I doubt this sacking will stick, as seconds before SmackDown Live went off the air, McMahon said that after Styles actions in the parking lot, he now has an opponent for WrestleMania, Shane McMahon himself.
So last night, AJ Styles flew off the handle and put Shane-O Mac's Head-O Mac through a auto window.
But he wasn't done quite yet.
AJ Styles attacked Shane McMahon backstage and threw him through a auto window. As Styles tried to leave the arena, Bryan stopped him, called him a coward and said he lost all respect for him.
Are John Cena & Nikki Bella going to face Miz & Maryse at The Ultimate Thrill Ride? 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. Styles said he had to "jump through hoops like a circus monkey" to get a match at WrestleMania 33, only to be left out of WWE's biggest pay-per-view show.
Also, on a special edition of "Miz TV" Daniel Bryan announced that The Miz and Maryse will battle John Cena and Nikki Bella at The Ultimate Thrill Ride on Sunday, April 2, live on Sky Sports Box Office.More news: Almost a million people lose power in MI after high winds

Bryan then confronted and fired Styles during a heated discussion in the locker room area. As Bray celebrated his successful defense Randy Orton came out and came face to face with the WWE Champion.
Mojo Rawley defeated Dolph Ziggler via countout after getting thrown over the top rope three times.
After a controversial battle royal a few weeks ago to decide a new #1 Contender for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania, AJ Styles would be put into a one-on-one match with Luke Harper to decide the #1 Contender and Styles would win this match, seemingly earning the right to challenge for the WWE Title on "The Grandest Stage of Them All".
The ladder match, which first got noticed at Wrestlemania X, was fought between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon and is still regarded by many as one of the greatest matches in Wrestlemania history. And that reminds me of every time you go in the ring and you immitate my moves and you do it very poorly - and that really, really makes me want to punch you in the face. After weeks of clearly being better than Raw, SmackDown took a step back with relatively meaningless matches and slow pacing.
