For those that maybe unaware at this point AJ Styles has been dealing with some injury issues recently mostly having to do with an apparent herniated disc and nerve pain in his lower back. the injury was causing AJ so many problems that he was actually sent home from a recent tour of Japan to rehab and rest his body. Working as much as he has in recent month would take a toll on the body and could make signing a contract with one company all the more appealing. (Click Here for more on that subject)
As of this writing Styles is still currently planning to work the December 18th ROH Final Battle PPV as well as the TV taping set for the following day. For whatever reason if AJ is unable to compete then Adam Cole & Kyle O' Reilly would become Jay's challengers and it would be a triple threat match instead. Hopefully, AJ will be able to compete this Friday Live in Philadelphia on PPV against Jay Lethal. I for one am looking forward to the match, because it is major matches like this that can help ROH move forward to the next level and get more eyes on the company.
