I think WWE can offer him a better deal. But I dont think it will be big enough that he will sign.
Outside of WWE, AJ Styles is not a major star. He wont be getting any million dollar contracts thrown at him.
In TNA he is in a save enviroement where he knows he will be in the ME scene or just out of it. In WWE he can just aswell become a jobber.
Money isnt everything.
BUT, with the recent success of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan I do think smaller wrestlers outside of WWE are more comfortable signing with WWE now. More so then they were 6 years ago.
