Dave Meltzer reports that AJ Styles is heading home and will not be on this week’s edition of SmackDown.
A fan tweeted that he saw Styles at the airport and that the former WWE Champion was moving slowly. Meltzer confirmed that he won’t be on this Tuesday’s show from Brooklyn, but could not confirm it was due to an injury.
The 41-year-old wrestled against Randy Orton at this year’s WrestleMania in the second main card match, pinning him after hitting a Phenomenal Forearm.
Orton put out an Instagram post Monday apologizing on behalf of WWE for a giant colored light on the stage that was shining in people’s faces for the majority of their match.

For the live crowd that saw this tonight during my match at #WM #wrestlemania at Met Life Stadium tonight, I would like to apologize on behalf of @WWE for screwing up and shining a bright light in your eyes for 95% of our match. You missed a really great fucking match.
We will have more on the Styles situation as soon as we have more details.
