Major TNA Star’s Contract Expiring Soon



aj-styles

Word going round is that AJ Styles’ TNA contract is up in September, and the two sides have yet to come to a new contract. According to reports there has been very little attempt by TNA to get a new deal done. There had been speculation that this was the case for a few weeks, but it has now been confirmed.

This would not be the first time TNA has let a valued talent’s deal expire as Samoa Joe, Devon and Bobby Roode had theirs expire before TNA attempted to lock them up again.

The interesting thing about this is that Styles has been the TNA poster boy since the company launched in June 2002 and was the focus of the original X-Division, a multiple time world champion and has been in many of the company’s greatest matches. Styles is one of a select few branded as a “TNA guy,” similar to a generation ago with Sting being a “WCW guy.”

TNA could put themselves into a situation where WWE could come in and sign him up with WWE counterparts signed before his deal expiring. All signs show that’s the position TNA is putting themselves in.

TNA is also in the midst of a big storyline with Styles, which will culminate on tonight’s Hardcore Justice episode of Impact Wrestling.

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.”

  • Jonathan Baylor

  • Geoff

    In the words of Triple H, there is no one in TNA that the WWE should sign.

    • Jeff Dta St John

      Implying Triple H has any say in the matter. Vince still makes the decisions in WWE and he’s smart enough to know that AJ would be a tremendous acquisition for them
