AJ Styles

WWE Champion AJ Styles is currently out with an unspecified injury per a new report by Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com on Monday.

We noted earlier today that it was announced to the live crowd in San Angelo, Texas before on Sunday night that Styles would not be appearing due to injury.

Styles is scheduled to be looked at by WWE medical staff prior to tonight’s RAW in Dallas – where Smackdown Live will also be taped on Tuesday night – to determine the severity of his injury and whether Styles will miss any further in-ring action.

Styles worked in a limited role during the WWE live event at Madison Square Garden this past Friday, where Sami Zayn laid him out with chairshots and he was helped to the back, then returned at the end of his scheduled tag team match with Shinsuke Nakamura.

Styles remains scheduled to defend the WWE Championship against Nakamura at WrestleMania 34 on April 8 in New Orleans.

We will have more on Styles’ injury when it becomes available.
