- In a recent interview with Catch-Newz, the COO of WWE, Triple H answered the questions regarding AJ Styles’ undisclosed injury and whether the company had a Plan B in case The Phenomenal One isn’t medically cleared to defend the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania 34.
“You always have to have a Plan B, [and] just in case you have a Plan C,” Triple H said. “AJ is an incredible performer. Replacing AJ Styles would be very difficult. [He’s] not necessarily a replaceable talent, but we would do our best.”
According to WrestlingInc, Styles wrestled his last against Rusev previous week on SmackDown Live. Last Friday, at the WWE Madison Square Garden House Show, AJ was scheduled to team up with Nakamura in a Tag Team Match against frenemies, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn. However, an injury segment was done at the beginning of the show to take Styles out of the bout.
“If my leg got cut off I’d find a way to make it to Wrestlemania,” Styles said. “I will be wrestling Shinsuke Nakamura at Wrestlemania, don’t worry about it, it’ll be fine.”
Triple H further added that the company is trying its best to get AJ medically cleared for WrestleMania “if that’s possible.”
“AJ is working diligently on rehabbing his injuries and getting himself in tip-top shape for WrestleMania,” Triple H said. “We are trying to help him with that process of getting the best care and the best rehab and everything else possible. We’re hoping for the best. Right now he says he’s feeling a lot better and will be ready to go. Obviously we’ll get him doctors to make sure that he is ready to go and get a medical clearance, if that’s possible. He’s working very hard at it, so we’re hoping for the best.”
