While last week on Impact Wrestling AJ Styles came out to aid the Main Event Mafia against the Aces and Eights in the five-on-five match during 'Hardcore Justice' this week Styles re-iterated his "no one" stance and declared he would win the 'Bound for Glory' series so he could once again be TNA World Heavyweight Champion. In the meantime though Styles was still in contract negotiations with TNA, who we know has made many roster cuts in recent months.
In order for AJ Styles to make a promise that he would win the 'Bound for Glory' series to become number one contender to the World Champion he had to be under contract to TNA Wrestling. A short-term deal was negotiated for now as the two sides cannot seem to come to terms on money for a longer deal. Money being the main sticking point as noted by our friends at WrestleZone.com here, it appears that may be Styles is taking his "no one" persona outside of the ring and into the board room negotiations. Since he is one of the few remaining originals that started when TNA was founded in 2001 it seems very likely that a long-term deal will get done.
It will be interesting to see, however, if TNA fails to re-sign AJ Styles, despite his promise to become TNA World Champion again, and he somehow jumped ship to the WWE. While WWE has basically stated they have zero interest in any talent currently on the TNA roster, or any of those who were recently released, it would be a major coup for WWE to acquire the service of AJ Styles, in even the short-term. We can see him being paired with Rob Van Dam and getting a run a the WWE Tag-Team Championships.
Since the short-term deal that TNA has with AJ Styles just after 'Bound for Glory' in October we will keep you apprised of any new developments, or should a long-term deal finally be struck upon by both sides.
