As noted, AJ Styles suffered what has been described as a “minor ankle injury” during his TLC main event title match against Dean Ambrose at WWE TLC Sunday night. Consequently, Styles was kept out of the ring at last night’s WWE Smackdown Live event in Tyler, TX as a “precautionary measure.” As of now, Styles is set to defend the WWE World Title against James Ellsworth on Smackdown Live tonight.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio noted that Styles might have suffered the injury when he did the springboard 450 to Dean Ambrose through the table.

With regards to WWE Smackdown tonight and this weekend’s live events, there is no word on how Styles might be used, and although his injury is not severe, he might be limited tonight and kept out of the ring this weekend, although no decisions appear to have been made as of now.
