AJ Styles confirms that he suffered a broken ankle during WWE live event

As previously noted, AJ Styles possibly suffered an ankle/lower leg injury during Thursday night’s WWE live event in Hershey, PA. Styles is said to be dealing with a legitimate injury and he did not wrestle at Friday night’s live event in Toronto, Canada. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, Styles was sent to Tampa, FL to get his ankle checked out. Johnson added that Styles was not backstage at Smackdown which was also in Tampa.

On Saturday morning, Styles confirmed via Twitter that he suffered a broken ankle…

“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.”

In fan video footage, it appears that Styles was injured after being dumped over the top rope.
