AJ Styles is considered one of the best pro wrestlers in the history of the business and it is not hard to see why. He is also a true veteran who has earned the respect and admiration of fans and peers over the years. Pat McAfee also revealed something interesting about AJ Styles’ recent bloody cut.
AJ Styles squared off against Edge at WrestleMania 38, in a highly anticipated match. Prior to the match, AJ Styles cut his face while making his way to the ring. It was a noticeable bloody cut and fans got worried as well.
While speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Pat McAfee talked about AJ Styles getting his face cut and walking to the ring. McAfee revealed how the WWE producers had an amusing response to Styles’ cut.
“I was walking to gorilla which is obviously the last stop before you go out, and four different producers were like, ‘when you go out there, the bottom of the entrance is like a star, make sure you get to the middle because it is sharp on the side there,’ I was like ‘okay, yeah.’ They’re like ‘well, AJ literally just ran his face into the side of it. He’s bleeding right now.’ I was like ‘what?’ I was like ‘AJ Styles is bleeding right now?’ ‘Match hasn’t started and he’s bleeding, so we need you not to do that too. Okay, thank you so much.’ And I was like ‘you got it.’
Then the next producer came ‘hey, when you go out there, there’s a slant. Make sure you get all the way to the middle.’ I’m like, ‘oh yeah, why’s that?’ Like, now I’m gassing. ‘Well AJ Styles just ran his face into it, so we need that not to happen.’ ‘Okay, thank you so much. You saved my life.’ So then I’m walking four more steps, another producer ‘hey, on your entrance, I don’t know if you’ve heard or not.’ ‘Yep, got it. Face thing? Yeah, yeah, yeah.’”
AJ Styles lost against Edge at WrestleMania 38 after some interference from Damian Priest. We will have to wait and see how Styles and Edge will continue their feud in the coming weeks.
