AJ Styles reportedly negotiating new contract with the WWE, wants lighter schedule

After holding the WWE Championship for just over a year, AJ Styles lost to the belt to Daniel Bryan who would go onto replace him on the Survivor Series card as well.

As per Fightful.com, the Phenomenal One is under negotiation with the company for a new contract and apparently wants a much-relaxed schedule like Randy Orton’s compared to his current one.

Styles, who signed a three-year deal with the WWE in January 2016 is expected to sign a deal for the same length. Moreover, it was the 42-year-old who suggested dropping the gold to Daniel Bryan in order to spend some quality time with his family after what has been a busy year for Styles.

    I don’t think he is going anywhere what every he wants he will get. He has earn it he actually brought a lot of pride to the WWE title.

    I am not sure he wants to go back to Japan though. Even with a limited schedule there, going over to Japan puts him even further away from them. At least in WWE he will get days and weekends etc where he can go home even when he is on the road. Tougher to do in Japan.

    NJPW will pay him top dollar for a limited schedule. With his kids getting older, and him wanting to spend more time with them, it only makes sense that he stays and works a limited schedule.

    I think the man has earned a lighter schedule, and it would not preclude him for future title runs.
    If we have Lesnar appearing 3 times a year and holding the Universal title, no reason for it to stop Styles running with either top title and he would still put in more performances.
