Referee stops match as AJ Styles get injured during WWE live event


AJ Styles suffered an injury at tonight’s WWE live event in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

There aren’t many details available at the moment but fans at the (Watch Video Here) show say that the referee threw up the “X” sign to end the match and it appears to be some sort of leg/ankle injury after an over-the-top rope spot during a match between The OC and The Judgment Day.

You can see the video below of the referee and the trainers checking on Styles on the outside of the ring. Styles was helped up by Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and was unable to walk under his own power. We will pass along more information as it becomes available. Hopefully, it’s nothing that will keep him out of action for too long. (Watch Video Here)





Mia Yim gets new nick during WWE Raw.

WWE recently trademarked the name and there was speculation that it was for Yim because of the origin of the word. It turned out that the speculation was correct.

Yim returned to WWE Raw last week to even things up in the feud between The OC and The Judgment Day. Yim appeared at ringside last week to attack Rhea Ripley. Yim returned to action tonight on Raw against Tamina Snuka.

Rhea Ripley is the female member of Judgement Day.


The second hour of WWE WrestleMania Backlash kicked off with AJ Styles vs. Edge, another WrestleMania rematch.

It was a great match that included some interference when Damian Priest walked out to the ringside area, despite the stipulation saying that he was banned. Finn Balor ran out to take out Priest but a masked person knocked Styles off the top rope and Edge was able to lock Styles in the crossface submission.

Edge won when Styles passed out but the feud continues because Edge only won because of the assist by the mystery person, who turned out to be Rhea Ripley.




WWE’s internal list of top babyfaces not entirely accurate.


There was a lot of chatter this week about the internal babyface ranking list that states that Cody Rhodes is number 2 behind Bobby Lashley and ahead of AJ Styles.

It turns out that the list is not exactly accurate, as first reported by Ringside News. RSN reports that the initial report on the listing is something that was put together by Bruce Prichard and Ed Koskey. A WWE source stated the following: “Then, every few months, Vince does not like the way it looks and he moves names around.”

The source added that the report is “supposed to be the order of who is number one and number two and down the list, but it’s subjective and nothing is official unless Vince signs off on it” and that it’s not definitive and everything in WWE has to get Vince McMahon’s blessing.

It was also noted that the writers’ assistants update the rosters on a daily basis and while the leaked list is a good reference, it is not “an accurate look inside the company.” Ricochet is a recent example of the constant changes in WWE. A couple of weeks ago he was slotted as the number 2 babyface on SmackDown and then he wasn’t booked for WrestleMania.

At this point, it looks like WWE is all in with Cody’s push as one of the top names on the roster. He is scheduled for a rematch with Seth Rollins at WrestleMania Backlash and things seem to be trending towards an eventual shot at the WWE Universal Championship. Of course, plans can always change in WWE and Cody is considered a top star right now but that may not be the case in 6 months. His treatment in WWE will be interesting to keep an eye on.

Cody Rhodes slotted internally as number 2 babyface behind Lashley.


It’s clear that WWE is fully behind Cody Rhodes right now as one of the top babyfaces on Monday Night Raw and it appears that he will eventually challenge for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at some point.

Rhodes got his first WWE Raw win in six years last night against The Miz and he is now on the path towards a rematch with Seth Rollins at WrestleMania Backlash.

PWInsider is reporting that internally, Cody Rhodes is slotted as the number two babyface on the brand, second to Bobby Lashley. AJ Styles is listed as the number 3 babyface.


Lashley is currently in a feud with Omos, Rhodes is feuding with Seth Rollins and AJ Styles is involved with Edge and his faction.

On SmackDown, Roman Reigns is obviously listed as the number one heel for SmackDown and the top babyface is Drew McIntyre. Reigns vs. McIntyre is listed for upcoming house shows.

AJ Styles tried to get The Undertaker out of retirement “one more time”


The Undertaker hasn’t wrestled since his Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 in 2020. Taker had his Final Farewell at Survivor Series 2020 and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame last Friday.

The Undertaker stated leading up to the WWE Hall Of Fame that he could squeeze out one more match if he wanted to do so and at the ceremony, he ended his speech by saying never say never.

