A.J. Stay or A.J. Go?

Don't know if there was already a thread posted on this, but what's anyones take on A.J. Styles resigning with TNA? Word from the news sites is WWE isn't into signing Styles because of his homegrown TNA tenure (remember Chris Harris?) and I believe money is still the issue with him resigning to TNA. What's the best fit in your opinion for A.J.? I'm definitely in the 'stay with TNA' boat, as he could actually get ahold of that Bound For Glory win and regain the TNA Title.

The only Chad Law that matters.

If he goes to TNA he will just become another Kofi Kingston or Dolph Ziggler, get no mic time and work the mid-card til his contract runs out and he walks back to TNA with his tail between his legs

Re: A.J. Stay or A.J. Go?

I'd love to see him go to NJPW where he could put on excellent matches in front of fans who would appreciate his talent instead of the retarded WWE & TNA fans who are more into teenage soap opera storyline material & "Derp his mic skills derp" ... but then again that's just me. Dude's never got the amount of respect he deserves IMO so I just hope whatever he does, he's happy with it.

Re: A.J. Stay or A.J. Go?

I'm consistently dumbstruck by the fact that the wrestling business doesn't work on a "see talent? want talent" basis. When it comes to AJ Styles there are people who will argue that his success in TNA isn't enough to attract the attention of the WWE. They aren't necessarily wrong. What they are, however, is missing the point. AJ Styles, regardless of any alleged name value or exposure, is undoubtedly more talented and better equipped to succeed in the business than at least some of the WWE roster. That is the one criteria by which they should be evaluating talent. They should should want that no matter what, whether he came to prominence in TNA or NXT or Beanpole Wrestling, Whereverthefuck.

It sometimes seems like WWE and TNA are in competition to see who can find the most irrelevant talent and run with it. As though they have something to prove by creating stars from the greenest of talentless rookies. Now just imagine if they worked from the following philosophy: Hire the people who are obvious. They're obvious for a reason. Wouldn't it be lovely?

Go.

This may be the last chance he may get to shine on a real stage, be it WWE or NJPW. If anything, he can come back later as a "ex-WWE superstar" and get the push he's been deserving for years... if TNA is still around at all.

The guy has a family, and seems to be a family man. TNA would the the best choice if it came down to wanting to spend as much time with them as he can. That being said of course, the state TNA is in right now. If he went to WWE he would be making a lot more money there then in TNA, which also benefits his family too. It can't hurt to try and get into WWE for the money.But he'll always have a job in TNA nonetheless. That being said he'll always be a big fish in a small pond with TNA.

Would he really? He is not a jobber in TNA, he is one of their stars he gets paid well. I doubt WWE would pay much more for him in the first year. If you thing about it only about 10% of wwe fans know the guy

Re: A.J. Stay or A.J. Go?

He should go.

He hasn't been treated as the top star he should be in TNA since the beginning of 2010 when Bischoff and Hogan came in. This could be his last shot to get into WWE. He should take it and give it a shot. He'll always be considered a legend in TNA and a hall of famer in that company. He should try WWE whilst he can.

If not, go to NJPW. They always seem to treat their talent a lot better and with more respect than pretty much any other company anyway and Styles would put on some amazing matches there.
