The latest AJ Styles update regarding his contract situation with TNA is more of the same, reports PWInsider. If something isn't worked out by December 16th, it would appear that Styles is in fact on his way out of the company.
Styles is currently accepting independent bookings and was scheduled for a Q&A tour in the UK, but that got pushed back. Word going around is that the UK tour was delayed due to Diamond Dallas Page doing a tour there around the same time. However, it's also being reported that TNA lawyers sent legal letters to the event promoters to make sure they weren't infringing on anything TNA owns when it comes to Styles.
AJ Styles is rumored to be asking for $3,000-4,000 for indy appearances.
As far as TNA is concerned, it's a simple issue of money. TNA won't give Styles what he wants and is asking him to take a significant pay cut. As a result, there's a general feeling backstage that Styles won't be the only one forced to make this decision in the coming year. Many contracts are set to expire in the next year and some feel that if TNA won't pay AJ Styles more money, they certainly won't do it for others.
