AJ Styles was reported to be injured during his WrestleMania match against Randy Orton. He traveled back to his home on Monday to get his scans done. He missed the meet and greet appearance at WrestleMania Axxess and was not at SmackDown this week.
Styles has now confirmed his injury on Wednesday while playing the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds video game on his Mixer account and unlike previous reports that he suffered the injury while hitting the Phenomenal forearm outside the ring, it was during the Superplex delivered by Orton at the final end of the match when the injury happened.
“When you take a suplex from about 15 feet in the air… You know, I think I hit my left side before my right, just a little bit, and that’s totally on me, totally my fault. It kind of knocked my hips out of place and then everything else, all those muscles in your butt and your back, swell up and then those muscles press on your nerve endings, and next thing you know you can’t walk the next day. But, got x-rays [on Wednesday] and they were all positive, I didn’t break anything. So, as far as that looks, I should be good to go here soon.”
He also mentioned that he is already walking around and hoping to return to ring next week. However, there is no official word yet about Styles attending the Superstar Shakeup of RAW and SmackDown from Montreal next week.
