who the hell is AJ Styles really? yeah the guy WWE had no interest in. is there anyone in TNA history more overrated.
WWE has talent cuts for decades, has anyone ever said WWE was in trouble? but TNA cuts talent and OMG the sky is falling!
has there ever been talks about moral down in WWE? the talent that get released from WWE, do they ever had anything bad to say about WWE?
moral is up and down and up and down. TNA is what, 13 now? obviously TNA must be a female with all these mood swings.
First, WWE had interest in AJ Styles within his first 3-4 years in the business which is practically unheard of today (Especially if you consider it took guys like Daniel Bryan 10+ years to get there)
AJ turned down the WWE because they wanted to sign him to an OVW deal worth approximately 500 dollars a week and he was making a lot more in the indies because he was a hot commodity at the time and was working for companies like XWF and WWA. Of course a year later TNA started and they probably gave AJ more money and the rest is history.
In regards to talent cuts. WWE gets rid of guys that aren't doing anything. TNA got rid of Hulk Hogan, Sting, AJ Styles, Chris Daniels, Chris Sabin, Frankie Kazarian and a bunch of other guys that they probably could use. Replacing those talents are guys like Bram, Crazzy Steve and The Wolves, The Wolves are great but a majority of the others can't compete with the rest.
TNA drew 5000 in Brooklyn at their stadium a few years ago...
Someone posted the ROH seating charts for the Basebrawl event and tickets were doing pretty well. That was a couple of weeks ago so I'd assume it's a lot better now.
who did TNA release that was so good?
AJ wasn't released. he was offered a contract. he choose not to sign and he walked away. TNA wasn;t offering him what he thought he was worse, and TNA only offered what they thought he was worth.
Daniels and Kazarian were not released. their contract expired and TNA did not offer them anything else.
through decades WWE has released/not resign numerous good talent. Hogan, Savage, Nash, Hall, Hart, Hennig, Rude, Flair, Angle, Hardy, ect ect.
Talent released that would be classed as good by a majority of wrestling fans is as follows:
AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Chris Sabin, Doug Williams, Frankie Kazarian, Hulk Hogan (Even in a non wrestling role) Joey Ryan, Kid Kash, Luke Gallows, Mickie James, Sting, Taeler Hendrix and Tara
I know you probably don't rate any of the 13 because you wouldn't want to admit any of them were beneficial to TNA but they were and a lot of people enjoyed them.
