It's never good to lose a guy who alteast a portion of your audience is watching solely for that person. Styles represents to many as the face of TNA, and to some one of the last reasons to still watch the product. Not the same but Hogan brought in an audience that most likely isn't turning in any longer since he left.

This leaves Angle, Hardy, and Sting as Guys who people are tuning in to see specifically on a large scale level. Two out of those 3 are bout done and Hardy May be on his way out as well. I love Roode and Aries, but I'm not sure they're enough to keep the viewership from continuing to sink.

once upon a time AJ Styles the heart and soul of TNA. that was over 3 years ago.
AJ has been getting a nice push over the last few months, and how has that helped TNA? they have seen some of the worst ratings in history and are in such bad shape they have had to come crawling back to Orlando, and they're even doing house shows in High Schools. good job AJ Styles!
AJ Styles is replaceable. he was a big fish in a little pond, but others in TNA have passed him.

And where you read that? The crowd was unbelieveable big and Dixie said something about their biggest attendance... So was bigger than a sold out Wembley Arens
Daniels was released with the specfic intention of freshening him up. AJ is a totally different story. Look the current TV TNA is pushing much, much cheaper talent than before. But for some strange reason the penny hasn't dropped for some reason.

Yep. TNA have realised that they are more WWE Main Event than WWE Raw. They can put on more or less any wrestler and get the same amount of ratings. So why pay a premium above market value for talent when WWE offered entry level wages for AJ Styles?

TNA has multiple guys they can push in 2014 plus that could have just as much of an Impact as AJ, or more. Booby Roode, Austin Aries, Magnus, James Storm. even Samoa Joe, who himself was a TNA original right?

I doubt it....There is too much filler in their shows....Too much that I fast forward without missing a thing....
Their product has really gone backwards IMO...

If its not a work, I dont think he'd end up in WWE. They're focusing on a homegrown talent right now and AJ was in TNA for 11 and half years, so thats too long to rebrand him as WWE guy. He didnt show up in ROH since 2006, so I dont think he'll be back there, but defiantly he'd make their shows more interesting. Especially now, when almost everybody valuable is gone from their roster. If the rumours about ~ 3,500$ per apperance are true, I dont think we'll see him in PWG, but some limited apperances are possible. He can also work in some indy feds, that nobody knows. Kevin Nash is asking 5,000$ for apperance and he's booked quite often around the world. Hope to see him back in New Japan on a full time basis. They've the best roster ever already but with AJ Styles it'd be even better. I want to see him competing in G1 Climax and his matches with Naito, Okada and Nakamura!

AJ Styles is replaceable. he was a big fish in a little pond, but others in TNA have passed him.

In all fairness they were losing money that whole time they were touring. So them returning to Orlando isn't on AJ. It was Hogan's idea...plus it was Hogan's show. Ok. He wasnt in charge, but he took LOTS of TV time. Them returning to Orlando is the result of bad choices the past few years. Also, styles WAS getting a good push, but mostly off of TV touring the world...so you saying people didn't tune in to see AJ, well, he wasn't gonna be there, so why would they.

Anyways. I started watching TNA for AJ. Then I feel in love with it for MCMG, Red, Beer Money, Gen Me, the hell of tag and Xdivision they HAD. They had a really good roster. I still watch TNA, but don't enjoy it. If AJ leaves for good, then probably so will I. Not because of AJ, but because theres nothing I'm liking.

(Except Shaws skits...and it's a matter of time b4 TNA shits on it.)
