TNA star AJ Styles was forced to pull out of his match against Douglas Williams at Sunday’s Genesis pay-per-view due to injury and has provided an update on his health status. Styles wrote on Twitter.com/AJStylesOrg:
“I tore (my) hip flexor and hip labrum. I’ll be back wrestling real soon.”
Styles followed up with a timeframe of how long he’ll be out and says he will miss the company’s upcoming UK tour:
“I’ll be out 6 to 8 weeks hopefully and it if it doesn’t get better I’ll will have to have surgery.
Styles was replaced by Abyss on the pay-per-view. He came down to the ring during the Abyss vs. Williams match, hitting Williams with the TV Title belt. He appeared to be in a lot of pain during his brief appearance.
