WWE has given an official update on AJ Styles. They issued the following statement:
“AJ Styles is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury and is recovering way ahead of doctor’s projections.
The Phenomenal One suffered the injury during the Men’s Royal Rumble Match.”
As noted last week, Styles was injured after he was speared by Edge in the Men’s Royal Rumble match. Styles does not blame Edge for the injury. What happened was that Styles was trying to make the move look as devastating as possible and he made himself rotate in the air from the impact of the spear. Unfortunately, he landed awkwardly on his shoulder and then an audible was called to get him eliminated earlier than planned.
Styles is hoping to be back in time for WrestleMania in Tampa. There is no word on what WWE has planned for Styles if he is cleared in time for Mania. In related news, click here for the latest WrestleMania news and rumors.
