— According to PWInsider.com, AJ Styles’ contract with TNA is due to expire in September with no agreement between both sides to extend the deal. The odd thing here is that TNA have seemingly made little attempt to address that and tie down Styles.
This isn’t new ground for TNA, this situation has occurred before with other top talents (Samoa Joe and Devon for example) where their contracts have expired with TNA then attempting to lock them down again.
The oddness of this particular situation is that that Styles has been the poster boy and face of TNA since the company launched in 2002 and is one of the few actually branded as being totally loyal to the company. Not to mention that this puts them at risk of potentially losing one of their top stars to WWE.
