Speculation is running wild among wrestling fans, brother, about where various wrestlers will decide to work in the near future. On the North American scene, Ring of Honor lost and then gained a fair amount of talent in early 2019, All Elite Wrestling continues to acquire both new and established wrestling stars, and WWE recently lost Dean Ambrose and Hideo Itami. The WWE developments led to widespread debate over which performers might be the next out of the door and reports that the company was trying to lock down superstars with soon-to-expire contracts.
This morning, it seemed like one of those speculated-about superstars who won’t be going anywhere soon, according to Wrestling News World, would be a phenomenal one – no, wait, the Phenomenal One, AJ Styles. The former WWE Champion reportedly signed a new WWE contract which “will keep Styles with the company for the foreseeable future.” It looked like fans hoping for another AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels bout or a first-time Styles vs. Kenny Omega showdown were out of luck.
However, about twelve hours later, Styles himself disputed this report on social media. He quote-tweeted a link to this report with the comment, “What was that? Are you sure? Please let me know the more because I know nothing about this” with a skeptical emoji.
So when it comes to AJ Styles, all contract speculation is once again fair game.