While doing an interview with Wrestling Inc, Styles stated that he wishes the match could’ve been in front of fans instead of a cinematic match. Thus, Styles did try to convince Taker to do one more, but Taker didn’t take the call because he knew it was time to walk away.

“I think we all knew that once the Boneyard match got the reaction that it did, that might be it. I called, and he didn’t return my calls. Because he knew, ‘hey, he’s going to convince me to have another match.’”

Styles lost to Edge at WrestleMania Sunday following a distraction by Damian Priest. WWE has booked Styles vs. Priest for next week’s Raw.


Tommaso Ciampa Pitched For Edge’s New Stable.


Fightful is reporting that former WWE NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa has been pitched to join Edge’s new stable.

Edge began forming his stable last night at WrestleMania when Damian Priest helped him defeat AJ Styles. Apparently, there are plans for at least two more people to join them in the very near future.

Ciampa has been making appearances on the main roster in recent weeks and his match at NXT Stand & Deliver was presented to fans as his goodbye to the brand.

In 2019, Ciampa talked about not wanting to move up to Raw or SmackDown. During an interview on Lilian Garcia’s podcast, he said the following: Now, it’s become a thing where I’ve legitimately vocalized to them like, ‘If I have to go to Raw or SmackDown, then I’m gonna retire and I would love to produce or coach or be a part of it. There’s no way I taking on that load and going, ‘Yeah, you know what? I’ll just have a six-month run and then call it quits.’ I just won’t do it, It’s just not worth it to me.”

Ciampa also talked about the number of bumps left on his bump card and how the NXT schedule is beneficial to him. If Ciampa is part of a stable and he is able to work a reduced schedule, the stable could be used to feature him on TV while not having to wrestle all the time.


WrestleMania: See the big plan for Damian Priest & Edge.


For those of you wondering what the deal is between Edge and Damian Priest, there are big plans in store for them.

As seen tonight at WWE WrestleMania 38, Damian Priest showed up at ringside during Edge’s match with AJ Styles. Priest’s presence caused a distraction that allowed Edge to recover and hit Styles with a spear to win the match.

As reported by Fightful, Edge is starting a new heel stable on the Raw brand. The idea is to add more to Edge’s heel presentation and a few names have been discussed for the stable.

Edge has new theme music and got a completely new entrance at WrestleMania to get over his new heel character.

No word yet on who else might join the stable but it looks like we will find out more on Monday Night Raw.


Damian Preist helps Edge beat AJ Styles.


Edge and AJ Styles wrestled for the first time ever at WWE WrestleMania in Dallas.

Notes from the match (written in real-time):

Styles had blood on the side of his face as he walked to the ring. Edge had a throne and fire around him on the stage for his entrance. Styles started out with a dropkick and an arm drag. Styles followed up with a kick to the hamstring.

Edge tried early for the spear but Styles moved out of the way. Edge eventually took over on offense for the next few minutes. There was a spot in the match where Styles charged at Edge but Edge moved and Styles crashed head first into the turnbuckle. Styles countered a move from Edge with a suplex back first into the turnbuckles.

Moments later, Styles did a springboard DDT off the top rope. Styles tried a powerbomb off the top rope but he transitioned into a torture rack powerbomb. Styles hit some elbows to the head but Edge countered into a jumping DDT. Styles kicked out of the pin attempt. They traded punches, Styles hit a German suplex. Both men were slow to get up.

The next big spot in the match was Edge suplexing Styles off the top rope and onto the ring apron. Styles fought back and he hit a springboard 450 splash on Edge in the ring. Edge missed a spear, Styles hit the Styles Clash, Edge kicked out. Damian Priest showed up at ringside. That allowed Edge to recover and spear Styles as Styles was going for the phenomenal forearm. Edge pinned Styles to win the match.


Pat McAfee explains why AJ Styles had blood stain on his face.


Last night at WWE WrestleMania, when AJ Styles walked out to the ring with blood on his face, there were reports from the building from fans saying that the cut was caused by the pyro.

