As of this past Monday for the first time in 10 years AJ Styles became a free agent of the Wrestling world. Now word has it that TNA & Styles once again began contract negotiations and it seems as though AJ will most likely return to the company soon. Now I did find out the figures that were being through around but since I am not a "wrestling rumor site" I will not be disclosing that information but you can visit any "wrestling rumor site" for that information.
I will say this seeing the numbers I don't blame AJ a bit for leaving and if I was him I wouldn't go back because what says they won't do it again in the future. For those wondering AJ was asked to take a 150,000 dollar pay cut after his contract expired by TNA. Also it wasn't guaranteed it was more a pay per appearance contract so it could be even more of a cut. I am aware that TNA is cutting back expenses but for them to make their World Champion take a near 200,000 dollar pay cut I think is inexcusable. Yes I know they say when you making cuts start from the top well why didn't they Angle, Sting, Hogan, Dixie, etc they should have taken cuts before AJ. Now I am aware that Hogan left but what I am saying is the World Champion should be one of if not the highest paid person in the company. If he isn't he shouldn't be World Champion.
As far as I am concerned AJ shouldn't go back to TNA even though they may have made him a better offer who says this won't happen again with them shorting him on cash. It's pretty obvious to see that he is a hot commodity on the Indy circuit, I still think he will go back. As we have to think he has a family to support and himself even though an Indy company maybe less likely to stiff him on pay still. I firmly believe it's just a matter of time before he returns to TNA again.
