Re: Am i the only one upset about AJ styles?

I can see lots of reasons why the WWE doesn't want him. He's small, he's 36, he made a name for himself outside of the WWE, he would cost more than a normal NXT guy (you know the WWE would make him go through NXT). Not surprized at all that the WWE is showing no interest in him.

Well the WWE isn't going to sign him because they aren't interested in guys that work in TNA, supposedly. More so guys that established their name in TNA (I'm sure they'd bring Angle back). And TNA isn't going to sign him because they need to cut costs because they lost a ton of money bringing Impact on the road.

The only way to watch AJ now is to go see him live, order the DVDs, or watch him on ROH TV.

Aj styles is probably the best wrestler in the us. However if your name isnt stone cold and youre southern... I dont see you going very far. Wwe has always seem to think wrasslin when they think the south. I dont think it has anything to do with being 36.. thats young

Re: Am i the only one upset about AJ styles?

WWE doesn't want him because of age. You figure he spends a year in development to learn "WWE style" and then debuts on the main roster. Once he's on the main roster it takes him a year or two to get over and at that point he's 38-39 and is slowing down in ring and ready for retirement in a few years.

TNA obviously cannot afford AJ unless he was to take a massive pay cut and he doesn't feel he should have to (Which is his right) I can see him being back there 12-18 months down the track but right now it isn't financially suitable for them to keep a hold of AJ.

Is it a sucky situation? Not really. AJ is making a killing in the indies and both "big 2" companies are better off without him. I guess the AJ Styles fans suffer because they don't get to see him week in and week out anymore but apart from that it's pretty win-win for everybody else.

Was it just me or the AJ styles v Gulak match a total bust? I found it to be a borefest.

i'm still glad he's working with a new crop of indy guys than wrestling the same 5 dudes that he's been wrestling in TNA for 8 years.

He should've stayed in Japan. It's the only new place he'd be able to grow.

Shinsuke Nakamura. Daichi Hashimoto. Jun Kasai. Naomichi Marufuji. KENTA.

Heir to the throne.

Everyone has already answered this one for you, but honestly AJ will have fun in the Indys and will surely make a living doing it. WWE was just never in the cards for AJ and that's ok.

^^^I couldn't agree with this more. My love for the Indys surpasses anything else anyway and AJ will always be able to find work as long as he wants to. Not everyone has it like that.

That's that Gulak touch.