However, other fans noted that it looked like Styles hit his face on the WrestleMania stage (the star) and Styles may not have been aware that he had the blood on his face as he made his way to the ring.

Pat McAfee noted today on his YouTube show that Styles was busted open as he was leaving the Gorilla Position and he did indeed hit the star on the stage. McAfee said that people backstage told him to walk directly in the middle area because Styles had hurt himself earlier in the night.

Wrestling Inc. has a clip of the moment when Styles hit his head on the star.


AJ Styles stained with blood on the side before fight with Edge.


For those of you watching WWE WrestleMania, you may have noticed that AJ Styles had blood on the side of his face as he walked to the ring for his match with Edge.

The announcers did not say what caused the blood and they said that they would try to find out. Bryan Alvarez tweeted that the blood was caused by a “pyro incident” so apparently the pyro was set off too close to him.

This has happened before, most notably several years back during The Undertaker’s entrance. In his case, he was burned in the face as the pyro came out of the ring post.

UPDATE: Fans in attendance say that it looks like Styles hit his face on the star just before he walked out on the stage. It was not the pyro.


AJ Styles clarifies he extended his contract with WWE, not a new deal.


Although AJ Styles is staying with WWE, that doesn’t mean he has signed a new deal. This past February, it was reported Styles signed a new deal that was for big money.

Styles told Alex McCarthy of Inside The Ropes that he didn’t sign anything new, but rather extended his existing deal.

“Well, let me make one thing clear. I didn’t sign anything recently. I had something on my contract where I got to decide, kind of a player option, what I want to do, and we just extended the contract that I already had. So you can’t believe everything you read on the internet except we’re on the internet talking. Time is running out, as far as AJ Styles is concerned. I am getting older. The ability to put on great matches is getting a little bit harder. I don’t want to embarrass myself at the same time. I want to get out while I can and still have somewhat of a legacy. I don’t want to have to work anywhere else. I’d love to work within WWE, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen if I’ll have the chance.”

Styles noted he would like to be a scout for WWE when his days as an in-ring performer are over. He noted that he will have to figure that out with the company when that time comes.

Styles will wrestle Edge in a singles match at WWE WrestleMania 38.


WWE makes another change to the WrestleMania card.


As we’ve talked about several times, “plans change” a lot in WWE and don’t be surprised if the card for WrestleMania gets shuffled a few times before next weekend.

Originally, WWE had AJ Styles vs. Edge advertised for Sunday but plans changed and it the date was to be decided later. WWE then announced that the match would happen on WrestleMania Saturday. However, that has changed and the match is now back on Sunday, according to Michael Cole on SmackDown. As of this writing, the match is still listed for Saturday on WWE.com.

WrestleMania: Edge and AJ Styles versus to come first night.


WWE appears to have changed the night that a significant WrestleMania 38 match will be taking place on.

WWE.com now lists Edge vs. AJ Styles for WrestleMania 38 night one. The match was originally announced for night two.

After Edge issued an open challenge for anyone to face him, Styles stepped up and was confirmed as Edge’s WrestleMania opponent three weeks ago. Edge then turned heel and laid out Styles with two con-chair-tos.

Styles made his return to Raw this week and had to defend his WrestleMania spot against Seth Rollins. Styles won the match by disqualification after Edge interfered and attacked him with a steel chair. With Rollins losing, he was still left without a path to WrestleMania. Rollins vowed that Raw won’t happen next week until he gets a WrestleMania moment.

WrestleMania 38 is being held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3. Here’s the updated lineup for the event:

“I had no idea I was going to be WWE NXT Champion”, Dolph Ziggler.


Dolph Ziggler is one of the latest main roster stars to go to WWE NXT as a way to help boost the ratings of the show since Monday Night Raw also airs on the USA Network.

Before Ziggler, WWE had AJ Styles on the program for a feud with Grayson Waller. Since Ziggler arrived, The Miz, Robert Roode, Rey & Dominik Mysterio have also appeared.

Unlike the other names mentioned, Ziggler was given the NXT Champion. While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Dolph Ziggler talked about winning the NXT Championship, which he noted that he was going to win the title at all.

