Reports online are stating that TNA wrestler AJ Styles' contract is up in September and a new deal has not been reached as of this moment.
Could this possibly lead to us seeing "The Phenomenal One" in a WWE ring before the year is out?
The TNA star has been with the company since its inception in 2002 and has held the TNA World Championship four times, along with numerous other titles. Styles has wrestled all over the world for various promotions and even appeared for WCW way back in 2001.
Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked him the best professional wrestler in the world in 2010. Signing him to a contract would be a good signing for WWE. A well-established veteran who can fly all around the ring. He could put on amazing matches with some of the WWE Superstars.
The report states that there has been very little attempt by TNA to get a new deal done and if Styles' contract expires, it would not be the first time that this has happened as the contracts of Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode and Devon all expired before they could be re-signed.
This does not seem to be the smartest way to do business. The talent would be free to talk to WWE or other companies if there not tied down to a contract.
The following was also posted on Styles' Facebook page recently: "Where do fans want AJ Styles to be? TNA? WWE? ROH? Japan? Lots of options. Tough decisions."
But the question is, would Styles be a main event star in WWE like he is in TNA or would he relegated to being a regular high flyer who might hold a mid-card title?
If I was asked two or three years ago then I know I'd doubt if Styles would make it in WWE, but with the recent success of guys like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, Styles can add something new to a roster which is lacking a talented high flyer.
