As Jeremy Borash confirmed in a recent Tweet, and as we reported earlier, AJ Styles was replaced by Hernandez on this weekends set of House Shows in Louisiana & Mississippi last minute.
Borash posted "AJ Styles is out of action for the time being with a staph infection in his leg." http://twitter.com/jeremyborash
AJ was at the 1st show on Thursday, but flew home Friday morning.
He has a staph infection on his right hip that was treated on Thursday after being examined by the doctor assigned to the house show. AJ says it’s very painful.
Hernandez was called Thursday soon after getting home from TV tapings and went right from the dentist to the airport getting to the 1st show by 7PM
I also noted with interest that Jeremy posted another tweet saying "‘Elijah Burke’ will not be in TNA". Burke had teased TNA by posting the TNA logo at his website www.TheElijahExpress.com. I noted that the logo is no longer on his site as looked this morning.
