The real reason why AJ Styles was bleeding from his face prior to his Wrestlemania match has been revealed, with the superstar copping a right hook from the Wrestlemania sign during his entrance.
Speculation swirled that AJ Styles had appeared to be struck with a firework or flare during his WrestleMania 38 entrance.
The WWE fan favourite was preparing to face off against Hall of Famer Edge when eagle-eyed fans noticed that AJ was bleeding on the right cheek as he walked towards the ring.
People assumed he sustained the injury during the pre-bout pyrotechnics display.
Upon closer inspection, it was hard to determine exactly whether he'd been struck by the flares or fireworks, but new footage appeared showing Styles knocking his face on the huge Wrestlemania sign as headed out for his entrance.

One person asked: "Tf happened to his face?"
While another added: "How is he bleeding already?"
As one user joked: "Did John Cena hit him?"
Meanwhile, other wrestling super-fans questioned whether something happened backstage.
Either way, it appears his bloodied face has got people talking ahead of his highly-anticipated bout with Edge.
