UK wrestler Lionheart severely injured in a match with AJ Styles

UK wrestler Lionheart suffered what appeared to be a broken neck in his match with AJ Styles last night in Preston, England for Preston City Wrestling. Lionheart is the promotion’s top heel. At the end of the match as Styles was setting up for the Styles clash it appeared that Lionheart tucked his chin in similar to the match Styles had with Roderick Strong in January and Lionheart landed on his head. Medical staff came out immediately. Lionheart issued the following statement today:


Words cannot describe the physical and emotional roller coaster of the past 30+ hours…

To update, my neck is broken in 2 places. I have had an MRI and the positive spin is there is no immediate requirement for surgery, although that may change…

I don’t want to bore anyone or appear to fish for sympathy as I will comment more in depth in time… All I want to say is that the outpouring of support, calls, messages etc has been truly overwhelming… Reading them all has reduced me to tears more times than I can count… I thank you, and I love you… I know not what the future holds, and as emotional and drained as I am, I will fight back from this…

Much love.
