AJ Styles’ Future After WrestleMania
AJ Styles was a part of the best match of WrestleMania in the Boneyard Match with the Undertaker. The image of a fake arm popping out of the grave led to the WWE Universe speculating that Styles could be away from the ring for a long time after the match, as this is something that has happened in the past after Buried Alive matches.
Meltzer confirmed this, saying that Styles would stay away from programming for a while to sell the effect of the match, but did say that Styles was not injured. There were rumors that he had been undergoing surgery after the match wrote him off the air.
“AJ is probably selling it for a little while but AJ is way too valuable and not hurt. Like if AJ was going to get surgery, I could have seen like, ‘Okay, AJ is getting surgery and this was the write-off.’ That was not it. AJ is not injured. That was just the finish that they went with and now he’s got to live through this somehow and be unburied alive.”Dave Meltzer
It will be interesting to see in what form AJ Styles next return to WWE.
