Pro wrestling fans had their hearts in their mouth when WWE Superstar AJ Styles was abruptly pulled out from teaming with John Cena on Fastlane, replaced by LA Knight. Styles victimized by Solo Sikoa from The Bloodline left many wondering – what is the status of the ring maestro? Is he injured or opting out? Well, turns out, it’s business as usual in the wrestling world.
In conversations with a seasoned member from the creative team, Ringside News sought the lowdown on AJ Styles’ current scenario. And the truth is, Styles is well and simply playing out a storyline. The Phenomenal One, as he’s fondly referred to, still holds significant influence in WWE. His absence is temporary and does not suggest an impending six-month hiatus. Rest assured, he will reclaim his spotlight very soon; the question is when?
Interestingly, Styles’ sudden departure gave LA Knight, the chance to fill in the boots at WWE’s Fastlane, undoubtedly sending waves through the wrestling community. Styles, however, remains unfazed. His wrestling résumé is overflowing with accolades, including the WWE Championship, United States Championship, and Intercontinental Championship. Not just that, he also holds titles in TNA, NJPW, and others.
His sabbatical from Fastlane might have left a void for his fans, but in this game of swift turns and sudden change, Styles can re-emerge seeking revenge on his perpetrators. Such a storyline would seamlessly introduce him back on the battlefield post-Fastlane.
