They’ll keep him. WWE has been changing up their roster in a lot of ways in recent months and there have been a lot more wrestlers leaving than showing up. These changes have shaken up the wrestling landscape in a huge way as it has become a question of who WWE will be keeping around. Now they have agreed to terms with a current legend on a brand new and very lucrative contract.
According to Fightful Select, AJ Styles has agreed to a new deal with WWE. There is no word on how long Styles’ new deal will be, though it is said to be worth over $3 million a year. Styles will also have bus travel paid for by the company between events. Styles’ former deal was scheduled to expire at some point in the spring or summer, which would have left him as a free agent.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes sense for WWE as they know who they need to keep around. Styles is someone who is nearing the end of his career and it would make sense to keep him around WWE for as long as they can. At the end of the day, Styles is one of the best stars in the world today and it is great to see him making this kind of money in the biggest wrestling company around.
What do you think of Styles? Who would you like to see him face in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
