- AJ Styles is indeed a free agent and is not under contract with TNA Wrestling. While there were initial doubts about his departure and rumors he had in fact re-signed, Styles is not under contract anywhere. Should that change, we'll update.

    It’s almost criminal IMO that AJ Styles isn’t under a contract and working for a major promotion. WWE is making a mistake not bringing him in. He could instantly be put on the main roster. With his esperience there is no need to send him to NXT. That would be like an insult to make him go through that. Same goes for The American Wolves. They have no business being down in NXT. I don’t understand why 12 or 13 years ago somebody could jump from WCW, or even ECW, right onto WWE’s main roster. But now guys with the same amount of experience, or even more so, than a lot of the guys had from back in the day now have to spend so much time in NXT being retrained. It kind of confuses me.