“It’s pretty wild. I don’t want to do in-character stuff, this is a really cool moment, I’m slightly richer. I’m just kidding, it’s awesome. I had no idea I was going to be NXT Champion. I didn’t plan on it. All I wanted to do was check out some new talent scout amount, see who’s got what it takes to go to the next level at some point, maybe report back, say, hey, Raw, hey, SmackDown, hey Vince McMahon, I see something and these guys, these gals, they could do something big in the future. Let me get my hands on them and next thing you know, two weeks later, I’m the NXT Champion.”

Ziggler will defend the NXT Title against Bron Breakker at NXT Stand & Deliver next Saturday. You can watch the entire interview by clicking on the player below (quotes can be found at the 39:39 mark:


Wrestling Hall of Famer, Ric Flair compares Bryan Danielson & AJ Styles.


This week on “WOOOOO Nation,” WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair shared his thoughts on AJ Styles, compared Styles to Bryan Danielson, and talked about what WWE should do with Cody Rhodes.

Ric Flair talking about AJ Styles:

“AJ is one of the greatest babyfaces of all time. When he wants to be, he can be soft and mellow, which he really is in real life. He’s a very humble guy. He’s very likable. He can do anything.”

Flair was asked if Styles is better than Bryan Danielson:

“Bryan Danielson is very good, but he’s not AJ Styles,” Flair said.

Flair on what WWE should do with Cody Rhodes:

“Cody is a really good talker. I’d have him go out there to say what it takes from the heart, and he would be very well received,” Ric continued.

“He’s really pulled his dad’s legacy. It’s come full circle back with WWE. His dad was such a big star for so many years. I think if he walked out the door in Texas, of course his dad is from Austin, dressed up, which he’s into clothes, which you know, I’m a big fan of that. I’d make him the hottest heel in the country.”

Flair continued, “Actually, I would listen to what the crowd said when he walked out at Mania. That would be my opinion. I would say walk out there. Let it breathe. Let the crowd chant what they think.”

AJ styles shows possibilities of quiting WWE for AEW


Signed from New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2016, he debuted in the Royal Rumble, squaring off with Roman Reigns and allowing the world to see The Phenomenal One for who he really is.

Since then, he has been nothing short of incredible, and has been pushed to the moon.

Following his move, he has held the WWE Championship twice, the WWE United States Championship three times and is the current holder of the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

He is a main eventer, a talent unlike any other in the company, who can have genuinely amazing matches with pretty much anyone.

His trilogy with John Cena, for example, produced three absolute classics.

He is ageing, though, and turned 43 last month.


There could be the opportunity to move away from the company in the coming years, and he has been quizzed on the possibility of joining All Elite Wrestling.

Of course, Styles has history with plenty of AEW stars, leading the Bullet Club in NJPW and previously working with the likes of the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega.

A reunion could have been on the cards, then, and Styles has not ruled out the possibility of switching companies.

Speaking on his Twitch stream, as transcribed by Wrestlinginc, he said: “As far as AEW is concerned, never say never, right?


“But I think once my career is done, I’m hopefully just going to work for WWE in some capacity.

“What would I do? I’d like to be a recruiter, go scout some guys. I think that would be fun. I would have no problem going to the indies.

“I know we have scouts going to weightlifting contests and what not to get these big guys.”

He has confirmed that, in an ideal world, he would like to transition into a backstage role, but again stopped short of ruling out an eventual move to AEW.

He added: “I want to get guys and girls who have wanted to do this their whole life, give them some advice, check up on them from time to time, and help them get to the next level or the Performance Center.


“A lot of my friends are [in AEW], guys I love, but I know what I’m doing in WWE. I know what’s asked of me and I kind of like that.

“Change always – some change sucks. You know how one thing is done and the other is not worth the hassle.

“I don’t need, at least right now, to go anywhere else. So, why would I? But again, never say never.”

This seems like a fairly switched-on assessment from Styles, who clearly believes his role in WWE is well defined.

However, should AEW come knocking with a mega-money offer, who knows if he’ll turn it down?
