In professional wrestling, AJ Styles reigns as a top-tier name. Despite his illustrious career in the wrestling industry, Styles’ journey in WWE is relatively young, spanning just seven years. A month ago, WWE television wrote him off, but there are reports of his impending return.
Despite having a great 7-year run in WWE, AJ Styles has been absent from weekly television for the most part, as he has sustained some injuries. After making his return, his most recent rivalry was against The Bloodline, where he initially battled against Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso all alone, before John Cena eventually joined the fray.
AJ Styles’ potential comeback adds intrigue to WWE SmackDown
About a month ago, AJ Styles was severely injured by Solo Sikoa in a backstage fight, and was carried off to the nearest medical facility. Despite not sustaining any serious real-life injuries, Styles has been absent from WWE programming for about a month now. However, recent reports suggest that The Phenomenal One is on his way back to the blue brand.
According to recent reports from Ringside News, the 46-year-old wrestling legend has not suffered any injuries as a result of the attack and will soon make his comeback. A specific date hasn’t been revealed as of yet, but it’s being speculated that it might be anytime within the coming few weeks.
AJ Styles may make his return to SmackDown this week, as the October 27th edition of SmackDown marks the final weekly appearance of John Cena, whom Styles initially joined in his battle against The Bloodline. If Styles appears this week, it would create a memorable moment and provide a perfect sendoff for The Cenation Leader, as the two former rivals would team up to take on a common enemy.
Styles poised for WWE return despite Fastlane ambush
On the September 23, 2023, edition of SmackDown, AJ Styles teamed up with John Cena to take on Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa. The two former rivals were supposed to team up and take on the villainous duo at Fastlane. However, Styles was sidelined following a brutal attack by Sikoa, where the latter splashed on top of the veteran from a 20-foot-tall platform. He was later carried off to a nearby hospital in an ambulance.
However, Styles may return soon to the blue brand, looking for vengeance against The Bloodline. With John Cena making his last appearance on SmackDown this week and LA Knight looking to face Roman Reigns at Crown Jewel, this may be the perfect time for The Phenomenal One to enter the mix and level the playing field.
It remains to be seen whether AJ Styles will actually make his return in the coming few weeks. At the moment, he is being advertised for WWE events after Crown Jewel. Stay tuned for further updates on AJ Styles and WWE.
