What's the story?

There have been a lot of reports about an injury bug that's seemingly bitten a bunch of WWE Superstars. Seth Rollins and Sasha Banks are reported to have relatively minor injuries that will keep them out of action for a short period of time.

2-Time WWE Champion AJ Styles was also added to that list, reported to have hernia. The Phenomenal One took to Twitter to respond to reports about a hernia.

In case you didn't know...

AJ Styles is currently set to challenge for the WWE Championship once again inside the Elimination Chamber, taking on Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy and Mustafa Ali.

It'll be the third attempt for Styles since losing the championship to Daniel Bryan in November. Despite losing his rematches, Styles has consistently been in the WWE title picture.

Heading into WrestleMania, his rumoured opponent is The Viper Randy Orton, so it's possible that it ends up being a non-title feud.

The heart of the matter

A fan had asked Styles on Twitter why he was wrestling with a hernia. Styles responded by simply revealing that there was never any hernia, to begin with.

He then proceeded to take a shot at the "reports" of his injury.


AJ Styles has been a little vocal recently about reports from websites. When another website reported that Styles had signed a new contract, he responded saying that he knew nothing about any contract being signed.

Either way, it's good to know that Styles doesn't have an injury, especially heading into a big match at Elimination Chamber. It's very likely that he has some nagging injuries of sorts, but nothing that is enough to keep him out of action.

What's next?

The road to WrestleMania 35 continues for The Phenomenal One, and this year, he walks into his fourth straight WrestleMania. What will be in store for AJ Styles?
