AJ Styles has been pulled from upcoming WWE live events this weekend to rest up according to multiple wrestling media reports on Thursday. Styles, who didn’t wrestle at the Smackdown taping this week in Des Moines, was scheduled to wrestle in Greenville on Friday, Raleigh on Saturday and Sunday in Columbia.

Styles is expected to make an appearance at the RAW taping next Monday night in Greensboro to hype his main event match with Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on May 22 in New Jersey. He had been experiencing back problems before signing with WWE, although it isn’t known if that is the issue now.
