British Wrestler Suffers Broken Neck In Match Against AJ Styles

British wrestler “Lionheart” suffered a broken neck after taking a botched Styles Clash during last night’s main event against AJ Styles at a Preston City Wrestling show. Fans described the scene as being very scary. The promotion announced via it’s Twitter that an MRI revealed a broken neck and made the following statement:

“We are looking at the best of a bad situation. He does not need surgery and he is sitting upright without a neck brace on. No nerve damage can be seen and hopefully just a clean break. As we said before he has good movement in his arms and legs.”

Embedded below is an interview with Lionheart prior to his match against AJ Styles:

  • Mike Arienti

    Safety is the priority. However, I don’t think Lionheart had any excuse or reason to blame AJ because there is no way he wouldn’t know what the Styles Clash is.

    • Alex Musso

      If he doesn’t know what he’s doing, then he shouldn’t be in the ring. These matches are scripted and rehearsed. Both competitors need to understand what’s going to happen and go over their spots.

  • Christie Hemme broke her neck while training with him, and now this. hmmmm

  • Peter Whitney

    Roderick Strong a few months ago and now this. Time for a new finisher.

  • fmdof

    he dropped rodderick strong on his head too on a botched clash. I about cringed watching it.

  • allan

    oh please there are far worse moves in regular indy matches. sometimes things happen, should zema ion stop doing moonsaults?

    • Peter Whitney

      Has Ion seriously hurt two wrestlers within a couple months doing so?

  • Fast Eddie

    I am a huge AJ Styles fan. I hope this never happens again.

    • I’m sure he was quite upset.
      If i were a wrestler i’d be a little bit nervous about working with him, though.
