While TNA Wrestling hasn't completely given up on re-signing AJ Styles, there's been no movement over the last week. If Styles doesn't come back to the table soon, the company plans on spending the money on other talent.
One name drawing interest is Chris Hero (f/k/a Kassius Ohno) but so far that interest hasn't been mutual. We're told Hero really hopes to return to WWE one day and feels any deal with TNA would hinder those aspirations. According to our source, TNA would pay Hero more than their standard lower level contract and see him as a guy like ECIII that they could quickly turn into a key player.
It's interesting to note I received this information before the news broke that company had signed Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards. I'm not sure if money used on their contracts was part of what was set aside for Styles but the word is The American Wolves have reached an agreement with TNA Wrestling.
