The rivalry between AJ Styles and Randy Orton will come to a head on Jan. 13 when the two rivals battle on WWE Raw.
The match was announced on Monday's WWE Raw, just before Styles took on Akira Tozawa in singles action. In an effort to get under the skin of Orton, Styles used Orton's signature moves including the Draping DDT and RKO, which he picked up the victory with. Following his victory, Styles struck Orton's pose in mocking fashion.
Last Monday, Orton faked a knee injury just to deliver an RKO to Styles.

The two have clashed three times in singles action during their careers. Orton defeated Styles on the Mar. 17, 2017 episode of WWE SmackDown and the Dec. 16, 2019 episode of WWE Raw. Styles picked up a win at WrestleMania 35.
Also announced for next Monday is Rusev against Bobby Lashley in singles action. The two have been feuding since September when it was revealed Lana was cheating on Rusev with Lashley. Rusev promised "The Bulgarian Brute" would be returning next Monday and Liv Morgan, who was revealed as Lana's lover during last Monday's wedding, will be in Rusev's corner.
