AJ Styles Says Royal Rumble Injury Was His Fault, Gives ETA on Return

aj styles injury royal rumble

Edge may have been the one to spear AJ Styles when his injury occurred during the Royal Rumble, but the WWE star says the injury was entirely his fault – and luckily, he won’t be out long.

Styles talked about the injury while streaming on his Mixer channel and said the following:

“Just so everything is clear, Edge did nothing, absolutely 100% nothing wrong. His move, his spear, everything was perfect the way he did it. If there is any blame put on anybody about what I’m dealing with with my shoulder it’s me. 100% me. I was ‘over-brothered’ as they say. I just went crazy with my bump there. The only problem with flipping over the way that I did was the first thing to hit was my left shoulder. And I thought I had dislocated my shoulder.

They wanted to get me out of there right away and I told them I can’t roll under the bottom rope. That’s not how the Rumble works. I said ‘I’m staying in, somebody is going to have to throw me over.’”

The WWE star confirmed he suffered a separated shoulder during the spot, and in a subsequent stream noted that x-rays show nothing was broken.

As for when he’ll return … AJ says he’s already begun physical therapy and has all the faith in the world that he’ll heal up before WrestleMania 36.

::fingers crossed::
