Whilst playing on his Mixer account, AJ Styles confirmed the recent injury reports and revealed what point of his WWE WrestleMania 35 match it occurred.
AJ was pulled from his advertised meet and greet at WrestleMania AXXESS on Monday and didn’t perform on SmackDown Live either due to the injury.
“When you take a suplex from about 15 feet in the air… You know, I think I hit my left side before my right, just a little bit, and that’s totally on me, totally my fault,” Styles said of the injury. “It kind of knocked my hips out of place and then everything else, all those muscles in your butt and your back, swell up and then those muscles press on your nerve endings, and next thing you know you can’t walk the next day.
“But, got x-rays [on Wednesday]and they were all positive, I didn’t break anything. So, as far as that looks, I should be good to go here soon.”
AJ noted how he suffered soft tissue damage from the impact, but did state that he is now back walking around and hopes to be in the ring as early as next week, which is fantastic news. There is no word on if AJ will be part of the upcoming Superstar Shakeup episodes.
