styles content on SD Live and am not one to take issue with AJ’s booking at Wrestlemania versus Shame McMahon. AJ’s greatness will shine through in Orlando on April 2 and Shane’s alpha male personality will push him to be better than he likely actually is. This will end up being a better booking than many perceive plus it was, as the creative worked its way out, the best available option for, arguably, the best in ring talent in the world, AJ Styles, which is a whole other story. I look forward to watching these two do all that’s humanly possible to steal the show in Orlando.
Nonetheless, I find that it could well be ill advised to try to hard to make AJ the old school villain in this matter. That’s not happening with today’s fans especially at Wrestlemania. The good news is that it isn’t necessary to have AJ the ‘heel’ as the personal issue is enough.”
