Randy Orton and AJ Styles officially kicked off their feud on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live. Orton walked out and gave a promo talking about what he’s done and he put his accomplishments up against what Styles did in TNA Wrestling and on the independent scene.
At one point, Orton said Styles was busy getting a tan with Dixie Carter, the former majority owner of TNA Wrestling.
The news got back to Carter. A fan mentioned on Twitter that she was trending shortly after Orton mentioned her. She appeared to take it in stride and said, “.@AJStylesOrg & I never had to tan as we were always golden. My historical recollection is different than yours @RandyOrton. #SDLive”
Orton is scheduled to face Styles at WrestleMania. WWE has not yet officially announced the match because Orton will be one of the names in the gauntlet match with Kofi Kingston next week and management wants to wait until that show to officially announce the match.
