Another match has been set for WrestleMania 33, as SmackDown commissioner Shane McMahon chose himself to take on AJ Styles.
McMahon announced the news on SmackDown Live Tuesday night, via WWE:
“@AJStylesOrg says he doesn’t have an opponent at @WrestleMania…HE DOES NOW!” – @shanemcmahon #SDLive https://t.co/rLKGFtqq5p

WrestleMania 33 will take place April 2 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
Styles has had a problem with McMahon’s—and general manager Daniel Bryan’s—decision-making in recent months, seemingly holding back the wrestler. He specifically voiced his displeasure in not getting a fair rematch after losing his title to John Cena, as well as not having a match at the biggest pay-per-view event of the year.
He later attacked McMahon in the parking lot, setting up even more drama between the two.
However, the commissioner responded by creating a match against himself.
McMahon competed at WrestleMania 32 against Undertaker but lost in a Hell in a Cell match. Styles lost in his battle against Chris Jericho.
