From the WWE rumour mill: Update on AJ Styles' injury status
What's the story?
Styles spoke to Catch-Newz earlier this week and when asked about the match, said:
"If my leg got cut off I'd find a way to make it to WrestleMania. I will be wrestling Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania, don't worry about it, it'll be fine."
In case you didn't know...
Styles appeared briefly at the WWE live event at MSG early last week and WWE did an injury angle with Owens and Zayn attacking him with steel chairs. Styles was then stretchered to the back although he later came out to help Shinsuke Nakamura.
Styles then missed more WWE Live Events last week which led to speculation that Styles was carrying an injury.
The heart of the matter
AJ Styles is set to return to WWE Live Events according to PWInsider. Styles will take part in 8-man tag-team matches along with The New Day. They will face Chad Gable, Shelton Benjamin, Rusev and Aiden English.
8-man tag-matches will limit AJ's time in the ring.
AJ Styles returns to WWE Live Events tomorrow night. Styles appeared on SmackDown Live last week but didn't wrestle or get physical in any way. We will have to wait and see if he wrestles this week on SmackDown.
With WrestleMania around the corner, WWE is doing the right thing by limiting AJ's ring-time until he's fully recovered. Missing a few live events is better than accidentally aggravating his injury this close to WrestleMania.
