WWE has been missing AJ Styles for two months now, a longer period of time than a lot of fans expected. There were reports earlier this month that he would be at the November 10th SmackDown in Columbus, Ohio, but Styles wasn’t spotted in the Buckeye State. Now, we have a bit of an update about his return status.

AJ Styles’ departure from television went down during the September 22nd episode of SmackDown. Following a singles match against Finn Balor, Styles suffered an attack by both Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso. They were doing The Bloodline’s bidding, as Styles was slated to be John Cena’s tag team partner at the time.

Ringside News reached out to inquire about AJ Styles’ return. We were told that he will be back “imminently.”

Ringside News also exclusively reported that Corey Graves will be back on SmackDown this week. While we were not told exactly when AJ Styles will be back, he should be expected very soon.


AJ Styles and the OC can get back to business once he returns. Still, they won’t be a full faction, because Luke Gallows is currently out of action with knee injury. Ringside News also exclusively reported on whether there is any talk internally about having Karl Anderson branch off on his own, much like Ivar, of the Viking Raiders, did due to Erik’s neck injury.

Keep checking back with us here at Ringside News for more on this story, and many more. You never know what will break next, but we will be here with all the headlines you need.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
