Randy Orton and AJ Styles appear to be on a collision course for WrestleMania 35.

Styles attacked The Viper at Fastlane on Sunday, hitting him with a Phenomenal Forearm.

Many expected that to set the stage for their clash at WrestleMania, and The Phenomenal One left no doubt regarding his intentions for Orton.

A non-title match at WrestleMania 35 represents a step down for both men, though.

Styles successfully defended the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura last year in New Orleans, while Orton dropped the United States belt to Jinder Mahal in a Fatal 4-Way match.

Still, Orton vs. Styles would be a marquee matchup nonetheless and something fresh for fans. While they have crossed paths many times on SmackDown Live, the two have yet to battle in a singles bout at a pay-per-view.
