AJ Styles last competed on December 29th at the WWE Live Event in Hershey, Pennsylvania. In that show, Styles teamed up with Karl Anderson and Mia Yim to face Finn Balor, Damian Priest, and Rhea Ripley in a Six-Person Tag Team match.
However, during the match, Styles suffered an injury, and the match ended as quickly as possible. The former world champion later revealed that he has sustained an ankle injury which doesn’t require surgery.
PWInsider reported that AJ Styles is still recovering from the injury. They also noted that Styles didn’t appear for events during WrestleMania weekend in Los Angelis, California.
“We’ve been asked a lot about AJ Styles. He was not around WrestleMania weekend and we are told it’s just a matter of him being cleared to return from the broken ankle he suffered in December and being ready to perform. We haven’t heard he’s been at the WWE Performance Center or anywhere else on the road for the company.”
WWE had a huge plan for The O.C. before AJ Styles suffered an ankle injury in December.
