AJ Styles did not appear on SmackDown Live this week. He actually flew home on the Monday after WrestleMania and was said to be walking very slowly through the airport too.

We previously reported that Styles suffered a hip injury at WrestleMania, but the exact spot wasn’t known. Now thanks to PW Insider we have a much better idea.

Mike Johnson reports that Styles’ injury was suffered during the spot where he hit the big springboard forearm on Randy Orton to the outside. That Phenomenal Forearm to the floor was a great high spot for the match, but it did not do AJ Styles any favors.

Hopefully, AJ Styles will be able to recuperate after his intense WrestleMania victory and return by next week’s Superstar Shake-Up.
