Shinsuke Nakamura, former NXT Champion, recently commented about this year’s WrestleMania during a media conference call. Yahoo Sports Japan covered Nakamura’s comments, where he stated that he would like to face AJ Styles at the event.
Nakamura stated the following:
“If the (WrestleMania) opportunity presented itself, I want to do it. AJ doesn’t have an opponent yet, I’d like to fill that spot. I’ve achieved a lot this year, but there’s much more to do. I want to make more strides over the next year and show my true ability.”
Styles responded to Nakamura’s WrestleMania proposal by tweeting the following:
@ShinsukeN how's this? Sorry, but I do have a match at Wrestlemania. N fact, I'll be headlining Wrestlemania after tonight.

Based on current rumors, they aren’t scheduled for a WrestleMania match together although plans can always change.
