With NJPW's biggest show of the year under a week away, one of their biggest stars is a lock for the show after dealing with a rough back injury for several months. AJ Styles told Wrestling Inc today that he's feeling fine, and will be good to go for his IWGP Intercontinental Title match at Wrestle Kingdom 10 against Shinsuke Nakamura.
"I feel great, man. I literally have no problems whatsoever. It's one of those little bumps in the road and I'm ready to rock," told Wrestling Inc's Raj Giri in an exclusive interview today.
Styles missed some time over the past couple of months, including a set of Ring of Honor television tapings due to the injury. Earlier this month, Styles competed against Jay Lethal at Ring of Honor Final Battle, where the back injury was a focus of the match.
Styles was also pulled from New Japan's World Tag League tournament due to the injury. Styles' back threw his status into question for both ROH and NJPW's biggest shows of the year, both of which prominently featured him.
Styles said earlier this month that he still planned on doing both shows, and wasn't sure if the injury was a slipped disc or a herniated disc. He'd been utilizing DDP Yoga to aid in recovering.
