AJ Styles Update
In the latest AJ Styles update, The Wrestling Observer is now reporting that TNA's original offer to AJ Styles was somewhere in the neighborhood of $200,000 per year. That's a significant reduction from the $350,000 he was said to have earned in 2013. This is the deal that Styles was said to have turned down.
Even more, the new offer wasn't even a guaranteed $200k, but rather structured more on a "per appearance" scale. If TNA was to cut back on live events, Styles would make even less in the end.
Regarding his actual status with the company, WrestleZone reported earlier in the week that he has re-signed, as TNA finally offered Styles what he wanted, and Styles accepted. Additionally, Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com reported a couple days ago that Styles and TNA are in the midst of negotiating a new deal. It appears as if it's only a matter of time before "The Phenomenal One" returns to action in TNA.
