AJ Styles is currently one of the veteran stars in WWE. While many have joined AEW upon contract expiry, ‘The Phenomenal One’ could also jump the ship. Billi Bhatti reported on Keepin’ it 100 with Konnan that Styles is unvaccinated, and his WWE contract is up in January, though there is an option for another year. This would free him up to go to AEW, which he did consider when his contract expired just as the company launched in early 2019. Ricochet Is Dating Surprising WWE Diva
AJ Styles was furious at WWE in the past
According to Doc Gallows, Styles was “really p****d off” when WWE separated him from The Club in the 2016 draft.
Speaking on the Generation of Wrestling podcast, Gallows reflected on WWE’s decision not to officially reform the Bullet Club with AJ Styles and Finn Balor. He also discussed Styles’ reaction to WWE’s controversial 2016 roster changes:
“They put us with Finn for a little bit on RAW. We weren’t on any show with him very much at all, other than a couple of months on RAW. He was there, we were on SmackDown at one point, I think he was back in NXT. We were with AJ a lot. We did The Club with AJ, and then when they split The Club up they didn’t tell AJ or us. He was really p****d off, and we went to the other show [RAW],” Gallows said.
