Edge vs. AJ Styles set for WWE WrestleMania Backlash

Edge challenged AJ Styles to a match for next month's premium live event.

Edge and AJ Styles will meet again at WrestleMania Backlash next month.

During tonight’s Raw, Edge issued a challenge to AJ Styles for WrestleMania Backlash on May 8, saying he was going to be the one to put the stake into Styles’ heart. After the return from commercial, Styles accepted the challenge before the lights flickered. Styles and Damien Priest then appeared and attacked Styles before walking away.

The two previously met at WrestleMania 38. The finish of their match had Priest distracting Styles as he was going for his finish, allowing Edge to cut off Styles and pin him to win the match. Priest has since fully aligned himself with Edge.

Here is the current lineup for WrestleMania Backlash, which will take place at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island:

  • Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in an I Quit match
  • Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins
  • RK-Bro vs. The Usos in a winner take all match for both the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team titles
  • AJ Styles vs. Edge
