AJ Styles did not appear as scheduled at last night’s SmackDown live event in Odessa, TX, and it was announced that he was injured at Friday’s RAW live event at MSG. Styles not appearing at last night’s live event in Odessa would suggest that he suffered some sort of legitimate injury sometime during the past week.
Dave Meltzer discussed the injury spot on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio and mentioned that it was announced at the Odessa show on Saturday night by WWE that Styles suffered an injury at Madison Square Garden. Meltzer couldn’t elaborate much details regarding the injury but said he should have more information soon.
“So last night at Madison Square Garden it was supposed to be AJ Styles & Nakamura against Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn and it turned into a singles match with Nakamura and Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn interfered. AJ did make the save. They actually did an injury angle before the match but I didn’t know if that was. People said that they thought it was an injury. The injury was probably suffered before hand and this was an angle set up to cover for it and then tonight in Odessa, Styles wasn’t there and they actually announced before the show that Styles was injured in Madison Square Garden, so that’s all I really know now. Don’t know the severity. We will probably know more in the morning.”
Styles is scheduled to defend the WWE Championship against Nakamura at WrestleMania 34 on April 8.
