AJ Styles participated in a dream match at Wrestlemania 38. The Phenomenal one faced Edge during a singles match on night 2 of the PPV.
The fact that the former world champion had been cut open before the match even began was what really caught everyone’s attention. During his entrance, a noticeable cut was made to his upper right cheek.
Wrestlemania: Edge vs AJ Styles
Edge won the match despite the cut. During the contest, Edge didn’t seem to be bothered by his injury. AJ Styles hit a Styles Clash on his third attempt to end the match. Edge managed to kick out the final round, much to the delight of the crowd.
AJ went to the ring apron in search of Phenomenal Forearm, but Damian Priest appeared out of nowhere. Styles was distracted for a second, before returning to his opponent.
Edge was able to overcome the distraction and knock Styles out with a spear, while Styles was still in the air. Edge continued to pin Styles. This seems to have been the beginning of the reported heel group, led by Rated R Superstar.
