The WWE have had a horrible time with injuries over the past year or so, as evidenced by the stars on show at WrestleMania 32 last week.
John Cena couldn't wrestle because he's still rehabbing a shoulder injury that required surgery, Seth Rollins wasn't seen at all thanks to the ACL tear he suffered at the end of the year that still needs month to heal, and Randy Orton wasn't delivering RKO's to anyone thanks to shoulder issues keeping him out of action.
The last thing that the WWE needs right now is more injuries. However, that may have happened last night as AJ Styles reportedly got hurt during a match in the SmackDown tapings.
According to a report from Wrestling Inc, Styles may have suffered a neck injury in a match against Alberto Del Rio on Tuesday night in a match that was being recorded for SmackDown.
Del Rio apparently botched a move badly and it saw the number one contender for Roman Reigns' WWE Heavyweight Championship dropped on his head.
"Del Rio reportedly botched a move and Styles landed on his head, then finished the match with a roll-up," the report stated.
"Styles left up the ramp and was holding his neck."
According to a correspondent for Wrestling Inc, the injury seemed pretty bad.
"We heard from another correspondent in attendance who said the spot looked pretty bad from where he was sitting in the 8th row," they said.
The roll-up is a big giveaway that an injury has occured. AJ Styles is the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship and just beat rising star Sami Zayn clean in a one-on-one singles match.
There is no way in hell the plan was for the match to end with a roll-up when they are trying to build up Styles as a legitimate threat to Reigns' title.
If Styles is actually injured then that is a huge blow to the WWE, who will have to change their plans drastically ahead of the Payback PPV.
