Update On AJ Styles’ InjuryApril 9, 2019
It looks like former WWE Champion AJ Styles is, in fact, dealing with an injury.
Yesterday AJ Styles was supposed to do a VIP signing and he was replaced by WWE Champion Kofi Kingston. Security was informing people in line that the reason Styles was not able to make his scheduled appearance was because Styles was dealing with an injury but could not elaborate on that. Plus it was reported that Styles would not be on Smackdown Live this week.
Also yesterday a fan on Twitter noted that they saw Styles at the airport and he seemed to be moving slowly.
Hey guys, just a heads up. Just saw AJ Styles at the airport and he was moving suuuuuuper slowly. With him leaving town, guessing this means no Smackdown and potential injury? @bryanalvarez @davemeltzerWON

According to Dave Meltzer on last night’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer reported that AJ Styles is dealing with some sort of a hip injury. At this time we do not know if it is a severe injury or not. Also, we do not know if the injury itself was suffered in the match this past Sunday at WrestleMania against Randy Orton.
Styles who has flown back home will not be on tonight’s Smackdown Live and it is unclear how long WWE will be off the road.
