When A.J. Styles accepted his WrestleMania challenge, WWE fans were startled to see Edge turn villain.
Edge issued a challenge to any superstar who wants to battle in the ring against him at WrestleMania 38 last week on Monday Night Raw. We found out who would face the “Rated R Superstar” inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, at the end of Raw.
Edge requested that anyone come to the ring to challenge him at WrestleMania, and A.J. Styles was the one who responded. Edge then launched a barrage of insults at Styles before hitting him and kicking him in the groin.
Edge turned heel after hitting Styles with not one, but two con-chair- to’s, if that wasn’t clear enough.
Edge’s heel turn on A.J. Styles has caused a stir among WWE fans
Wrestling fans reacted angrily to Edge’s public transformation into a villain before his battle against Styles.

Since Edge’s return to the ring at the 2020 Royal Rumble, fans have been anticipating a future match with Styles. In the Men’s Royal Rumble bout, the two had a stare-down. It’s happening now, but who’d have guessed Edge would become the villain in the feud?
Edge’s WrestleMania 36 match was set up with Randy Orton striking him with an RKO and a con-chair-to two years ago. Styles is smacked with two straight con-chair-two to’s years later by the “Rated R Superstar.”
WWE has confirmed that Edge will face A.J. Styles at WrestleMania. We’ll keep you updated on which night of the two-night event the match will take place.
