That’s a harsh one. Injuries are one of the worst things that you can see in wrestling as you never know when one is going to strike. Someone getting hurt can put them on the shelf for a long time and the question becomes how much time a wrestler is going to be out of action. Now a top WWE star is on the injured list again and now we know a bit more about just how bad things are.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: WRESTLING RUMORS: WWE Has Surprising John Cena Match Planned For WrestleMania 39

Earlier this week, AJ Styles injured his ankle during a six man tag match at a WWE live event. Styles had to be helped out of the arena but it was not clear how badly he was injured. Styles has since posted to Twitter, announcing that he has suffered a broken ankle, but he will not be undergoing surgery. There is no word on how long Styles will be out of the ring, though he did say it would be the longest absence of his career.

Styles is a heck of a talent when he is healthy. Check out some of his better WWE moments:

Opinion: As bad as this is, it is something that could be worse. At least Styles doesn’t need surgery and didn’t tear a muscle or a ligament. Hopefully he can heal up with time and recovery and be back before we know it. Odds are this means no Royal Rumble, but maybe he can be back in time for WrestleMania. It would be a shame to not have him around for some of the biggest events of the year, but his health is what matters most.

What do you think of Styles? Who do you want to see him face when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
