We previously reported that AJ Styles was injured at the house show in Madison Square Garden. While it looked like he was okay since he did a run-in and saved Nakamura from Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, the Phenomenal One was still pulled from Saturday’s house show.
Now fans are starting to get a little worried that Styles could be actually injured.
“So last night at Madison Square Garden it was supposed to be AJ Styles and Nakamura against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn,” Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio. “It turned into a singles match with Nakamura against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn interfered and AJ did make the save and he was there. They actually did an injury angle before the match.”
“But tonight, I didn’t know if that was — I mean people said there was probably an injury. The injury was probably suffered before [the MSG show] and this was an angle set up to cover for it and then tonight in Odesa, Styles wasn’t there and they actually announced before the show that Styles was injured in Madison Square Garden so that’s really all I know right now. I don’t know the severity, I’ll probably know more in the morning.”
It’s awful that we’re even thinking about AJ Styles having an injury this close to WrestleMania. After all, he’s set up in a match that a lot of fans have been begging to see on a WWE stage against Shinsuke Nakamura. It just goes to show you can never tell when something could go wrong so let’s just cross our fingers on this one.
