Edge and AJ Styles to run it back at WrestleMania Backlash.

Coming out of WrestleMania 38 where Edge got a win over AJ Styles, their on-screen feud continued because of Damian Priest’s involvement in their first match. It is now official that Styles and Edge are going to go one-on-one again at WrestleMania Backlash on May 8th.

The challenge was issued by Edge during his promo segment on the 4/18 Raw. Later on, Styles was interviewed and accepted the challenge and when he did, the lights began to flickering and ultimately cut out. When the lights came back on, Styles was caught in between Edge and Priest and they beat him down.
