Backstage Report On AJ Styles’ Current Status

AJ Styles

The WWE Universe hasn’t seen AJ Styles for months after the Phenomenal One suffered a broken ankle in December of last year.

Toward the end of 2022, Styles took to social media to inform fans of his injury. The post revealed he was ok despite having a broken ankle, which thankfully didn’t require surgery, but it would be a long time before he could return to the ring.

Just want you guys to know that I’m ok. Broken ankle is what I’m dealing with. No surgery, this just takes some time to recover. This will be the longest I’ve ever been out of the ring. Thanks for the prayers and get well wishes.

The Phenomenal One’s last match saw him team up with his OC stablemates Karl Anderson and Mia Yim against The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest, Finn Balor and Rhea Ripley.

Since his injury was confirmed any update on his condition and a possible return date has been few and far between, but now some news surrounding the leader of the OC.

According to a report on PWInsider Elite, backstage news on Styles’ current status discloses the former WWE Champion was “not around Wrestlemania weekend” as he is still in recovery and getting “ready to perform”.

The report further states Styles hasn’t “been at the WWE Performance Center or anywhere else on the road for the company”.
