AJ Styles opens up about the worst bump of his wrestling career
Speaking about the worst bump of his career, Styles spoke about a bump during a match in TNA against former WWE Intercontinental Champion D-Lo Brown. Styles revealed that he was knocked out for a few moments during the match:
I was talking about this the other night, and I actually had forgotten about it until someone brought the match up. The guy had said, 'I remember your match with D-Lo Brown in TNA where he Frog Splashed you from off a ladder and put you through a table.' It made me remember laying there and seeing D-Lo jump off the ladder, and then it just went blank. I don't remember anything else until I came to and was just laying there.
I just remember being in like a dream state. I remember telling myself like, 'You got to get up!' It was weird. I got up and everything was ok to finish the match. I don't remember bumping my head or having a knot, and I don't know if it was just the impact knocking the breath out of me and losing consciousness for a second. I don't know what happened, because I remember what we were supposed to do and everything. D-Lo was probably 250 at the time, coming from an 8 foot ladder to the outside, so that's probably at least 10 foot for a big man coming down to the floor. That was not fun. H/T: WrestlingINC
