WWE star AJ Styles issued the following tweet on Saturday apologizing for missing weekend WWE live events in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Styles, who was scheduled to wrestle at live events in Greenville on Friday, Raleigh on Saturday and Sunday in Columbia, revealed he suffered an ankle injury.
WWE pulled Styles from the events to rest up for his Extreme Rules main event against Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in an Extreme Rules match. He noted he would be at RAW this Monday night in Greensboro as expected.
For those of you who were expecting to see AJ Styles this weekend, I apologize. Banged my ankle up pretty good, but I’ll be ready for RAW.
