Re: AJ Styles Reportedly Offered Huge Money; Reason For Turning Down Six Figure ROH/NJPW Deal

The question is: His deal is NXT only? Because I doubt Vince has any idea on who he is.

In other words, NXT is fucking going National TV? Becuase I can't explain how they are allowed to "waste" so much money in 4 guys, since the other three will be paid a lot too. And they are going to NXT for sure too. I don't get it.

And this news are basically saying that he is not debuting at the Rumble. It's not any news, but let's be prepared to watch the Roman's show again. Oh yeah.

If you want to start with NJPW, see amazing wrestling matches, and a better event than Wrestlemania, please read this

Thanks to RuthlessAggrEvan for that. Is going to have English commentary again, so there are no excuses guys.

Please forgive my English...

Reports say AJ's deal isn't for development, and it was a main roster contract, along with Nakamura. Doc & Anderson are going to NXT though, which is weird considering Gallows main roster history.

Re: AJ Styles Reportedly Offered Huge Money; Reason For Turning Down Six Figure ROH/NJPW Deal

AJ Styles said he got paid 2.5X the amount TNA offered him in 2014. TNA offered him $200K so AJ probably made around 450-500K in 2014. In 2016, his value as an asset to any company is much higher than 2014, so he is getting fucking PAID.

And they are not paying Styles this much to wrestle in front of 400 people. AJ is probably getting paid 5X what Finn Balor is making.

They are buying people that gonna make Reigns look great in the ring and at the same time taking all the talent that other promotions have in order to make WWE look like the only option for all kind of viewers.

All of them are going to be feed to HHH pets and Cena and later some idiot here gonna make a threads ala ''Nakamura did NOT get buried''.

Re: AJ Styles Reportedly Offered Huge Money; Reason For Turning Down Six Figure ROH/NJPW Deal

styles/naka etc were all in new japan and new japan world only has 20,000 subs worldwide so not sure how many subs those guys are going to sell for wwe network in japan..

wwe probably doesn't see styles as draw so i would be surprised if they offered more than a del rio who is getting $400,000

and what the fuck are roh doing offering exclusive deals. its a complete waste of money for someone like them whose biggest gate last year was 2,000 (its funny people saying wwe are not signing styles for nxt who drew 15,000 and 10,000 gates last year). secondly signing people to exclusive deals will mean everyone there will want exclusive deals and you have a very unhappy locker-room long term if they don't get them
