We reported last week, stemming from an original report by PWTorch.com, that AJ Styles was furious backstage at a recent TNA taping concerning the way he has been booked as TNA Champion up to this point.
In an update to that story, ProWrestling.net is reporting that AJ Styles did indeed have a big backstage argument with TNA head of creative Vince Russo. The argument was said to be so heated that several TNA officials had to step in to break the two up. It’s being said that in addition to feeling that he has been booked to look like a weak champion, AJ Styles is also frustrated with the way TNA has booked Samoa Joe and Frankie Kazarian, who wrestles as Suicide.
Styles’ recent frustration seems to indicate, as we exclusively reported last week, that tensions are a bit high backstage in TNA right now, and a lot of wrestlers are unsure of the company’s creative direction or where they may be headed as individuals.
