AJ Styles has been through many wars in the past, and he will never forget one bump he took while faxing D-Lo Brown in TNA. This bump put Styles through a table and into a dream state.
While talking on his Twitch stream, AJ Styles was asked about his most brutal bump. He has taken his fair share of bad falls, but that bump with D-Lo Brown stood above the rest.
“I was talking about this the other night, and I actually had forgotten about it until someone brought the match up. The guy had said, ‘I remember your match with D-Lo Brown in TNA where he Frog Splashed you from off a ladder and put you through a table.’ It made me remember laying there and seeing D-Lo jump off the ladder, and then it just went blank. I don’t remember anything else until I came to and was just laying there.”
“I just remember being in like a dream state. I remember telling myself like, ‘You got to get up!’ It was weird. I got up and everything was ok to finish the match. I don’t remember bumping my head or having a knot, and I don’t know if it was just the impact knocking the breath out of me and losing consciousness for a second. I don’t know what happened, because I remember what we were supposed to do and everything. D-Lo was probably 250 at the time, coming from an 8 foot ladder to the outside, so that’s probably at least 10 foot for a big man coming down to the floor. That was not fun. It wasn’t a concussion though; I think it just knocked the breath out of me or something.”
AJ Styles’ career isn’t over yet, but he’s also not taking the kind of risky moves he used to in his career. Styles isn’t afraid to pull off a phenomenal every now and then, but taking that splash from D-Lo Brown is one he certainly won’t ever forget.
