As noted, AJ Styles was kept out of the ring on this week's WWE SmackDown as he's dealing with some nagging injuries and WWE wanted him rested for the Extreme Rules match against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns on May 22nd.

Styles has now been pulled from this weekend's WWE live events so he can heal and rest up. Styles was scheduled for Friday's show in Greenville, NC; Saturday's show in Raleigh, NC and Sunday's show in Columbia, SC.
