Regarding his injury status, AJ Styles has released a statement.
At the house show on Thursday in Hershey, Pennsylvania, the former WWE Champion faced off against Finn Balor, Damian Priest, and Rhea Ripley alongside Karl Anderson, Mia Yim, and them.
It came to an end shortly after Styles hurt his ankle and needed assistance getting to the backstage area.
In a statement today, Styles noted that despite having a broken ankle, he wouldn’t require surgery:
Styles told his fans…
“Just want you guys to know that I’m ok. Broken ankle is what I’m dealing with. No surgery, this just takes some time to recover. This will be the longest I’ve ever been out of the ring. Thanks for the prayers and get well wishes.”
AJ Styles Better Than Bret Hart?
In the latest episode of the Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, WWE legend Road Dogg claimed that Styles is a better wrestler than Hart.
“I’m saying he’s a better wrestler. [Styles] has been working very hard ever since he showed up at the [Royal] Rumble. He’s older now and he’s slower now and he wants to work smarter now, but when he first got here and I think he was very much in his prime, the road puts it on you and that life.
He further went on to praise the former WWE Champion and put him on top of the list when it comes to working hard.
He’s tired now, but man when he first got there, nobody works like he does. He works like everything he does in the ring, bell-to-bell, is real, and that’s what I love about AJ Styles. AJ works so hard on making every single thing he does look real. It’s so admirable and such a lost art that it’s still great to see him do it.“
