AJ Styles was taken out by Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso on last Friday night’s SmackDown episode. Styles was scheduled to sign a contract for the tag team match with John Cena against The Bloodline. However, Cena will have to search for a Superstar who can replace AJ Styles.
WWE Fastlane 2023 will take place on October 7 in Indianapolis. There are two more episodes of SmackDown remaining before the PLE. Here are our WWE Fastlane 2023 predictions on who can replace AJ Styles:
1. Randy Orton can replace AJ Styles at Fastlane 2023
The Apex Predator Randy Orton has been out of action for more than a year. Orton is good friends with Cena in real life. Plus, he lost precious time of his career due to an assault from The Bloodline. Hence, he can come back to team up with Cena.
2. Jey Uso can replace AJ Styles at Fastlane 2023

Jey Uso has moved to RAW. He said that he was done with The Bloodline, but he would like to have a chance to wrestle Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa, who cost him the Undisputed Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
3. Cody Rhodes
Cody Rhodes will be the next top babyface of WWE. John Cena has raised his hand in the past. Rhodes is not done with The Bloodline yet, and he can use this match to re-enter the Undisputed Universal Championship picture.
4. LA Knight

LA Knight called out Roman Reigns on SmackDown two weeks ago. If he wants a shot at the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, the best way is to destroy Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa at Fastlane.
5. The Rock
This is a little outlandish prediction but The Rock recently returned to WWE. He is rumored to main event WrestleMania XL with Roman Reigns. If that match is indeed happening, the best way to prep up will be a tag team match with Cena against The Bloodline.
