NWA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles recently commented on a radio show about the possibility of TNA landing a primetime TV deal and how much better the in-ring product would be than WWE’s. Styles felt WWE’s current product revolves around too much talking and that TNA will deliver a solid product. He also said Matt Hardy would be a great fit for the promotion as well as others like CM Punk, Samoa Joe and Matt Sydal. Styles also said that Tito Ortiz knocking out Jeff Jarrett at the Hard Justice PPV didn’t undermind his title victory and that he was thankful TNA gave him the assurance that he has three years to make money and entertain fans.
