Report: AJ Styles Missed Live Events Due To Injury

The "Phenomenal One" absent from WWE's event despite being advertised.

During Friday's WWE live event at Madison Square Garden, the current WWE Champion AJ Styles was slated to team up with his WrestleMania 34 opponent Shinsuke Nakamura to take on Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn. Before the match began, the two former NXT Champions ambushed Styles & Nakamura.

The official for the match threw up the "X", which lead to AJ Styles being helped to the back.

"The Face That Runs The Place" eventually came back to the ring to save Nakamura from getting beat down by Owens & Zayn. There were photos that surfaced of Styles exiting the ring and the caption of those photos noted that Styles was limping, but nonetheless walked out on his own. Styles was set to appear at WWE's live event in Odessa, TX last night, but he did not compete as advertised.

UPDATE:

PWInsider has reported AJ Styles is injured and will be backstage at Raw being attended to by WWE medical staff. The extent of the injury is unknown.

AJ Styles recently defended his WWE Championship successfully in a six-pack challenge at 'Fastlane'. To read up on how Styles pulled off the victory, click here.
