WATCH: AJ Styles vs The Top Rope After Smackdown Live!

One of the last shots of Smackdown Live! was #1 Contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Title AJ Styles, painfully sitting astride the top rope, after being knocked there by Dean Ambrose. Always a comical spot worthy of mention, but Styles went the extra step further after the show went off the air. According to live reports, Styles stayed in that very uncomfortable position for roughly ten-fifteen minutes, while other wrestlers made their entrances for the post-show dark match, which was scheduled to be Styles teaming with Seth Rollins against John Cena and Roman Reigns. And as each wrestler made their way into the ring, they decided to mess with the Phenomenal One’s predicament. Here’s some fan footage of exactly what happened.

After all of that, Styles reportedly limped to the back and was replaced by Bray Wyatt. Not that we can blame him.
