McMahon announces another WrestleMania 38 rematch
On the night before Night One of WrestleMania 38, AJ Styles defeated Edge with a ringside distraction from Damian Priest. Ever since then, Edge and Priest have formed a team, and have targeted Styles. On RAW post-WrestleMania, Edge and Priest double-teamed Styles, and then last week’s show featured a singles match between Styles and Priest. The match ended when Priest disappeared.
This week’s RAW featured a dark backstage segment with Edge and Priest, which you can see below. Edge issued the challenge for WrestleMania Backlash, and Styles later accepted during a locker room interview with Sarah Schreiber. During that segment, the locker room suddenly filled with lightning as Styles told Schreiber to leave for her own safety. The lights then went out and came back on to Edge and Priest surrounding Styles. They beat him down and slammed a cabinet door onto his shoulder several times. Edge and Priest ended the segment by laughing at Styles as he groaned in pain.
