AJ Styles not offered a new contract (yet)

Not sure if this is posted but AJ Styles contract is up on September and the two sides have not agreed to a new contract yet.

Over the last few weeks, there's been a lot of talk circulating around AJ Styles, who's been with TNA since day one and is one of the most celebrated talents over the course of their 11 year run. Initially we did not report the rumor but as more and more people within the company are talking about it, it's become a story we have to address.

The story making the rounds is that Styles' contract is up in September (which is just a few weeks away) and that the two sides have yet to come to a new contract. There's also allegedly been very little attempt by TNA to get a new deal done.

Obviously, this would not be the first time TNA has let a valued talent's deal expire (Samoa Joe, Devon, Bobby Roode both come to mind) before attempting to lock them up again.

However, what is insane about all this is that Styles has been the TNA poster boy since the company launched in June 2002. He was the nucleus of the original X-Division and grew into one of their best, most loyal performers, including taking part in the Styles vs. Joe vs. Chris Daniels bout that is considered the best TNA match of all time. Styles is one of a select few branded as a "TNA guy" similar to how Sting was seen as a "WCW guy" a generation ago.

The idea that TNA hasn't locked him in with about a month to go in his current deal is strange on a lot of levels - Styles' WWE counterparts would have been signed well before they were close to a deal expiring. The idea that they could put themselves into a situation where WWE could come in and swoop him up sounds ridiculous on paper, but all signs are that's the position TNA is putting themselves in.

Even odder is that TNA is in the midst of a big storyline with Styles, which will culminate on tonight's episode of Impact Wrestling.

As soon as we confirm more, we will update, but earlier today the following was posted on Styles' official Facebook page: "Where do fans want AJ Styles to be? TNA? WWE? ROH? Japan? Lots of options. Tough decisions."

And Roodes stuff was his actual contract and NOT just work visas, right?

Would be a hit I guess, but I'd get over it after two weeks. Despite the new gimmick and effort put in to his character, I still don't give a shit about him.

Christ, losing Styles would be absolutely horrific. It would be even more horrific if he made THA JUMP.

Try thinking.

Good. If there's any chance of him going to the WWE, wrestling fans will start giving him the praise he deserves. But once he resigns with TNA, he goes back to be a "spot monkey" and nowhere near bryan or punk.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Who knows with TNA, they seem to like to work the dirtsheets with contracts. I think wwe should offer him a good deal to jump - it's not like AJ seems all that happy in TNA anymore, he might be looking to see what wwe could offer. It would be now or never for him at this point.
