AJ Styles Misses Another Show Due To Illness, John Cena Replaces Styles In Match Against Daniel Bryan

AJ Styles

AJ Styles is sick with the flu, which has forced him to miss two consecutive shows he was scheduled to appear on.

Styles was advertised to face WWE Champion Daniel Bryan in a Steel Cage Match at last night’s WWE live event in Uniondale, New York, but it was announced to fans that Styles could not appear because he is sick with the flu. With Styles sick, Bryan faced John Cena instead.

The finish saw Cena clutch Bryan in position for the Attitude Adjustment, but Bryan escaped and kicked him in the groin. Bryan then nailed Cena with the WWE Championship and escaped the cage to win the match.

Cena got the last laugh as he hit Bryan with the Attitude Adjustment after the match. Cena then gave a speech to fans.


Styles was also scheduled to face Bryan in a Steel Cage Match on Wednesday in Rosemont, Illinois. It was announced at the start of the show that he is sick with the flu and fans could receive refunds as a result. Mustafa Ali then appeared on “Miz TV” to set up a Steel Cage Match with The Miz and Bryan (which Bryan won).
